• Mice love peanut butter even more than cheese. The following is an easy approach to capturing mice using peanut butter. Position a five-gallon bucket with a lid in a room that mice seem to visit the most. Cover the bucket and cut a four-inch hole in the lid. Make a ramp so that the mice fall in. Spread peanut butter around the hole. After he falls in, bring him at least two kilometres from your home/camper before releasing him.

• Remove scratches on CDs using peanut butter. Apply a small amount of peanut butter to a coffee filter, wipe the scratches and remove all excess peanut butter.
