The "miracle" of baking soda and peroxide. Put 1/4 cup of baking soda in a bowl.....add enough peroxide to make a paste. Rub on with fingers or sponge. Cleans EVERYTHING! Stove, oven, pans, stainless steel applicances, even the white handles of the refrig door.

De-tarnish ALL your silver ALL at once... line your sink with aluminum foil, add 1/2 c table salt, 1/2 c. baking soda, fill with hot water, then dump in all your silver! Let sit for about 30 min. The tarnish all transfers to the foil! Thanks, Susan Branch!

QUITE Brilliant! - Seal a plastic bag with the top of a water bottle or any plastic bottle and the lid.

Mosquito repellent spray Recipe courtesy of my talented sister :) In a spray bottle, mix and shake well to blend: 2 cups witch hazel 15 drops citronella essential oil 15 drops lemongrass essential oil 5 drops lavender essential oil* 5 drops peppermint essential oil* *If you don't have lavender and peppermint essential oil on hand, you can substitute 5 more drops each of citronella and lemongrass. Helpful Hints and Tips Do not spray directly on faces. Instead, spray in your hands and then rub onto your face, avoiding your eyes and mouth. The best protection against mosquito-borne illness is avoidance. If you can, remain indoors during their peak hours (dawn and dusk). This spray is not waterproof/sweat-proof, so you will need to apply again hourly to ensure continued protection. Also, it will not protect against ticks, so if you are planning an outing where tick exposure is likely, I would recommend a store-bought product that contains DEET. Have a terrific, bite-free day!
