  1. These tips really save our lives! thanks for sharing! something that is really cool to make the socks invisible and make up the stretch marks and cellulite and apply a hairspray spray! It is perfect!

  2. I love your ideas for so many different things!
    On your stain removal post you say to use baking soda & water paste on perspiration stains. Within that post it says to leave it on the stain no more than ten minutes yet also says to leave it on an hour.
    Please let me know which one is correct.
    Thank you very much!
    Take care,
