I'm not sure if Martha's ever suggested any of these. ;) [Mar. 25th, 2008|11:44 am]

Your montly 5 household remedies. :) As always, please consult a Doctor before doing anything that may be hazardous to your health. I'd hate to be the cause of your downfall.

;)

16. Heinz vinegar to heal bruises... Soak a cotton ball in white vinegar and apply it to the bruise for 1 hour. The vinegar reduces the blueness and speeds up the healing process.

17. Kill fleas instantly. Dawn dish washing liquid does the trick. Add a few drops to your dog's bath and shampoo the animal thoroughly. Rinse well to avoid skin irritations. Goodbye fleas.

18. Rainy day cure for dog odor... Next time your dog comes in from the rain, simply wipe down the animal with Bounce or any dryer sheet, instantly making your dog smell springtime fresh.

19. Eliminate ear mites... All it takes is a few drops of Wesson corn oil in your cat's ear. Massage it in, then clean with a cotton ball. Repeat daily for 3 days. The oil soothes the cat's skin, smothers the mites, and accelerates healing.

20. Vaseline cure for hair balls..... To prevent troublesome hair balls, apply a dollop of Vaseline petroleum jelly to your cat's nose. The cat will lick off the jelly, lubricating any hair in its stomach so it can pass easily through the digestive system.

my mom uses bounce for EVERY odor problem. I have put them under my car seats and in other hidden places in my car, and it does help that very much!

Mine generally is too - particularly if I'm working on a show, since I end up eating dinner in it half the time. Additionally, there is a leak somewhere on the passenger's side, so if anything falls on the floor or under the seat on that side, it gets SOAKED. It is due for a shampooing the first warm day this year!

LOL, he's the reason it's so disgusting. Or at least 70% of the reason.

20, mayonaise is also good for hair balls and tastes better.

I've used Dawn for fleas. My poor puppy was COVERED in them when I first got her and I bathed her in Dawn. More than a few drops though :) See the Dawn suffocates the fleas and they die. Or so I suspect. Anyway it works.

As far as the Vaseline.. I'd check with a vet first. I think that is a for external use only product.

Glad to know the dawn works. :)

And yeah, for sure. The guy who invented it, I believ,e used to eat a tablespoon a day? I posted a fact about it years ago, I thought it was fascinating though. lol

Someone suggested to a friend of mine once to drink 1 1/2 cups of olive oil to ehhum.. cleanse their colon. I don't think my friend ever tried it, though. I don't blame her, I love evoo on my pasta, but not so much stand a lone.

I think in extremely small doses, like what you'd put on a nose it is. I remember reading a fact and I believe posting it.. years ago on this journal, about I believe it was the inventor? He used to eat a tablespoon of it a day. lol. So weird.

I really do believe the vinegar thing. Yam helps too.
And dryer sheets...I love those things. They cure everything from musty hair (hair of all kinds, no matter how clean, will smell musty if caught in the rain) to static electricity caused by wearing a hat. I have a dryer sheet in all my hats, and it helps so much.
And vets use Dawn liquid to help cut down on fleas. Fleas and soap hate each other.

I wouldn't try the vaseline as a cure for hair balls. I would think the cat would get sick. They actually make anti-hair ball medicines that are safe for the cats. Though the best way to prevent them is to brush your cat with a flee comb every day.

I think the amount of it you would put on a nose wouldn't do any damage.

Witch hazel works great on bruises, too. Especially if they are fresh -- they'll go from pink to yellow, do not pass blue, do not collect $200. Ok, I know that was bad, but the witch hazel does work!
