Absorb unwanted odors with coffee grounds. After brewing a pot of coffee, dump the grounds in a bowl and place it in the center of the room.

If you suffer a small cut but you don’t have any bandages around, use superglue. Apply a small amount to your minor cut or scratch to help seal and protect the injury.
