Little known facts about....Bounce and Coke

BOUNCE...the stuff you use in your dryer:

Repels mosquitoes. Tie a sheet
of Bounce through a belt loop when
outdoors during mosquito season.

Eliminates static electricity from
your television screen. Since
Bounce is designed to help eliminate
static cling, wipe your television screen
with a used sheet of Bounce to
keep dust from resettling.

Clean with a used sheet of Bounce.

Freshens the air in your home.

a drawer or hang one in the closet.

of Bounce to eliminate the static
cling on the thread before sewing.

Eliminates static cling from pantyhose.

Cleans baked-on food from a cooking pan.
Put a sheet in the pan, fill

apparently weaken the bond between
the food and the pan while the fabric
softening agents soften the baked-on food.

of the wastebasket.

with a sheet of Bounce will
magnetically attract all the loose hairs.

a sheet of Bounce in your shoes or
sneakers overnight so they'll smell great in the morning.

bumpers: Rub the bumper with a
crumpled-up piece of Reynolds Wrap
aluminum foil dipped in Coke.

over the terminals to bubble
away the corrosion.

To bake a moist ham: Empty a can of
Coke into the baking pan;
wrap the ham in aluminum foil, and bake.
Thirty minutes before the ham
is finished, remove the foil, allowing the
drippings to mix with the Coke for a
sumptuous brown gravy.
