    the one about the ink and milk. i could be mistaken but it looks like you used a ballpoint pen which uses a special quick drying ink, where as 100 years ago it would have been more common for people to use fountain pens.that might make all the difference because the ink doesnt dry instantly. if i'm not mistaken anyways..

    In high school I got India Ink on my Mom's shirt and was told about the milk trick. I had washed the shirt twice already with no luck. Milk got it completely clean. Maybe ballpoint ink is to modern a formula for the milk to get completely clean.

    The potato trick sounds really cool - simple genius way to give your flowers water and nutrients. Just don't cut flower stems with scissors, please! Always use a sharp knife and make an angled cut to avoid crushing the capillaries and make it easier for the flower to suck up water. Also: Always store flowers in a cool, dark place and most importantly, away from fruit. All fruit emit ethylene ("ripening gas") that causes flowers to fade faster!

    There's a sailors trick to cooling drinks. Put them in a wet towel, tie it up and hang it up somewhere. The wind will evaporate water and pull heat from the drinks.
    You won't get your beers fridge-cold, but enough to cool them down by 10+ degrees for a nice drinking experience.

    throwing them over-board in a sack would also work, but since there is less evaporation, not as well and it has the added risk of losing your beverage to the waves.


    how about grab a real fuckin hammer

    You should try and see if milk removes old-fashion ink stains, not the pigment ink in modern pens.

    much easier way to do the hammer nail hack.
    First this might mar the surface so if you do not want the surface marrred follow the video. Hook the nail as deep into the claw as possible and with the top of the hammer touching the surface. Then push the handle sideways 90 degrees to the way you would normally pull out a nail. The nail will be pinched in the claw and pushing the handle to one side will raise the inside edge of the claw about a quarter of an inch( if you want metric google it.) then repeat but push the handle to the opposite side. Again this will mar the surface, crack sheetrock etc.

    Who else hates the lack of a control group for reference? I could hardly see any change in the boots, I don't know if the flowers lasted longer (especially since he cut the stem with a scissor) and I wonder if simply water and soap would had worked as well as the milk, if not better

    The acid in lemon juice cleans the oils on new leather, which is why new leather is hard to polish. Using on old dirty boots is not equivalent.

    depends on the type of bread you are getting, usually you can just cut the bread upside down, meaning face the curve side down and cut from the flat side. it's usually harder as it sits on the pan and generally harder than top (curved) parts of a loaf of bread.

    Different fabrics take stains differently. So a tshirt which is probably 50/50 poly cotton will keep a stain more than 100% linen. Synthetics are harder to get a stain out of.

    The nail hack can be made much easier with pliers. Grab some lineman or heavy duty long nose pliers and grab the nail close to the wood. Squeeze and twist/spin to bend the nail into the side like an alligator and it will yank the nail out. That's why these types of pliers have been nicknamed alligator style pliers.

    I always use hair spray (specifically Aquanet) to get ink out of fabric. Spray some hair spray onto the stain, let it sit for a few seconds, scrub light with an old toothbrush, and watch the stain disappear. Sometimes I put some Shout stain remover on after scrubbing with the hair spray. I've never had any trouble completely removing the stain this way.

    The ink stain trick would not work well on today's modern ink's, conventional ink's of the day in 1916 did not dry immediately as they do now and took time to soak in.

    wrap in wet paper towel.
    place in fridge (maybe in a bowl. so it doesn't go everywhere)
    or in freezer,not long. and in a plastic bag, so you will not need to clean the freezer.
    they didn't have a fridge then. we do. use it.

    1:40 firstly, every guy wearing a suit should have a handkerchief. But more to the point a t-shirt is a completely different fabric from a handkerchief, and the milk you used is completely different from what they would have had back then. Modern milk is pasteurized, fat is removed and then it is loaded up with chemical preservatives.

    Really not too hard to cut bread. Especially when you have a j.a henckels bread knife"very sharp knife"The trick is making the sawing motion to make the cut;which you did the second time around.

    The ink stain hack.. firstly the biro ink is something entirely different to what the hack is supposed to fix, secondly vigorously rubbing with a sponge was not part of the og hack and is a stupid idea with any stain, thirdly the particles that appeared after rubbing are bits of the cotton fabric not ink particles. Good try but each of these vintage hacks was wrecked with new age technology and idiocy

    You didnt even follow the cards. Even after you said the serrated knife wasnt invented until the 1900's you still used it. Then the card said a NEW BOOT you used a old dirty boot. Lame.

    You talk about hard times. I was stuck in the Simpson desert once with nothing but a handful of flour. I needed to make some bread to eat. Well I had no water so I had to use piss instead. I went to squat to piss but farted instead and blew all the flour away. You talk about hard times....
