A few good things
I want to share with you a few good things that i really like.
Concentrate Vitamin E- I bought this in the summer after Kai and Cash got sunburns. It is really really sticky- so when i tried to put it on them, it didn’t work, it just gooped and stuck. They were not happy with me at all when i was applying it so i didn’t try anymore. But i have been using it on my steamburn and it has been keeping it really nice and the pain down.
Something else i tried it on last week was my cold sore. I get them really bad and for the last 4 years i have been using a prescription. Who knows what is in that stuff and it only kinda works, everytime i put it on i think about all the chemicals. Yuck. Right now Joel is on leave from work so we have no benefits, so i didn’t buy the cream- i think it is like 50$. My Vit E has been sitting on the counter, i thought what the heck it won’t hurt anything at all, and i think it healed my coldsore, in record time!! Now this was only the first time i did this so i can not be too sure. But i was excited! And i am excited to try it again.
Baking soda scrub- I love this for cleaning my grout around my wood stove. During the winter all the ashes and soot kinda get stuck in the grout even with sweeping and washing. But a thick paste of this stuff and a good knuckle busting scrub works wonders. In fact it looks brand new like the day we put it on. It is alot of work but very worth the end result.
I just started using vinegar this week in my dishwasher, our water is very hard and so it is a pain. There are spots on everything, the sinks, the shower, the dishwasher, the coffee pot is a little yucky. Sometimes it plugs up with water minerals and the dripper stops dripping so then it needs to be soaked in vinegar over nite. Also a couple of pots of vinegar get run through.
I could not believe how quick it worked. I was very happy with the result, i used a glass 1 cup measurer and filled it up to the top. All week i have been doing this in every wash but next week i think i will half it and do it everyother wash. Following that week i will use 1/2 a cup and put it in the dishwasher every 4 washes. The vinegar always goes in the second wash (the rinse). I think that is were i will have to stay and that is easy to do, i am happy doing that if i keeps my dishes nice. If you try this you will be so happy with the results. Our dishes were so gross, i didn’t even want to drink out of the cups anymore. Now they are sparkly clean!! Yippee!
Bio oil- Dallas bought me this after she tried it and she said it worked for her. She bought it for my baby stretch marks. The bottle says that it should take a few months to do its job. So i hope that i can be dilegent at using it, i am not very good at making new habits. This is something i really want to start doing in the next few months, now that i think it is time to get working again on our routine and my routne. There are so many things that i want to do and most of the time i really do have the time BUT i usually run out of time. How does that happen- i am a magic time changer. BUT… This is another post for another day. I would like to share with you a few habits that i want to make and how i am going to go about doing them!
Next week i want to share a few more good things.
