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.Did you know about salt:
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:
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.
I know some "village idiot's" good info to pass along, Thanks.
