  • To remove that lingering garlicky scent and texture after handling garlic, wash hand with either a stainless steel spoon or a handful of salt. Both work.


  • Static cling? Rub your garment with a dryer sheet to alleviate The Cling.

  • It’s gases in the cells of the onion, released when cut, that make you cry when slicing the delicious root. To somewhat neutralize the effect, either stick the onion in the freezer for a few minutes before cutting or run hot water periodically over the onion slices as you chop.

  • To remove fresh blood from fabric, rub stain with saliva from the owner of the blood. Only spit from the blood donor will work–it’s an enzyme thing.


  • To remove old blood from fabric, rub stain with pure ammonia. Windex doesn’t qualify.
