Looking back at things “used to be” is always fun and rewarding in many ways. New generation kids will come cross tips & tricks on social media and one might think these advices are the inventions of the 21st century, but some date all the way back to 1875> Tips and pieces of advice were usually printed on cards issued by tobacco manufacturers and distributed within every pack of cigarette. Did I just compare social media platforms to a pack of cigarette? Setting aside the distribution method, some of these advices are actually amazing and even useful after a century! – I posted some of my favorites – which are yours?

A splinter embedded in the hand is often very painful to extract. A good way to accomplish this is to fill a wide-mounted bottle with hot water nearly to the brim, and press affected part of hand tightly against mouth of bottle. The suction will pull down the flesh and steam will soon draw out the splinter.
