Save money on Salad dressings

Making your own salad dressings could save you a lot of money.
Salad dressings
They don’t have to be complicated to taste amazing.
Also, it’s quick and fresh, to make dressings from scratch.

Here is a recipe I learned when I was around eight years old.
Squeeze a couple of limes, add a tablespoon of olive oil, a pinch of salt and some freshly ground pepper. Mix well. It is done.

Who needs Botox?

Try this natural homemade facial mask! It only includes two ingredients.
Who needs Botox when we have bananas and plain yogurt?

I have tried it a few times, and it’s now one of my favorites. It will moisturize your skin, leaving it looking and feeling softer.

You need a ripe banana and a cup of plain yogurt. Mash up the ripe banana and mix it with the yogurt. Add the paste to your face and neck. Let it set for 15 to 20 minutes, then rinse off with cold water.

I hope you’ll give it a try and enjoy the results, as mush as I do.

Alka-Seltzer for a great tasty coffee.

Fill the water chamber of your coffeemaker with water and drop in four Alka-Seltzer tablets, wait for them to dissolve, next brew a cycle to clean the tubes. Turn off the coffeemaker and let it cool for about twenty minutes. To make sure the Alka-Seltzer is completely gone, rinse the chamber with water, and repeat the rinsing process two or three more times.
Then run another brew cycle with plain water before making coffee.

Cleaning your coffeemaker every other week or at least once a month will keep your coffee tasting good.

Feet warmer

After a long day at work, chasing the kids around, or just after finishing a home project, give your feet a well deserved rest and put those pretty empty wine bottles to a good use.

Fill one up with hot water, then sit down, relax, and roll it back and forth under your feet.

You feet will thank you.

Eliminate fireplace odor

Nothing cozier than a warm burning fire on a cold winter night.

Is your fire smelly?

Try adding a few lemon peels into the flames. The oil from the peels gives out a citrus scent,
a pleasant fragrance, banishing bad odors.
