Tip of the Day #56: Freshen Towels

Wash your towels with 1 cup vinegar in your washing machine, then run another cycle with 1/2 cup baking soda. They will smell 10 times better as over time, towels take on permanent musty scent. Try for yourself and notice the difference! :)

Tip of the Day #55: Cleaning Pillows

Every so often, place your pillows in the dryer with 2-3 tennis balls to return them to their original 'fluff state.' The high heat will also rid them of all germs.

Tip of the Day #54: Spider Prevention

Do you have spiders roaming your house? To prevent them, combine one cup vinegar, one cup pepper, a teaspoon of oil (like vegetable, olive, etc) and a teaspoon of dish soap. Pour into a spray bottle and spray along the outside frames of your door and windows. Remember to always refresh when it rains.

Tip of the Day #51: Butter Tip

Butter can be a nuisance when coming out of the fridge and takes awhile to warm, so use a vegetable peeler to shave small amounts that are much more manageable!
