Banana Shoe Polish
Views: 1481 | Average Rating:  1.8 | Rating Count: 5 | Comments: 0

A banana peel can substitute as a polishing rag for leather shoes; its slippery qualities clean and condition the shiny surface nicely and is a great thrifty tip.  First peel a banana and eat the inside or save it for later.  Then separate the peel into 2 or 3 sections (lengthwise) and rub the inside flesh of the banana peel over your leather shoes.  One banana peel will usually do one pair of shoes.  Now compost the banana peel and thanks for reusing something you already had.

How to Remove a Broken Light Bulb in the Socket?
Views: 1290 | Average Rating:  1.4 | Rating Count: 28 | Comments: 0

Breaking a light bulb while it's still in a fixture could be a disaster, but a popular vegetable can help.  First - Turn off the power by removing the fuse or flipping the circuit breaker for the light fixture.  Then find some safety goggles, grab a raw potato and cut your potato in half.  Gently push the potato into the broken bulb and turn the potato counterclockwise until you've unscrewed the base of the light bulb, that was left in the socket.  Dry out the socket before replacing the bulb.

Keep a Night Light Handy
Views: 844 | Average Rating:  1 | Rating Count: 2 | Comments: 0

Keep a few extra night lights handy to use for house guests.  Plug one in to their sleeping area, bathroom, kitchen or hallways, for easy guidance if they wake in the middle of the night.  If your guests are children, this allows you to check on them without turning on lights that may wake them up.  Travel plans in your future?  Carry a couple with you, in case the place you are staying doesn't have any available!
Sleep well!
