Small tricks for difficult tasks

When you break a glass, use a cotton ball to wipe up all  the slivers and tiny shards.  The fibers will catch any tiny pieces you can't see.
Ever try to get a sticky label off of something.  Put a little bit of peanut butter on it and let it sit so it can soften the adhesive and then wipe clean.
Dingy artificial flowers can be cleaned by putting them in a plastic bag with a few teaspoons of salt.  Shake the bag until the salt absorbs the dust.  If the salt sticks, place a hose over the end of a vacuum and vacuum the flowers clean.
Use a coffee filter to fix scuffed shoes.  It is lint free, easy to hold and disposable.  Coffe filters are also great for cleaning mirrors and windows.
To prevent containers from tomato based stains, mist with nonstick cooking spray before filling them.
Make your jewelry shine by placing it in an old pair of panty hose.  Place it in the top rack of your dishwasher and wash it out.
