Secret Home Remedies

Here are a few remedies that I am going to try (thanks, Linda). I am especially excited about the fruit fly remedy (but at least Asher has learned the word "bug" with them flying around our house.)

Better bananas
Peel a banana from the bottom and you won't have to pick the little 'stringy things' off of it. That's how the primates do it.
Take your bananas apart when you get home from the store. If you leave them connected at the stem, they ripen faster.
Choosing peppers
Peppers with 3 bumps on the bottom are sweeter and better for eating.
Peppers with 4 bumps on the bottom are firmer and better for cooking.

Reheat Pizza
Heat up leftover pizza in a nonstick skillet on top of the stove, set heat to med-low and heat till warm. This keeps the crust crispy. No soggy micro pizza.

No More Mosquitoes
Place a dryer sheet in your pocket. It will keep the mosquitoes away.

Goodbye Fruit Flies
To get rid of pesky fruit flies, take a small glass, fill> it 1/2' with Apple Cider Vinegar and 2 drops of dish washing liquid; mix well. You will find those flies drawn to the cup and gone forever!

Get Rid of Ants
Put small piles of cornmeal where you see ants. They eat it, take it 'home,' can't digest it so it kills them. It may take a week or so, especially if it rains, but it works and you don't have the worry about pets or small children being harmed!

I am definitely going to try the mosquito thing. Radnor's face looks like he has been in a war zone, with all of the mosquito bites!
