Separating Seeds

When separating seeds from persimmons (wild) use a mesh "dedicates" bag to squeeze the pulp through leaving the seeds on the inside. The dedicates bag is what you'd use to wash delicate items in the washing machine.

De-Icer

Category: Other

I keep a spray bottle of Prestone Windshield de-icer in my car. I work evenings so quite often I have frost on my windows when I leave work. So instead of scraping my windows I just spray all the windows with the de-icer and let the stuff do its magic while I sit in the car out of the cold.

Gift Giving

Category: Other

My tip is for gift/Christmas giving. When I see a gift perfect for someone I buy it no matter what time of year. I find it actually easier to shop year round. I have a closet with bags that have everyone's name on it. So when I find a gift I put it in the bag for that person. When that persons birthday comes up I go to my bag and there is a gift! I have save time, I spread out the cost of gift giving over the year and haven't had to fight the crowds during the Christmas madness! I hope this helps.

Buy 3% hydrogen peroxide at a drug store. When you feel that a flu or a cold is coming, you can cure it before it sinks through all the way. All you need to do is put one to two drops of hydrogen peroxide into your ear. Wait for a minute for it to fizz then move onto the other ear. The infection will be gone when you use this trick. Hydrogen peroxide can also be used as a mouth wash if you have really bad breath. Try mixing it with water and use it as a mouth wash and it'll help your breath as well as whiten your teeth.
