* re-grow your own green onions: I was shocked at how fast they grew back! I’m not growing them at the moment, but I had them all summer in a jar behind my sink. Remember to change the water!
* This made my mascara last about a month longer.
*kitty litter totally came through on our master bedroom dresser. No more musty smell!
* I tried this during the Christmas break and it really did wonders to freshen my towels.
*this has worked great as a fabric softener. I don’t soak it, I just kind of pour it on the washcloth and let it dry. It lasts me a good month.
*this stain remover is amazing~I don’t buy it at the store anymore! I’ve used it on my carpet~it got 3 year old stains out, on ring around the collar, underarm stains, spaghetti sauce, blueberries, you name it. Here, I sprayed it on some tough spots in my linoleum where it has the little grooves, let it sit for a couple of minutes, and it came right up with a scrub brush. I had it pinned twice here and here, but it’s basically the same recipe. I love how Brooke used it in her car too!
* I use this to clean my tubs and showers now~no more comet! I use baking soda if I need some extra scrubbing power in the tub.
*Using rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle was life changing for our nasty brown microfiber couches downstairs! of course, it always looks worse with a flash to accentuate the nastiness, but you know I love me a good before and after it really worked wonders on them. My 5 year old said, we got new couches!! :)
And some recipes!! Here are a few that we’ve loved:
Easy but sinful marshmallow popcorn. I want some now.
Easy Pad Thai is in my permanent recipe book now. My whole family LOVED it and I love finding good meatless recipes. I double the sauce and use fettucine noodles.
Easy 1 hour rolls~I was shocked at how good they are for 1 hour?? Definitely a keeper.
Tomato Basil Parmesan Soup. Soooo good, but I have to tell you my kids did not like it. My husband and I devoured it and it tasted even better the next day.
Okay, that’s all for now. I want to make this a regular feature, more to come!! I would love to hear your favorite pins that have been life changing~let us know in the comments ~I love to follow people on Pinterest with awesome pins ;)
