comment How to jump start a car without another car
I found as a poor student that frequent bump starting caused the starting motor to wear out.

comment How can I overcome using the snooze function of my alarm clock?
I actually put my (loud!) alarm clock in the kitchen. That means I have to go all the way across the house to turn it off, by the time I get there I'm usually a bit more awake.

comment How to remove creases from my shirts without ironing?
If I'm wearing the shirt under a jacket or sweater I only iron the part of the shirt you will be able to see, such as the collar, cuffs, and front. That cuts the ironing down a lot.

comment How to quickly peel a bag of potatoes
I used to work in a UK Fish and Chip shop in the 80s, and we had an enormous spinning barrel that was rough inside, and sprayed water into the barrel. It would remove the skins of pounds of potatoes in seconds.

comment How to remove lice
"Head lice very rarely fall from the head. They require blood to survive. Head lice feed three to four times a day and without blood, will dehydrate in six hours in a dry climate and 24 hours in a humid climate. An egg requires warmth to hatch and is the reason why they are laid close to the scalp. The further away from the scalp, the less likely they are to survive." health.vic.gov.au/headlice/faq.htm
