Also courtesy of Keeper of the Home is this terrific and easy method to clear blocked and stinky drains. Sprinkle approximately 1/4 to 1/2 cup of baking soda down the drain, followed with 1/4 cup white vinegar. A bubbling mixture will result. Let it sit for about an hour and then pour boiling hot water down the drain to rinse. Depending on the extent of the clogging or smell of your drain, you may need to repeat this process.
HOW TO MAKE HOME MADE WEED KILLER
1/2 Gallon white vinegar, 1/2 cup Epsom Salt, 1 Tablespoon dishwashing liquid
SNAILS AND SLUGS
Beer for the Slugs: sink a tuna can into the ground, and add a couple of inches of beer, to about an inch below the top of the container. The slugs will go in for a drink and drown. Beer works because the slugs are attracted to the yeast. It’s really important to sink the container into the soil and keep the beer about an inch lower than the soil. This way, the slugs have to go down after the beer, and they drown.
Salt works straight away. Just put some salt on snails and watch them die.
