Helpful tips from “MacGyver Moms” Like You

by SomeGirl on February 11, 2010 · 1 comment

Last night my husband and I were watching a DVD from the local Family video when it started skipping like crazy! I remembered hearing a tip about scratched DVDs so I looked it up and, believe it or not, here’s the link I found… MacGyver Tip: Smooth a scratched DVD with Pledge. Now, I’m not surprised by the Pledge, but rather that the link I found followed my CUTE, Healthy Valentine’s Treat (MacGyver Mom) post… it got me thinking… I wonder how many “MacGyver Mom” tips we can come up with? What are your best “in a pinch” suggestions? I’d love to hear them and post them on the site! Put them in a comment below or e-mail me at somegirlswebsite[at]gmail.com.

BTW, the DVD stopped skipping after spraying it with Pledge and wiping it with a cloth used to clean glasses… Awesome tip!

Here’s the beginning of our MacGyver Mom Helpful Tips List:

1. In a pinch for a cookie cutter? Cut 1″ ring out of a soda can, bend into desired shape, fold top of ring down so as not to cut fingers.

2. Skipping DVD? Spray with with Pledge and gently wipe with a cloth used to clean glasses.

3. Smooth and exfoliate face by adding baking soda to lotion and gently scrub, rinse and pat dry. (Heidi, TX)

4. Lost the back to your earring? Break off a piece of eraser and press onto the back of your post.

5. Dollar store spray bottles make a much better squirt gun type toy in the summer. They fill easier, and last a LOT longer on each fill up. (Michelle, TX)

So, what are your favorite MacGyver Mom tips? Or your best MacGyver Mom moments?  I’d LOVE to hear from YOU!

Well, I’m sure I have a lot of these, but I sure can’t think of any right now! Best I can do at the moment is to say that those dollar store spray bottles make a much better squirt gun type toy in the summer. They fill easier, and last a LOT longer on each fill up.
