Are you keeping house? Then you need this book! It’s out of print but you can find it here.
It has hints for getting gum out of hair, sealing cracks on china, how to get scuffs off the walls (use a slice of stale bread!) how to prevent pasta from overboiling (oil the sides of the pot!) how to keep ants (baking soda!) away or mice (spearmint chewing gum!)
I think I refer to this book several times a week. It is an absolute must if you are living anywhere.
