Default home remedies

Thought I'd start a thread for home fixes or products that work for things they weren't intended for. The poison ivy-bleach thing kind of got me thinking and here are a couple of things I have found that work well around the house.
1. k&n air filter cleaner works awesome at cleaning the lint catcher in the dryer when it starts to get clogged with the real small particles that don't just wipe off.
2. Sno bol in the spray bottle eats rust off metal especially chrome really well. But it has to be the one in the spray bottle.
3. I personally have not tried this but have been told by two different sources that soaking your feet in your own urine will cure athletes foot
Please add if there are any sure-fire home remedies worth telling about.

Thin sliced onions layered with sugar in an air tight container yields a syrup helpful in reducing coughs.

if your dishwasher leaves your glasses with a white powder like film, do this

take a short glass, or dish, put in dishwasher right side up, add 1/2-1 cup of vinegar,

do this and your glass will be looking great

vinegar is also great to add to a bucket of water to wash your windows

Put garlic cloves in the microwave for 10ish seconds and they peel a lot easier.

Organic, raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar (must contain 'mother') for food poisoning, stomach flu, diarrhea, beer shits and acid reflux.

Great after a meal at Big E's Sports Grill in Midland !

the windex one reminded me of one my mom taught me. Instead of a cloth use newspaper to wipe windows after you spray windex and they will be streak free it works great especially if you crumple the paper first.

Soaking the affected body part in grape Koolaid will cure poison ivy.

I agree. Only problem:

clean windows means dirty, ink-stained fingers.

That's just dumb. Why wouldn't you just use vinegar and water and a cloth like great grandma did?
