Every couple of months sprinkle a mixture of baking soda and a tablespoon of your favorite fabric softener over your mattress, let it sit for an hour, and then vacuum it up. Gets rid of dust mites and freshens up the mattress. Keep that same mixture in a small mason jar with holes poked in the top in your linen or clothes closet to keep it smelling fresh! Many Baking Soda Tips!!!
Who knew - add 1/2 tsp baking soda to the water when hard boiling eggs and the shell will come right off. Perfect when having to peel a ton for deviled eggs! One of my followers (Sharon-thanks!) commented that this really works :)
Dandelion oil You can make Infused Dandelion Oil yourself! It's used as a massage oil on swollen joints and sore muscles. Here's how: *Pick a glass container full of Dandelion blossoms. *Pour olive oil over the blossoms until they're covered. *Cover the container with a "breathable" lid. Like a cloth or a coffee filter. Use a rubber band to keep it in place. *Place in the sun to steep for 2 weeks. (This method is best for massage oils) *Strain and keep in a cool, dark place.
