Gardening Tips, Household Tips

** If you have weeds growing in the cracks of your driveway or sidewalk, pour distilled white vinegar on the weeds and within a few days they will shrivel up and die. Another option to getting rid of weeds is to go out after a rain and pull them up while the ground is still wet. Although neither of these options will get rid of weeds for good, they are safe, non-toxic alternatives to weed killers.

** Freeze leftover coffee in ice cube trays. You can add the coffee cubes to iced coffee recipes in place of ice cubes.  

** The next time you boil eggs, be sure to save the water and feed it to your indoor and outdoor plants.  And while you are at it, after you've peeled the eggs, add some of the crumbled up egg shells to the dirt of your plants.

** You can also use the water from boiling pasta or potatoes to water your plants. Be sure to let the water cool before adding to dirt around plants.

** If your favorite flower vase is hard to clean because of its shape, pour distilled white vinegar in it and let it sit overnight. Swish it around the next day and it should be nice and clean. You can do the same thing with dish soap and water.
