Useful Thursday

Flat Cola

Don't pour flat cola down the sink, instead pour it into your toilet bowl and leave for an hour before flushing. It'll get rid of any limescale deposits and stains.

Wine Glasses

Use wine glasses as candle holders. To cast romantic shadows at the dinner table, place a votive candle in a thick-walled glass, anchored in a bed of sand or small pebbles (it makes wax cleanup a snap).

Coat Rack

Display photos and art on a coat rack over the mantel or in a hallway. Use ribbons or strings of different lengths to hang the arrangement from the pegs for an easy and creative change of scenery.

Paper Towel Tubes

Wrap your lights around a paper towel tube to store them for next year. They won't tangle up as easily!

Great tips! I am most definitely going to start using all of my flat soda for that! I always have some of that handy!
