Chalk is not just for hopscotch (although that is fun!).  Here are some other uses for chalk!

    1. Clean Grease: Use chalk on grease stains (think spilled salad dressings), just rub it over the stain and wash as usual
    2. Keep your silverware shiny:  Store some chalk with your silverware and it will help prevent tarnishing
    3. Combat Ants: Ants will not cross a chalk line.  If you’re having a problem with ants, just draw a line around doors/windows and they will not cross it!
    4. Brighten finger nails:  Rub a nail brush over chalk and then use the brush on your finger nails for shiny clean nails
    5. Shine Sinks:  Crush a piece of chalk into a powder.  Dip a damp cloth into the chalk and use it to scrub the sink.  It will be nice and shiny (works on marble too)!
    6. Keep tools from slipping:  A little chalk on the end of your screwdriver will hold it in place while you’re using it!
    7. Prevent Mustiness:  Chalk absorbs moisture and can help with mustiness in your closets, laundry baskets or cupboards! 
    8. Prevent Rust: A couple of pieces of chalk in your toolbox will absorb moisture and help keep prevent your tools rust free.
