20. Goodbye Snag
Even just one little snag in a sweater can keep it from ever leaving the hanger, but don’t be so sad just yet. Use a crochet hook to pull the snag through to the other side (yeah, it’s still there, but now on the inside where nobody can see it!). The bigger the knit, the easier this is. A fine knit sweater will require a tiny crochet hook. Go get the full instructions here.
21. Toothpaste Trick
Use a coaster, people!! I suppose that’s not always realistic, especially if you have kids like mine. In that case, there are a couple of ways to get rid of the water marks left behind from irresponsible coaster users.
White toothpaste seems to have the best results. Simply rub it on with a cloth for a few minutes until you see results. You can see the full instructions and other methods here.
For people who don’t know how to use a coaster…
22. Toothpaste CD Repair
I’m starting to think that CDs will soon be obsolete, but I still have hundreds of them in their original case. I need to upload those babies onto my computer!
Who knew you could repair minor scratches with toothpaste? First, wash the CD with mild soap and water, then rub the toothpaste on in a circular motion, let sit for a few minutes, and then rinse it off with cold water. Sounds weird, but it works!
Just in case you still own some of these…
