Just a couple of quick household hints:
When making homemade ice cream: Stir the left overs (if any) to keep it softer for use later. I start by stirring every hour. After about 3 hours, I shorten it to every half hour until bed time.
In order to use up lotion after it won’t pump any more, I melt it in the microwave for a few seconds then pour into a partially empty container. It may not seem like much, but over the years it adds up.
