Share with us your household tips here!1) Remove Stubborn Screw. Heat with a soldering iron for a few seconds first. 2) How To Remove Oil From Driveway. Cover with sand, let stand a few days, then sweep off. 3) Remove Labels From Bottles & Jars. Fill with hot water and then submerge in hot water, will just fall off. 4) Get Water Out Of Your Watch. Strap watch to light bulb, turn on for a few minutes. Water drops will form on crystals, open up and wipe off. 5) What To Do If You Oversalt Food. Drop a potato or two in it.

I will give just one tip. If you spill egg on the floor you can clean it by sprinkling salt over it and wiping it away. The odour also won't be there.

Thanks these tips are great. I appreciate any tips on house hold stuff. I don't have as many as you but here is one. This works on stains in carpet , even nail polish. dampen the carpet and then spray it with a cheap shaving foam, work the shaving foam into the carpet with a little brush, until stain is gone. then rinse out all the foam. If you have trouble getting rid of the foam. use cold water with a little vinegar added to it. all the best to you, and thanks again
