· Forgotten the toothpaste?
Fresh, sliced strawberries rubbed onto the teeth removes plaque and discoloration. Dentures can be soaked overnight in white vinegar.
· Tomatoes, aloe, lemon and toothpaste are all spot on
Holiday spots can be banished by dabbing on tomato juice, aloe vera or sliced lemon. Or if you’ve found your toothpaste, dab a little onto the spot.
· The eyes have it
Reduce puffy eyes and dark circles by applying chilled, sliced raw potato on closed eyes for 10 minutes. A cooled can of coke, bottle of water or chilled spoon applied beneath the eyes also works well.
· Pig of a stye?
To alleviate the swelling and soreness out of a stye warm up a gold ring and press gently on the swollen area. Urine dabbed on carefully is also said to have a positive medicinal effect.
· Nail It.
Improve the look of finger and toe-nails by soaking them in lemon juice, then massage with olive oil. Fungal infections can be banned by soaking nails in white vinegar for 15 minutes three times daily.
