Some of those velcro ideas will come in handy especially the one about keeping cords where you want them.

My car needs a vinegar rinse. It has so much street salt on it. We took it through the car wash last year when it was cold and came out with a sheet of ice.

Do you think that salt/ice would work on any beverage to chill it fast?

You use salt and ice to make ice cream, so it probably would.

I'm a little confused about this one...

3. Keep chicken or turkey moist. Rub salt in the cavity of the bird before cooking.

I thought salt drew moisture out...

Neat page by the way.

I use velcro to keep the seat belt off my neck. I'm short and the seat belt is always chafing my neck so what I do is wrap the velcro around where the shoulder and lap belt meet and it lifts the shoulder belt off my neck.
