    thats interesting Tanya; does it mean cornstarch helps the clotting process while flour just slows the flow due to its smothering qualities? i have no idea...(always been bad at chemistry lol!)

    lmao. If you lit it you would most likely find that it smoulders. Flour doesnt. It smothers the heat.

    Yea yea. It would be funny if a first degree burn became 3rd degree. Corn starch actually doesnt absorb heat well. its a South African thing.

    Aasiya. Yes. Cornstarch is a more natural clotting agent than flour. It is packed tighter han flour. Flour also creats a slight barrier but absorbs bleeding because its not as tight. Cornstarch actually makes a much denser layer over a wound and lasts longer than flour.
    Flour works amazingly if you have a superficial burn. It absorbs the heat and draws it off the skin. Cornstarch does the oposite. It actually drives the heat back down into the skin.

    Keep a worn out muffin pan with your tool kit. Anything you have to repair, you can keep all the screws, bolts, nuts and washers etc. organized and out of the grass or dirt.

    Plastic barrels from food companies make great water troughs when cut in half.

    Build a set of turkey wire boxes, set them under your nut trees in the fall and you can save some nuts from the squirrels.

    Baling twine can be used to open bales. Just thread a piece of baling twine through the baling twine on the bale, pull up on the piece you have treaded through, one end in each hand and "saw" back a forward quickly. Super handy if you are like me and constantly losing your barn knife.
