    I want to keep neighbor's cats away from places where wild birds frequent. I've seen way too many killed just for fun.

    I'll have to try this. Im tired of neighbors cats leaving their mess in my gardens. There's pooper scooper laws that I obey. Should be the same for cat owners.

BUG OFF! - Here’s what you’ll need: essential oils (citronella and lemongrass are musts, I also like lavender or you could use tea tree oil or geranium oil for tick protection), 14 oz. bottle of witch hazel (available in grocery stores & pharmacies usually close to the rubbing alcohol), a spray bottle (or two–one for home and one for the diaper bag/car), a jar for mixing, and a funnel.

Lavender Vinegar Insect Repellent -I dislike the smell of vinegar but dislike the bug bites more. I will have to make this and see what it smells like.

DIY Dryer Sheets | a lot of dryer sheets contain animal fat. It really doesn’t get much easier than this! Per load, use one coffee filter and 1/2 or 1 teaspoon of liquid softener (depending on the size of the load) and rub the liquid softener into the filter and throw into your dryer. Save money? Check. Easy? Check. WORKS? Will have to find out

    I've been doing this for years...only I use an old facecloth cut into small squares, recycle/reuse instead of buying coffee filters. Works great!
