Smart Idea that Some mom had..I will definitely do this!! No more trying to remember when I took her in to the doctor, when she started the antibiotics, if she had taken it that morning or not, counting on my fingers to see when she could stop taking it....it was all right there on the bottle! And making those "Xs" every day was very gratifying.
Great idea.. I usually write it on a piece of paper by the medicine bottle, but this is so much better.

But in our homes, there are many other areas the liquid soap can be helpful outside of your kitchen sink, including the back yard or your bathroom. Curious? Here are some of our favorite other uses for dish soap, below.

Cake Mix Hacks - More Eggs Eggs give cake flavor and help them rise. Add an extra egg or two for a richer, fluffier cake.
20 Unusual Uses for Eggs, Egg Shells, and Egg Cartons. Today’s set of “weird but amazing uses for everyday objects” is all about the humble egg and its shell – and definitely contains some weird ones. A few of them are just plain “out there”. Many of these I had not heard of before my recent discovery of Eco Salon’s page (link at the foot of my commentary).Most of the 20 uses are pretty brilliant – and there are a few that really caught my eye. I love the idea of egg white makeshift band-aid… and the jewelry enhancer? There’s some interesting chemistry at work there… presumably the egg yolk reacts with the silver to create silver sulphide – which may result in an interesting hued-patina on the surface of the silver. Whatever the results, it seems likely that you could clean off the patina with silver polish if you wanted to.I have to be honest, though: A couple of these I would not try. I just wouldn’t. Egg yolk as facial or egg yolk as shampoo? No, I am not cracking an egg in my hair or on my face! I’m just not! Is this just the latest extension of the fashion for edible items ending up in bathroom products? Or is there actually something to it? Can someone verify?I’ve searched around (plenty of articles on this subject) and found a few other uses to add in as a bonus… 1) Eggshells can be used as an abrasive due to their roughness. However, they would leave scratches on stainless steel.2) Slug deterrent. Grind the eggshells roughly and sprinkle them around the base of precious plants. Think about it, slugs and worms are not going to like this crunchy, scrapey stuff – and it’s eco friendly as not only will the eggshell biodegrade fully after a while, but it will provide essential nutrients (calcium) for the plant. Triple action!3) Natural News has a confident-sounding article about tooth remineralization using comfrey and eggshells! I have no idea if this works, but it is a fascinating concept and “looks good on paper” due to the properties of these two items.4) Cat deterrent. Apparently cats don’t like walking on crunched up eggshells either – and it is said that they will habitually avoid areas where the pieces have been scattered.5) Use the eggshells as seed planters. This is an elegant idea, and I made a post about it recently: How To Plant Seeds Using EggshellsA safety tip – it is possible that eggshells may contain bacteria. Putting them in a 150 degree oven for 10 minutes prior to use is suggested, as is cleaning the eggs prior to opening them.Anyway here is the link to the full list of 20 weird but amazing uses for eggs and Anyway here is the link to the full list of 20 weird but amazing uses for eggs and eggshells:http://ecosalon.com/20-unusual-uses-for-eggs-egg-shells-and-egg-cartonsEnjoy!

Homemade Bath Crayons. I might do this as a stocking stuffer!!
homemade soap crayons! This is a must do for little christmas gifts.
rate 1 bar of white soap or a 2 pound brick of melt and pour goats milk soap into a microwave safe bowl. Make sure to use the finest setting on the grater because large clumps of soap may not melt well. 2 Add water to the mixture if you are using grated commercial soap. No water is needed if you are using melt and pour soap. Stir the water into the grated soap until it becomes saturated. If you are using a melt and pour soap, put your soap into the microwave for 30 second intervals until the soap is completely melted. Do not put grated commercial white soap into the microwave. 3 Add food coloring to the soap. You can add as little or as much as you like depending on how dark you want the color to show up when the crayon is used to draw with. Add more for a darker color and less for a lighter color. Stir it into the soap well so that the color is evenly distributed throughout the soap crayon mixture. 4 Press the soap crayon mixture into the molds if you are using grated soap. You should apply enough pressure to the soap so that no air bubbles are inside it. This could cause the soap to be mis-shaped. Allow the grated soap crayons to dry for one to two days. If you are using melt and pour soap, pour the hot soap into the molds and allow them to harden for one to two hours. Once your soap crayons are dry and hardened, gently tap them out of the mold.

Great idea! Reuse Salt Pour Spout With Canning Jars: When finished with an empty cardboard salt container, cut the whole round top piece off and measure to fit a canning jar ring. Trace and cut with the flat part with scissors to fit a canning jar. Fill the jar with sugar (or salt or powdered non-dairy creamer if you use that). The pour spouts make for easy access to your sugar and creamer.
