Quips and Quotes
"We do not earn or merit anything by taking refuge in God. Hiding in something makes no contribution to the hiding place. All it does is show that we regard ourselves as helpless and the hiding place as a place of rescue." John Piper

Tidy Tip Tuesday - Handy Uses for Duct Tape

If you are wondering why there have been so few posts this past week, it is due to the fact that I have been ill. For the first time since last Monday I have my voice back. I didn't really loose it, but over the past week I have been a bass, a high soprano and a croaky frog. Today my voice is back although the volume is somewhat diminished, which I am sure Robert is loving.

Anyway, here are some nifty uses for duct tape for today's tidy tip post:

Some Out-of-the-Ordinary Uses for Duct Tape

Remove lint on clothing
To remove lint from clothing wrap your hand with a length of duct tape, sticky side out. Then roll the sticky tape against your clothing in a rocking motion until lint has been picked up.

Reseal bags of chips
To keep a half-finished bag fresh, fold up the top over and seal it tight with a piece of duct tape, turning one corner under to make a grip to remove tape to open again. After opening the bag again, reseal with the tape.

Keep a secret spare car key

To prevent getting locked out of your car, affix an extra key to the undercarriage with duct tape.

Hang Christmas lights
Use duct tape to hang your lights and the removal job will be much easier. Tear duct tape into thin strips. At intervals, wrap strips around the wire and then tape the strand to the gutter or wherever you hang your lights.

Replace a shower curtain grommet
To repair a torn grommet, first make sure that the curtain is dry. Then cut a rectangular piece and fold it from front to back over the torn hole. Carefully slit the tape with a scissor, and push the shower curtain ring back in place.

I'd love to hear from you!
