    I know these work:

    Before you head to the drugstore for a high-priced inhaler filled with mysterious chemicals, try chewing on a couple of curiously strong Altoids peppermints. They’ll clear up your stuffed nose.

    Cleaning liquid that doubles as bug killer . If menacing bees, wasps, hornets, or yellow jackets get in your home and you can’t find the insecticide, try a spray of Formula 409. Insects drop to the ground instantly.

    Balm for broken blisters… To disinfect a broken blister, dab on a few drops of Listerine. A powerful antiseptic. (burns like the dickens, but Dr. says it is true)

    Quaker Oats for fast pain relief… It’s not for breakfast any more! Mix 2 cups of Quaker Oats and 1 cup of water in a bowl and warm in the microwave for 1 minute, cool slightly, and apply the mixture to your hands for soothing relief from arthritis pain. (you can use the generic bulk oatmeal if you aren’t gonna eat it and save the Quaker for meals!!)
