Use Lemons to Keep Insects Out of Kitchen

For ants, squirt lemon juice on door thresholds and windowsills, squeeze lemon juice into any holes that ants are getting in, and scatter lemon peel around the outdoor entrance.

For roaches and fleas, mix juice of 4 lemons along with rinds with 1/2 gallon of water and then wash the floor with it. Fleas and roaches hate the smell.

Did you know old, bad, rotten eggs float? Egg shells may seem pretty solid, but they are in fact slightly porous. Old eggs float in fresh cold water because of a large air cell that forms as the egg cools after being laid. As the egg ages, air enters the egg and the air cell becomes larger and this acts as a buoyancy aid.
