Does It Work?

Scratches, Embarrassing stains. There's lots of videos online promising "quick fixes!" Do they work?

Testers Laure and Bonnie are willing to try a few out.

First, how to fold a t-shirt in two seconds. We slowed down the impressive video, and they gave it their best shot. In the end, they got pretty close. Both testers feel, with a little practice, they could master this one.

When it comes to ink stains on white shirts, one online expert advises us to use hairspray. Spray the stain, then wash.

We tried it five times. It did fade several of the ink stains, but all of them were still visible.

When it comes to repairing scratches on cd's, there are lots of options out there. Peanut butter, toothpaste, even using a banana over the scratch.

We put toothpaste to the test. In the end, the cd still skipped.

Finally, how to open a wine bottle with a shoe. The online video say it's easy.

Bonnie and Laure disagree. They tried on on a wall, a concrete wall, the stairs. The cork didn't budge.

We even had three different testers try it, too. None of the men in this trial could get the cork to pop out.

Although it works for some, it's not easy, and could be embarrassing if you have guests.

One online suggestion we found works really well--using the foam padding on dry cleaning hangers to get rid of deoderant stains. Rub the padding over the stain, and it quickly removes it.
