When buying fruit and veggies, always soak them in a 1:4 ratio of vinegar and water to help remove toxins and pesticides. Leave them soaking for up to an hour, longer with nonorganic apples. At the end of the bath, sometimes you can even see cloudy like stuff in the water from the skins and waxes, and dirt on the bottom. Works awesome!
Best home made body wash recipe I've found. (It's suppose to be ideal for Eczema) Update 3/15/12: I just finished making my first batch & I absolutely love it. It smells really great ( I used a lavender essential oil) & after washing my hands with it I quickly noticed how clean, soft & smooth they felt. I can't wait to try it on my son's eczema prone skin. I am going to have to make this my body wash as well.
Mix one vanilla pudding packet with half of the milk called for on the package. Whisk until it begins to thicken. Then fold in one container of Cool Whip. Use as a frosting spread on cakes and piped onto cupcakes, a substitute for plain Cool Whip in desserts like a chocolate trifle, a hot chocolate topping, a tasty filling in crepes, or on waffles along with some fruit.
