Some great tips

So, I’m still a Facebooker, I recently liked a page that posted some really awesome tips I don’t think I would have ever thought of on my own. Some of my faves are listed here:
    Overhaul your linen cupboard, store bed linen sets inside one of their own pillowcases and there will be no more hunting through piles for a match.
Attach a Velcro strip to the wall to store soft toys
Make an instant cupcake carrier by cutting crosses into a box lid.
Turn your muffin pan upside down, bake cookie-dough over the top and voila, you have cookie bowls for fruit or ice-cream
Create a window-box veggie patch using guttering
Clean out a small tin with a lid.
Take a clean piece of cloth or a small piece of dish sponge able to fit into the container. Saturate it with one of the following oils (after it has been diluted appropriately):
Lavender oil – lavender is considered to be particularly effective against flies
Citronella oil (dilute with water first)
Eucalyptus oil (dilute with water first)
Pennyroyal oil (dilute with water first)
Peppermint oil (dilute with water first; likely more effective against mosquitoes but also considered to work against horse-flies.
Lemongrass oil (dilute with water first)
Place the cloth in the tin and shut the lid. Allow to sit for 24 hours.

Use. Whenever you need to use the tin, remove the lid and place on the entertaining table. Make as many as you wish to put around the entertaining area to deter flies

Halloween Party Idea:
Fill a powder-free latex glove with water or cranberry juice and freeze it. Most definitely adds to a creepy factor to your punch
