Works for me Wednesday

A few of my favorite household tips:

Easy Deviled Eggs 
Put cooked egg yolks in a zip lock bag. Seal; mash till they are all broken up.
 Add remainder of ingredients, reseal, keep mashing it up mixing
thoroughly, cut the tip of the baggy; squeeze mixture into egg.
Just throw bag away when done - Easy clean up.

Newspaper weeds away
Start putting torn newspaper in your plants, work the nutrients in your soil. Wet newspapers, put layers around the plants, overlapping as you go; cover with mulch and forget about weeds. Weeds will get through some gardening plastic; they will not get through wet newspapers. 

Broken Glass 
Use a wet cotton ball or Q-tip to pick up the small shards of glass you can't see

Get Rid of Ants 
Put small piles of cornmeal where you see ants. They eat it, take it 'home,'
can't digest it so it kills them. It may take a week or so, especially if it rains, but it works and you don't have the worry about pets or small children being harmed!

And that's What Works for Me!
