    I love the ants tip. I’ve had them coming into my kitchen for weeks. We live in an old log house and they march up the outside wall and find their way. I’ve yet to find where they’re coming in. Maybe a chalk line round the house. lol. Much cheaper than ant traps. Great tip. I’ll be back for more.

    Wow. I’m impressed.
    In ever knew that Alka Seltzer could be so helpful.
    That’s amazing.

    Love the first one, too, about the envelope. I was just wondering that the other day.
    Thanks for sharing =]
    From now on, I can be helpful when someone comes and complains to me about a mosquito bite.
    The simplest solutions are often the hardest to find.
