If you hit a skunk and have a hot date later that night, you should wrap a sprig or two of fresh Rosemary in brown paper and place that in a pan and light the paper. The Rosemary needs to be fresh so it will not burn, but will smoke like the dickens. Set the pan in the closed car for an hour or two and then air it out. It should be skunk smell free and only slightly smokey for your date!
If your car battery is corroded, sprinkel generously with baking soda and add a few drops of water. If you don’t have baking soda handy, try a coke. That stuff will eat through anything!
To get up candel wax that you’ve dripped into your carpet, use an iron on about cotton setting and a paper towel. Place the towel directly over the wax and iron it. Be careful to keep the iron moving so as not to set the paper towel on fire. The towel will absorb the wax as it melts.
Feel free to add your own hints.
