"Cornstarch" Common Things With Uncommon Uses


1. Window cleaner. For a nice polish on your windows, mix a little cornstarch with ammonia and water.
 

2. Roach killer. Mix with plaster of Paris (half and half) and sprinkle behind appliances or cupboards. The pests will petrify’ once they ingest the concoction.
 

3. Knot detangler. To help untie a stubborn knot, sprinkle it with a little cornstarch.
 

4. Glove skid. Sprinkle cornstarch inside your rubber gloves—they’ll be much easier to put on and take off.
 

5. Pastry aid. Before rolling out pastry dough, sprinkle the board and rolling pin with cornstarch—it’s tasteless and cleans up easily.
 

6. Pet shampoo. To remove dirt and add fluff without bathing, rub cornstarch into your pet’s coat, then comb and brush out.
 

7. Baby powder. Apply sparingly when diapering a baby.
