    Some home remedies that you may find helpful. It appears to be older since there is a reference to those AOL CDs you used to get all the time. Instead of using them as a scarecrow however, I think they make excellent signaling mirrors.

    Thanks for sharing, Guit

    Thanks Guit for sharing. It's always good to find frugal ways of using commonly available economical ingredients to perform household and workshop tasks cheaper and arguably better than commercially available options. With the commercially available options we are often paying a premium for much the same ingredients plus the packaging and marketing.

    I used to use the silly AOHell CDs as targets at the range. ;)

    I like the "Emergency Heater" - a good way to put the old steel coffee cans to use!

    They are all good suggestions.

    They are all good suggestions, hints and tips...but I like the fire retardent's good for treating the woollen picnic blanket kept in the car...just in case one is caught in a forest fire (which are a prevalent hazard in the summer bushfire season in many areas down under), or as an aid to first aid.
