Natural Outdoor Tips
When eating outdoors, keep a tall bottle on or near the table. Put a little water and sugar in the bottle. Flies will go straight in for the sweet stuff, but they are unable to fly straight up so they won't get back out.
Keep Kids Safe
Paint a line across the driveway to serve as a reminder to young children as to where they must stop to not go into the road. They concentrate so much on playing so they need a bright visual reminder. For an even better reminder for the younger children, try a retractable driveway guard.
Repair a Garden Hose
There is a quick, easy way to repair that punctured garden hose. Stick a wooden toothpick into the hole and snap off the extra. Wrap around the hose with waterproof tape, over the filled hole. When you use the hose, the water will make the wooden toothpick swell to fill the hole tightly.
When you need to be found, house numbers need to be visible from the street. Help the police, firemen, out-of-town visitors, or the pizza delivery man find you quickly by painting your numbers or by replacing them when they are faded.
Fish can be scared away from your baited hook because of your human scent.
Spread one or two drops of anise essential oil onto
your hands before handling the bait or hook to hide the human presence.
