Over the past few weeks I have posted some alternative home remedies to try when you don't have the right item in your house for what you need. Here are a few more....
16. Wet Dog Odor - Nothing smells worse than a wet dog, and a wet dog in the house is really yuckky. The next time the smelly wet dog comes in the house, quickly wipe him down with dryer sheets. He will smell soooo good.
17. Urinary Tract Infection - Alka-Seltzer comes to the rescue here. This is the plain old Alka-Seltzer, NOT Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold Medicine, which contains aspirin and other things you don't need. Simply dissolve two tablets in a glass of water and drink as soon as your symptoms begin. The Alka-Seltzer starts working immediately to knock out the infection.
18. Rust Stain - Coca Cola gets the job done here. Soak an abrasive sponge with Coke and scrub the stain. The acid in the Coke dissolves the rust stain.
19. Stuffy nose - Ever had a "Curiously Strong" Altoids peppermint? Try a couple with a stuffy nose and your nose will be clear before you know it.
Hopefully some of these solutions will come in handy when you need them!
