If you get candle wax on your carpet or clothing just place a square of kitchen roll over the wax and iron over it. lifts it off with out leaving a mark.

A hair dryer can also be used but doesn't work as well

This method to stop hiccupping works EVERY TIME
It sounds a little odd, but it really does work.

press one thumb against each nostril, so you cannot breath out of your nose. Then put a free finger in each ear. Now close your mouth and try to breath out as much as you can (you will look like pob at this point). Do this until you cannot carry on (about 20 seconds) and your hiccups will have stopped.

Petrol (or gas for you americans)
If you are driving a new car (or a hire car, or a stolen car, or whatever) and you are unsure which side the petrol cap is on, look at the little petrol pump symbol on the dash. It will either be on the petrol gauge or on the low fuel light.

Whichever side of the little symbol the hose is on, that's which side of the cat the petrol cap is on.
