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.
With cookout season in full swing, Robert wanted a deck that looked every bit as good as what was coming off his grill. That’s why he went with Olympic® ELITE Advanced Stain + Sealant in One in a grey hue (Ironbark solid). Not only was he able to transform the look of his space with a color he loves, Robert knows he chose a stain that’ll stand up to some wear. Because while the cookouts are sloppy and the sun is relentless, the color on his deck is here to stay.
Wash your towels in hot water with a cup of vinegar, then run again in hot water with a half-cup of baking soda. That will strip your towels from all of that residue & mildew smell & will actually leave them feeling fluffy & smelling fresh. Going to do this with the washcloths and spill rags.
SKUNK WASH One quart 3% hydrogen peroxide ¼ cup baking soda 1 teaspoon of liquid dish or laundry soap (without bleach or ammonia) Mix these 3 ingredients together, then dip a washrag in the solution and rub down the dog. Rinse and the odor will disappear within minutes! This recipe can also be used for clothes, skin, etc.
remember....Borax ant bait. Borax is the most common ingredient in house ant control products, and get this: it's absolutely 100% natural. The best way (in my opinion) to use Borax is to mix 1 cup of warm water with 1/2 cup of sugar, and 2 tablespoons of Borax. Then soak the Borax mixture up with cotton balls and place those cotton balls near any trails the ants have established in your home. Feeding frenzy... tomorrow they'll be gone. I knew there had to be a way to do this naturally!
