58. Exfoliate skin by massaging handfuls of epsom salt over wet skin, starting with your feet and continuing up toward the face. Have a bath to rinse.
59. Remove excess oil from hair by adding 9 tablespoons of epsom salt to ½ cup of oily-hair shampoo. Apply one tablespoon of the liquid to your hair when it is dry; rinse with cold water. Next, pour lemon juice or organic apple cider vinegar through the hair, leave on for five to 10 minutes, and then rinse.
60. Remove a splinter by soaking it in epsom salt.
61. Keep paint brushes and rollers from drying out by placing them in bags and tying them or wrapping them with rubber bands to keep air out. The tools will stay moist and protected for a day or so.
62. Bulk up curtain valances by stuffing plastic grocery bags in the valances for a resilient pouf. The bags also can be used to stuff crafts or pillows.
63. Treat chapped hands by rubbing them with a thick layer of petroleum jelly and placing them in a plastic bag for 15 minutes to half an hour.
64. Soak in a milk-and-honey bath to soften skin. Add about 1⁄3 cup of honey to 2¼ cups of milk. Mix thoroughly. You can even add a few drops of essential oil to give your bath additional scent.
65. Treat minor skin abrasions and wounds with honey's antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. Apply a small amount twice daily to a wound or burn to speed healing.
66. Nurse a hangover by spooning a few tablespoons of honey on toast for breakfast. The fructose speeds up the metabolism of alcohol.

67. Organize jewelry, small nuts and bolts, and buttons in easy-to-stack trays.
68. Get rid of chlorine-green hair with a ketchup shampoo. Massage ketchup generously into your hair and leave it for 15 minutes, and then wash it out, using baby shampoo.
69. To relieve a sore throat, cut a lemon in half, and skewer one half over a medium flame on a gas stove or an electric burner, set on high, and roast until the peel turns golden-brown. Let cool slightly, then mix the juice with 1 teaspoon of honey.
70. Whiten fingernails by rubbing a wedge of lemon on the surface of your nails. 71. Remove soft cheese or other sticky foods from a grater. Rub both sides of the grater with the pulp side of a cut lemon.
72. Create blond highlights by adding ¼ cup lemon juice to ¾ cup water and rinse your hair with the mixture. Sit in the sun until your hair dries. Lemon juice is a natural bleach.
73. Condition your hair by massaging it into your hair. Cover your head with a shower cap, wait a few minutes, and shampoo.
74 Remove bumper stickers by rubbing it over the entire sticker. Let it sit for several minutes and wipe it off.
