Baking soda neutralizes the ph in the soil and nothing will grow there. use baking soda around all of the edges of flower beds to keep the grass and weeds from growing into beds. Just sprinkle it onto the soil so that it covers it lightly. Do this twice a year – spring and fall.
To paint over ANY surface, without sanding, use a product called 'ESP Easy Surface Prep', available at hardware and paint shops. Wipe on, wipe off and paint in 90 minutes. Works well over enamel paint , without having to sand. SAVES HOURS of work. It was recommended to me by a professional painter.
while on honeymoon, send yourself a postcard every day from where ever you are and write on it what you did that day. once home, bind them for an instant scrapbook of your trip: complete with photos, stamps, and a run-down of each days events. LOVE this idea!!!
Pinner: Mason jar soap dispensers! I just did this and it turned out very nice. I used a hammer and a nail to start the hole instead of a power drill. My first pump stick didn't work well but I switched it with another and it works great. I love that I can make the jar as big or as small as I liked. Great idea!
