This can be used to clean the bath, the basin, the bathroom floor, the tiles around the shower and the gungy ones above the stove, too. It's also great for cleaning toilets - just sprinkle a bit on the porcelain, then use the toilet brush to scrub it on. Pour a gurgle of vinegar in and scrub that around too. It's even good to clean the oven, as long as the oven isn't too disgusting. A slightly warm oven is easiest to clean but should not be too hot to touch. If you use this cleaner, your home should smell great! Requires 1 sprayer or atomiser - those squirty things you use to water indoor plants.
Between the teachings of my Grandmother, an Aunt, my Mother and several restaurants I learned a lot about serviette/ napkin folding. Now that I have already posted all the napkin folds I know, I decided to look on the net for some new ones to learn. This one is a close variation of Recipe #240981 and can be made in advance up to the to last flat stage and stacked for easy use later.
This is very inexpensive compared to all the whiteners on the market. And is not the same as those gels on the market this has only 2 ingredients which you know and are at hand in every home. It gets your teeth & gums nice and clean. I do it once every couple weeks. A great way to remove wine, tea, coffee, & tarter stains. If you don't like the taste add a a drop of mint extract. It's is SAFE for your use and has been used for a long time. You can check this article at http://www.dentalgentlecare.com/whitening_safety.htm
A recent report suggested a "possible" link between tooth whitening and oral cancer. It was based on two (only 2)case reports of patients who contracted oral cancer with none of the known risk factors. There are no new studies cited. We call this to your attention because the report got substantial media play. Interestingly, the report itself states that carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide-chemicals generated in the whitening process-AREN'T CARCINOGENS IN THE MOUTH.

This is no more cancerous then the fat, grilled food and processed foods people put in their bodies filled with ingredients your can't read.
If you go into your cabinet and read the hydrogen peroxide bottle it states to use as an gargle and mouth rinse.
Melly Mel asked if there was a withdrawal patch for Recipezaar when she was going to be away for a while. I rushed in to provide this home remedy - but remember, this is not for long term use. You must return to Recipezaar as soon as your circumstances permit!
Don't buy the tablets, use whats in your pantry! Glitter and tie-dyed eggs too! Use in recipe #153466 to make Cascarones. Cook time is drying time. Safe and natural for those of you who eat them easter morning!
This spray works equally well on monsters and bad dreams. We spray it as part of the nightly bedtime ritual, while DD chants, "Monsters, Monsters, stay away." The lavender scent is calming and everyone knows that monsters and bad dreams hate that smell. This spray saved us from lots of tears and terror at bedtime and in the middle of the night.
This will help take care of those fruit flies that gather around the stuff you have to take out to the compost pile or those bananas you haven't gotten around to baking with yet. The photo I posted (the one with the cherry & grape tomatoes) shows several fruit flies on the paper already (and a couple are in the vinegar, though you can't see them)--not even three minutes after making the trap! Some kinds of cider vinegar work better than others--typically, I find the darker the vinegar, the better it works.
I know some people have said they prefer to use plastic wrap over the top, but I find that the paper cone (though it takes some fiddling to get it to fit just right) works best.
This is an easy and frugal way to make your own laundry soap. Try making your own scents using different scented soaps! This recipe orignally calls for fels naptha soap which you can find at your local walmart or major grocery stores. But I found just about any good soap will work just as well!
This toner smells beautiful and will help you get beautiful skin too. This uses common ingredients found around the house and costs very little to make. We have a rose bush outside and a rosemary bush. Making this cost pennies! However this does require refridgeration since there are not any preservatives in it. Which also makes this a great choice for sensitive skin.
This a simple to make and easy to use sugar scrub. You may have seen simmilar versions selling in chain stores that are expensive. However, this is simple to make and easy to make variations of. Its good for exfoliating any part of your body and seems to work well on my sensitive skin. It makes my skin soft without having to spend a lot which is important when you are a broke student! I hope you enjoy! This originally callled for one cup olive oil, but i have since changed it to 1/2 cup to reflect the reccomendations of others.
My daughter spilled a cup of grape juice on her hot pink shirt. This did the trick, and the shirt's still pink! I got this from my sister in law and am posting it here so I don't lose it. The "dish detergent" is actually Cascade automatic dishwasher detergent-it wouldn't let me enter that as an ingredient.
Nothing lovelier during the holidays than to see and, more especially, SMELL a pomander. They are one more thing that makes the holidays special. Start making them now so they'll be completely dry by the time the holidays arrive. They make lovely gifts. From Barbara Randolphs 'Gifts From The Kitchen'.
Pomanders were originally metal or ivory filigree balls filled with spices fixed with ambergris, hence the name (from the French "pomme d'ambre", or apple of ambergris). Having a bowl of these fragrant oranges (or lemons) near an entryway or on a kitchen table is one of my favorite and easiest holiday decorating traditions. Prep time depends on how the size of the fruit; the smaller, the quicker it will harden and dry.
P.S. - don't eat 'em - they're just for fragrance!
This makes an excellent gift. Make sure you make some for yourself too though because it really smells wonderful. Please note, you need to use whole cloves. Ground cloves are much stronger and will definitely overwhelm the other scents. If you aren't a fan of cloves, feel free to leave them out entirely. I do sometimes.
I made this up yesterday to try get rid of the urine odor from my sons potty training exploits.(Long story, but I couldn't figure out where the smell was coming from and I had scrubbed everything possible!)
I sprayed my room (carpet, curtain etc.) and now it just smells fresh! I recommend this to all!
(Use only essential oils and use in a ventilated area.)
