A few more Old fashioned home remedies!

To keep goggles and glasses from fogging, coat with Colgate .

Wine stains, pour Morton salt on stain and watch it absorb into the salt.

Colgate tooth paste is also good for stains on clothes .

Try Karo Syrup on Grass stains.

Grease Stains on driveways can be removed with Coca Cola overnight. (These next two hit close to home Coke is my coffee in the mornings!)

Coca Cola is also good for corrosion from car batteries or other rust stains.

To remove a wax stain take a paper towel and iron it over the stain and it will absorb into the towel.

Old Fashioned Remedies!

Here are a couple of recipes I found in a very old cook book I found at the thrift store. I don't know about the Banana Homemade Foot Cream Recipe, but as many times I have to wash my hands at work(doctors office), this might be worthwhile to try, don't think I own a pair of white gloves.
I could see myself trying the Apple Tart soap recipe. Well they are still fun to read. If you know of any old home remedies leave a comment. Would love to hear them!

Banana Homemade Foot Cream Recipe

Dry hands and feet will become smooth and soft overnight if you mix:
Bananas
Honey
Lemon juice
Natural margarine

Smear on hands and wear white gloves to bed. Wash off in the morning. For dry feet, smear the mixture on and wear heavy socks to bed, wash off in the morning. (Note recipe did not list the amounts).

4 oz. Clear, Unscented Glycerine Soap
1 Tablespoon Liquid Soap
1 teaspoon Liquid Glycerine
