Wednesday Tip Day---Many uses of Flour!

I came across these great tips recently:


1-Clean your playing cards.  Put your cards in a plastic bag with 1/2c flour and shake for about 1 minute.  Remove the cards and shuffle several times over the sink to remove any flour residue.

2- Unstick a Lid.  Dip the edge of a plastic lid that's too sticky into flour to prevent future sticking.

3- Clean Heavy, White Fabrics.  Spot-clean heavier white fabrics by rubbing flour into the dirt and then brushing to clean.

4- Mix Up Some Glue.  Make up craft glue for projects by mixing 1 part flour with 3 parts water.  Boil, stirring, until it becomes paste.  Make certain to store in the fridge.

5- Make play-dough.  Knead together 1c water, 3c flour and 1tsp vegetable oil.  Add color if desired.  Store in the fridge wrapped in plastic and moisten as necessary.
