A Few Handy Hints

Handy hints for using petroleum jelly.

1. Loosen up outdoor lighting fixtures by putting a dab of PJ on the threads of the bulb before you screw it in. It won’t stick when it burns out and you can’t get it out. Hate that!

2.Deter a squirrel from getting your bird feed. Just coat the pole of the feeder with PJ. The squirrel won’t be able to get traction. This will have to be repeated from time to time.

3. Water marks on furniture will disappear if you dab PJ on the spot and let it sit for 24 hours. Then wipe off the excess and polish as usual.
