A tangled necklace chain usually comes across when you’re in a great hurry. Massage a dab of oil onto the tangled area, then use a straight pin to carefully pull apart the knot. Do the same to slip off a stuck ring (no pins need here though).
Also, peel off bandages easily. Avoid involuntary hair removal and extra agony by rubbing baby oil over and around the sticky parts of an adhesive bandage before pulling it off.
Dentals floss can easily replace the regular thread. Use it, for instance, to unstick a photograph. Slide a length of dental floss under the corner of a photo that’s stuck to an album page or another snapshot. Work the floss between the two surfaces to separate them without damaging the picture. Hang small and light paintings on the wall, tie your hair back when washing your face, cut a cheesecake and any other soft cheeses and string a holiday garland.

Use the cotton swabs to also polish otherwise inaccessible crevices of silverware and tea services.
Most of you keep medicine in the bathroom cabinet. Turn to antacid tablets if you want to remove, for instance, a stain form a vase’s bottom. Drop a tablet in a little water and let it sit for several minutes. Wipe and rinse. Do the same to clean a toilet. Toss in two dissolving antacid tablets, wait 20 minutes, then brush.
