13 tips I have only tried a few courtesy of baba mail - always like to share and learn

Make pimples go away with the ibuprofen gel. Just cut off the head of the jelly pill, and use as acne cream.  Ibuprofen is an anti-inflammatory agent and the alcohol in the liquid opens the pores of your skin so it enters more quickly. In Japan they actually use it as acne medicine in the form of an ointment.

Did you know that you can make cake out of ice cream? Mix two cups of ice cream in any flavor with a cup and a half of self-rising flour. Mix until dough is formed and bake in a rectangle baking pan in 180 degrees until it browns. Lick to see if it's good, and believe me, it will be! Make sure the self-rising dough you pick isn't too salty.
Losing focus? Brush your teeth. If you feel like you need a break and your eyes are glazing over, wash your face and brush your teeth. That feeling of cleanliness will reawaken you quite effectively.   I'm always teaching kids re focus techniques
pillows flat - lay in sun for awhile (I'm assuming depends on what made of ))
These toilet roll holders can save you a lot of room in the pantry.
Never worry about your fly coming down again. Hook a ring from your key holder to your fly and hook it over the button when you tie up.
Taking out a blister  baking soda paste?? Simple solution to digging out a splinter. If you have a splinter or chip, wet a plaster and put a little drinking soda on it. The splinter will immediately poke its head out.
Need extra counter space-  cutting board in a drawer I can do this

This one most of us have tried   velcro to hold rugs on ends
level a computer with an egg carton???HMNN Keep your laptop from overheating on the cheap. Just put them on egg cartons, these will disperse the hot air effectively and keep it ventilated without it being too high up. You can paint the forward row for extra fun points.
Wash veggies  all at once in  dish washer- I juice a lot of veggies this would be great for me but I have no dishwasher
 Fun with the ol' laser pointer - Take out the lens of the laser pointer, use a headpin to attach it to your smartphone camera and voila! You have a zoom lense.

I am grateful for little progresses along the way
