Hi Everyone,

Below is a list of tips on alternate uses of Coke and Bounce I received
yesterday on a scrollsaw LIST I belong to and thought it might be of
interest to some.  The link to histology is the use of Bounce and its
anti-static properties and possible applications in section cutting.


Look what Bounce and Coca Cola can do.  Imagine that...
> BOUNCE....the stuff you use in your dryer:
> Repels mosquitoes.  Tie a sheet of Bounce through a belt loop
> when outdoors during mosquito season.
> Eliminates static electricity from your television screen.  Since
> Bounce is designed to help eliminate static cling, wipe your
> television screen with a used sheet of Bounce to keep dust
> from resettling.
> Dissolves soap scum from shower doors.  Clean with a used
> sheet of Bounce.
> Freshens the air in your home.  Place an individual sheet of
> Bounce in a drawer or hang one in the closet.
> Prevents thread from tangling.  Run a threaded needle through a
> sheet of Bounce to eliminate the static cling on the thread before
> sewing.
> Eliminates static cling from pantyhose.  Rub a damp, used sheet
> of Bounce over the hose.
> Prevents musty suitcases.  Place an individual sheet of Bounce
> inside empty luggage before storing.
> Freshens the air in your car.  Place a sheet of Bounce under the
> front seat.
> Cleans baked-on food from a cooking pan.  Put a sheet in the
> pan, fill with water, let sit overnight, and sponge clean. The
> antistatic agents apparently weaken the bond between the food
> and the pan while the fabric softening agents soften the baked-on
> food.
> Eliminates odors in wastebaskets.  Place a sheet of Bounce at
> the bottom of the wastebasket.
> Collects cat hair. Rubbing the area with a sheet of Bounce will
> magnetically attract all the loose hairs.
> Eliminates static electricity from venetian blinds.  Wipe the blinds
> with a sheet of Bounce to prevent dust from resettling.
> Wipes up sawdust from drilling or sand papering.  A used sheet
> of Bounce will collect sawdust like a tack cloth.
> Eliminates odors in dirty laundry.  Place an individual sheet of
> Bounce at the bottom of a laundry bag or hamper.
> Deodorizes shoes or sneakers.  Place a sheet of Bounce in your
> shoes or sneakers overnight so they'll smell great in the morning.
> And now, Coca-Cola:
> To clean a toilet: Pour a can of Coca-Cola into the toilet bowl. Let
> the  "real thing" sit for one hour, then flush clean. The citric acid
> in Coke removes stains from vitreous China.
> To remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers: Rub the bumper
> with a crumpled-up piece of Reynolds Wrap aluminum foil dipped in
> Coca-Cola.  Also good for rusty clock parts.
> To clean corrosion from car battery terminals: Pour a can of Coca-
> Cola over the terminals to bubble away the corrosion.
> To loosen a rusted bolt:  Applying a cloth soaked in Coca-Cola to
> the rusted bolt for several minutes.
> (Of course, the sticky sugary stuff has to be rinsed off...)
> To bake a moist ham: Empty a can of Coca-Cola into the baking
> pan; wrap the ham in aluminum foil, and bake. Thirty minutes
> before the ham is finished, remove the foil, allowing the drippings
> to mix with the Coke for a sumptuous brown gravy.
> To remove grease from clothes: Empty a can of Coke into a load
> of greasy clothes, add detergent, and run through a regular cycle.
> The Coca-Cola will help loosen grease Stains.
