My grandma taught me this many years ago. Refreshing towels I use this trick all the time since I noticed my towels smelling funky. It works! - Over time, towels build up detergent and fabric softener, leaving them unable to absorb as much water and smelly. Recharge them by washing them once with hot water and 1cup vinegar, then a 2nd time with hot water and half cup baking soda. This strips the residue and leaves them fresh and able to absorb more water again. Works like a charm!
When you paint a room, put some extra paint in a baby jar* and keep it handy for quick touch-ups. pinner said *I did this Aug. 2011 - don't use a baby food jar - use a peanut butter jar that has a PLASTIC lid or it will rust - that was a tip from my painter - it's all stored in a cabinet in the house - just take it out and shake well and use a q-tip for quick touch ups. This has got to be one of the best things I've ever pinned!!!!
ONLY use this and it leaves floor spotless. (Heavy duty floor cleaner recipe: ¼ cup white vinegar 1 tablespoon liquid dish soap ¼ cup baking soda 2 gallons tap water, very warm.) Done this, works super well and leaves everything smelling amazing.
1 teaspoon sea salt or sugar 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil Mix together, then spread on area and rub gently prior to showering. Wash off before shaving. By exfoliating the area, you can help eliminate excess dead skin that could be causing a reaction. The salt in the scrub also aids an an anti-bacterial to keep irritation down as well. Another thing that helps a lot of people is to apply coconut oil to the surface prior to shaving.
