Alternative Uses!

I got this from Listener Chelsy who wrote "Recently (6/22/05) we celebrated one of my coworker’s birthdays. We ran into a bind. We had forgotten to get birthday candles for the cake and at the time it was a torrential downpour outside. After a long search I came across some of my Pearl Tampax …. and the rest is history….we used a light, regular and heavy tampon for her birthday candles, lit the ends and she made her birthday wish."

Yes, nothing says "Happy Birthday" quite like a bunch of burning tampons!! This is a quick-fix that would make MacGyver proud. Now, if only they could build a bomb out of Tampax and hand lotion!! Thanks Chelsy for the laugh!

Does anyone else have any good, alternate uses for household items?
