I thought some of the comments were funny as heck and some just not true. I have always used WD-40 as a lubricant. I use it on squeeky door hinges, hinges and joints that don't move smoothly, and other things needing lubrication. I don't know where they got the idea it isn't a lubricant. It is to me.

DQ, actually WD-40 was origianlly developed as a water displacing solution to prevent rust and corrosion. It got the name wd-40 because is was the 40th water displacing formula that they developed that actually worked.

Oh, and my kitchen tip: When you bring home fresh herbs, snip off the bottoms of the stems, place then in a small glass of water, cover with a zip-top back and place in the refrigerator. They will last much longer this way.

DAILY TIP

Here is a tip for those of you that like Swede ( Swedish turnip, yellow turnip )
Place the whole swede in a microwave and cook on full power for 10-15 minutes depending on the size of the swede. Let it cool before peeling. Slice or mash to serve.
It cooked beautifully and there was no chopping up to do.
I tried 2 medium carrots the same way and cooked them for 7 minutes on full power at 650 W.
The result was very good and hussle free.

Yakuta, when I lived in Hawaii, red soil stains were the bane of my existence. CLR was the only answer to the problem. We have very hard water here, and for the most part treat it with monthly Culligan treatments. But I still have to fill a sink with bleach and water (for regular mildewy stuff) once a month, and CLR every other month to get rid of mineral deposits.

To remove ink color from cloths, first rub it with lemon and keep it 15 min then wash it with detergent.

This is true! And it works really well if you've burned something or set your stove on fire. A couple of bowls of vinegar will absorb all the "burnt" smell by the next morning.

Lemon juice or white vinegar work great for streak-free glass cleaning. Of course you have to use newsprint to wipe it off for best results.
