Things our moms did that we do too

What are some things that your mom did for you as a child that you do for your kids. Kind of like old wives tales I guess. For instance I give my older kids small amounts of coffee mixed with milk and sugar for constipation. Like 1/3 coffee, 2/3 milk and sugar. Works like magic. ;) Got anymore?

Baking soda paste for bee stings, vinegar or vanilla for burns.

I do this too!  well the bee one.  I also do peanut butter to get things out of hair.  (like gum)
