OMG I thought my always thought my Nanny was joking when she said she used beer on her hair.

The crux said...

How did you learn all this? Incidentally, I LOVE your sunset photos.

Janet said...

hahahah you mean all those beer showers I had at concerts and whatnot were actually GOOD for me? Who knew!

gem said...

If Preparation H works for puffy eyes, Lori, I'll send you my firstborn child.

MamaLee said...

Great list! I love using home remedies for things. I used to put mayo on my hair when I was a teen for the conditioning, but it smells SO bad! YUCK! :(

Teena said...

I've been rinsing my hair in beer for years. Thanks for validating that I'm not crazy :)

Thanks for stopping by mine :)

Nicole said...

Lori those are great tips!I also write for families.com on Frugal Living and some of these very tips have been discussed. Though I will admit a few were new to me (like the WD40 and the arthritis) LOL

Anyway, I loved the list and your blog is great! Thanks for visiting me!

TeaMouse said...

My daughter read in a magazine that mayonaise conditions the hair and now she wants to try it out.

I think I'll take your word on the Preparation H thing.

Suprina said...

I will have to try some of these...
I have tried the peanut butter and coffee filter and it didn't work.

mousepie@gmail.com said...

That's a very useful list.

Ann Bernard said...

Ed stole my thunder about the peanut butter...

I had NEVER heard about the beer for my hair. It won't hurt to try.

Great list, thank you.

Terra said...

katherine. said...

wd-40...really?

Shelley Munro said...

Wow, what great tips. I'm going to have to try the sugar on a burnt tongue.

Robin said...

Definitely filing the sugar on burnt tongue one away for future use...

Christine d'Abo said...

I've heard about the sugar on the tongue and about the peanut butter for CDs, but the others were new. Great list!

impworks said...

I prefer pineapple juice as a meat tenderiser but bee stings sound interesting

Tink said...

My hubby uses WD40 for a lot of things, but I didn't know this use! great tips!
Thanks for visiting my geography TT.

Kristi K. said...

I used to be allergic to bees as a child, and my great aunt (a nurse) suggested that my grandma (who raised me) try the meat tenderizer. It worked like a charm!

Also, the puffy eye thing is true and the PH also works for those annoying blemishes that emerge just when you least expect it. ;)

This is a great list! Thank you for taking time to share it!

Happy Thursday!

You missed the best home remedy of all..

Choking on ice? Never panic! Just drink boiling water!

Nancy said...

Really peanut butter and DVD's?

I knew the mayo one from experience and not condtioning my hair.... ;)

Yoshi said...

wow! that's some serious remedies I've never heard of!

Although the beer...seems almost a waste. :P

But I never would have guessed the peanut butter...is that true?

Vixen said...

Those are all great. I printed them out. but I have to say for second when I read meat tenderizer I thought of the actual tool. And I thougt to myself, beat my bee sting with a meat tenderizer? That would make me forget the sting for sure!

FindingYourPath said...

Bud will also condition the body... :)

Thanks for the read Mitch

J. Lynne said...

I remember way back when, we used to use flat beer as a rinse to give body and shine to our hair. You can also use a lemon juice rinse to add natural blonde highlights and shine to your hair plus it will get a kitten to stop chewing on your hair.

Happy TT!

Candy Minx said...

Amy said...

Good TT!!

I have to tell you, your son Steven is adorable!!! =)

Lori's Light Extemporanea said...

Hey, who knew about Pam drying nail polish...that's a new one on me.

Don't forget using peanut butter to get gum out of hair (or lotion to break up gum that's stuck to skin, if you don't happen to have any pb.)

Happy TT, a day late.
