Pinner: Deodorant with 3 simple ingredients. I made this and will NEVER use store bought deodorant again - ever. Works better than anything I have tried. And you don't smell like a coconut all day - not that I would mind. Thinking of adding cloves for a man's deodorant. Not that a dude couldn't use this one.
Green Tea Face Mist - Not only will you feel cool and refreshed, but the antioxidants in the tea will do your skin a world of good as well! And don't limit this to your face. We brought ours to the beach and sprayed our arms and legs as well! A perfect and simple new beach essential!
Peppermint oil--Since the mosquitoes are going to be on overload this season, I need to whip up a batch of this.
Swarms of Mosquitoes on my patio led me to an old home remedy - Did you know that chopped up garlic makes mosquitoes disappear? I buy minced, dried garlic at local Fiesta grocery stores and sprinkle it around on my patio. I have to stand back as I am using it - mosquitoes will literally swarm out of your plants and bushes to get away from the smell. Works like a charm!! Going to try this next year.
Self cleaning toilet ~ Punch a hole in the top of a bottle of vinegar and sit the bottle in your toilet tank. In doing this you will save water, as the tank wont fill as much, the vinegar will clean your toilet AND tank on each flush, it leaves the bathroom smelling fresh and it doesn't harm any component of your toilet OR the environment when flushed.
