Many useful ideas that you'll want to try!
August 4, 2011
Reviewer:  Ike 

 - See all my reviews
I often see ads that promise you all sorts of money-saving
secrets . . . one, though, did catch my attention to the extent
that I even sent away for it: EXTRAORDINARY USES FOR
ORDINARY THINGS, published by Reader's Digest.

The top of the book promises "1,200 money-saving secrets,"
and while I don't know that I will be able to use all of them,
there were quite a lot that caught my attention--and that I might
even someday try.

For example, there was this one:
To keep ice cream smooth and free of those annoying, yucky
ice crystals that form once the container has been opened--rewrap
the container completely in plastic wrap before you return it
to the freezer. Or put the container inside a large seal-sealing
plastic bag.

USEFUL FOR EVERY DAY

Reviewer:  Krystal R

This book delivered as promised. There is much that I already knew, some I had forgotten, and a great deal that was knew to me and extremely helpful. I will keep this book close and refer to it often. I have passed along many helpful hints to my daughters.

Of course, IMHO anything the Reader's Digest does is done correctly.

fun and useful
June 27, 2011
Reviewer:  Andrea Da Silva 

 - See all my reviews
I never thought I would enjoy this book as much as I have been. It is 400 pages of fun facts with all those things you would find in your home and all the normal problems you would run in to. For example, onions remove rust stains from silverware, use bananas as a face mask, nail polish to remove warts, vinegar for carpet stains and to defrost windsheilds, beer and salt to make windows frosty for the Christmas holidays, use a vacuum nozzle with a pair of pantyhose to find that valuable object on the floor without sucking it up, etc.. I love this book! = )
