Did you know about salt:
Deter ants
Sprinkle salt in doorways, on window sills and anywhere else ants use to sneak into your house. Itís a sure way to keep them out!
Say goodbye to fleas
If your dogs have fleas, simply wash their doghouse and blankets in salt water. If youíre worried your dogs may have brought fleas into your house, simply sprinkle your carpets lightly with salt and then brush it in. Leave it for 12 hours and vacuum thoroughly.
Pick up a dropped egg
If you drop an egg on the kitchen floor, sprinkle salt on the mess and leave it there for 20 minutes. Youíll be able to wipe it right up.
Switching thoughts here:
Did you know:
Origin
The phrase "go pound salt" orginated in the early days of commercial salt mine operations in the US. There were a number of specific jobs performed by people who worked in the mine. The lowest paying and most menial job was pounding large rocks into smaller crystals that could be used for cooking and curing of meats. This job was usually given to those deemed less intelligent (the village idiot, if you will) or those who could find no other gainful employment.
Great post! I didn't know that, except for the flea part and I heard of using garlic too, but I use the vet flea stuff.
I know some "village idiot's" good info to pass along, Thanks.

~laughs~ Well is good to help out the village idiot. So indeed, you're welcome.

Say...you will interest in this: http://www.earthworkshealth.com/How-Diatomace...

I do not recommend putting it on your pet, seems to cause dander. Is very drying.
Stuff is excellent. I use it for various things as well as taking it myself.

To me, is better than salt. Putting salt down may be bad in the long run for pets, due to them licking themselves all the time. On the other hand, they can lick all the D.E. they want. Is really good for parasites.

Did you know...

Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) made sketches of a submarine and William Bourne, a British mathematician, drew plans for a submarine in 1578. But it was only in 1620 that Cornelius van Drebbel, a Dutch inventor, managed to build a submarine. He wrapped a wooden rowboat tightly in waterproofed leather and had air tubes with floats to the surface to provide oxygen. Of course, there were no engines yet, so the oars went through the hull at leather gaskets. He took the first trip with 12 oarsmen in the Thames River Ė staying submerged for 3 hours?

Did you know an ant never sleeps..

A rat can go longer without water than a camel..

Rats, rabbits and horses have no gag reflex..that's why you should never give a horse a whole apple, it has no way of dislodging it should it get stuck in its throat...slice the apple in quarters first.

The biggest thing a blue whale can swallow is a grapefruit.

Camel milk doesn't curdle

Female donkey milk is the most similar to human milk than any other.

Did you know in order to see a rainbow you have to have your back to the sun? Handy piece of info there..:)

Did you know:

The average human dream lasts only two to three seconds and the average person has at least seven dreams a night. People with higher IQs have more dreams.

Shoes are now available with a built-in GPS to help locate people with Alzheimer's or other dementia who have wandered away.

Once we reach the age of 35, we will start losing approximately 7,000 brain cells each dayócells that will never be replaced

Talking about hair now.

Did you know that each hair follicle contains enough genetic material to clone a human being?

Did you know that hair is very vulnerable when itís wet? Any pulling, combing or brushing can cause stretching or breaking. Shampoo gently, using the pads of your fingers (not your nails) to massage the formula into your scalp and then into a lather, without any vigorous scrubbing or rubbing.

Did you know that you should never brush wet hairóuse a wide-toothed comb or pick to separate tangles before styling. This helps protect hair from unnecessary damage or hair breakage.

Did you know that rinsing hair in fresh water or club soda after swimming in the ocean or pool can help keep it looking healthy?

Did you know that a small amount of leave-in conditioner will soften locks while you play volleyball or frolic in the waves?

I knew virtually none of the above...

Did you know...

In 1894, Lord Kelvin predicted that radio had no future; he also predicted that heavier-than-air flying machines were impossible.

~ahem~ Did you know:
Genetic research (especially behavioural genetics and epigenetic) is in its infancy, we dont have enough facts to confirm or reject the hypothesis that humans act-react the way they do because of how genes structured their psyche. Human psyche development and research, due to nature and-or nurture, is the key to solving ALL of our problems.
