Keep this in mind if you start seeing lots of spiders around your place. Natural spider killer or preventer...take one cup of vingar, one cup of pepper powder, a teaspoon of oil and liquid soap. put it into a spray bottle and spay along the outside of your door(outside door) and along windows refresh after it rains.
I just heard about this at physical therapy! Homemade Ice packs: 1 part rubbing alcohol to 3 parts water, gets really cold, but never hardens so you can manipulate it. every athlete (or mom) should pin this!
I am in heaven - I saw it on somebody else's pinterest, but can't remember who - i did the white vinegar and dawn dish soap to clean the shower tonight. AMAZING!!!!!!! I did one cup each. Put it in a squirt bottle, shook it up - sprayed it on and let it sit for about an hour - came back and with a soft sponge, it wiped right off!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE
Good old Martha taught us that rather than buying those ridiculously expensive anti-slip mats for a rug, just turn it over and run a few lines of acrylic-latex caulk every 6 inches or so. Let dry and flip over and your rug wont be going anywhere! help-home
