Cool Tips

Kevin Kelly's Cool Tools site strikes again with some very neat ideas that make life slightly better:

My favorites:

  • Get some Wintergreen oil (methyl salicylate) at the drugstore for a cheap, extremely effective way to loosen rusted or frozen bolts.
  • Don't bother cleaning paintbrushes between uses, especially between coats. Put them in the freezer instead.
  • Instead of expensive "clip chips", reseal opened bags with those office clip things.
  • Olive oil is the best shaving cream.  It's been used for zillions of years and works as well as the $15/can stuff.
