“Put your onion in the freezer for 10 minutes before chopping it. It freezes the juices just enough to slow down the process of it turning in to a gas, giving you a few minutes to chop the onion without tears. I learnt this tip from a kid’s science show years ago and I haven’t had to deal with onion tears since. So many people don’t believe me, and then are genuinely surprised when it works.” — Lost_in_the_Library

“Vinegar in a plastic bag with rubber band tied around any faucet will make the faucet like-new. I’m talking decade old rust and stuff gone…and water flows like the first day.” — Aakwanderer

“The cheapest, most effective, and safest insecticide against roaches (especially those huge ‘water bug’ roaches that we have in the South) is a spray bottle of mostly water with just a little liquid dish soap in it. Shake the bottle & get the water a little foamy, then spray the roaches. They will run, scrabble, and attempt escape, of course, but they will die. The soap film suffocates them faster than any chemicals will. A friend told me about this, & I thought she was nuts, but I tried it & it works amazingly well. Plus it’s very easy to clean up and safe around food (not that you want to spray soapy water ON your food).” — SnooPickles3213

“If you’ve got a splinter below your skin surface, wrap a banana peel around it. Wet side against your skin. It will draw the splinter out most of the time. I don’t know how but it fricken works. Banana voodoo. Banavoodoo. Banadoo?” — Rusty_is_a_good_boy
