What will this kool aid do to the poor kids pipes? Maybe it might embalm them from the inside so they last longer. :eek:

Can't wait to send the hubby out with maxi pads stuck to his knees and hands to weed the garden and wash the windows, I'll put one in his hat too, cuz I know he'll be sweating up a storm!!:D Great tips, thanx! Got a few more: 1. Hairspray also will remove adhesive gunk 2. Ink on the walls--Spray n' Wash stain stick 3. Clean the bathroom mirror with shaving cream and it will stay fog free for quite some time 4. Coke will also clean your toilet :)

Ah damn. I need tips to get crayon off a wooden door and chalk off the walls. :( Guess one thing is true, that I didn't follow. Do not turn your back when there is a 2 yr old up and about. :(

Hey there, Crayon is made from wax so try the one about putting kitchen paper over the wax and ironing it. As for the chalk, hell just a sponge and some water sound get that out!;)

Crayon is made from a different kind of wax, then that of candles. The iron trick doesn't work. It was my first attempt, but I didn't do it long since the door is solid wood. Don't want to leave an iron mark on the door. The chalk is pink. Water will make is smear and leave a nasty mark. Already did that too. :(
