How would you love to never have to refill that little soap dispenser pump attached to the edge of your sink? I found a soap dispenser with an extension tube that draws directly from the large bottle of liquid soap beneath your sink. That makes having soap at your fingertips so much more convenient!
I’m sharing two simple homemade dog shampoo recipes. There’s a dry-skin formula that contains oats, water and baking soda to help protect dry skin. The regular dog shampoo recipe contains just baby shampoo, water & vinegar.
Our needs for dog shampoo are slight. We only have one small dog. But she’s a cutie, let me tell ya!
I was thrilled to find a soapberry tree growing in our NE Texas property. I found it far back in a remote pasture. The berries on the tree had already turned yellow in those cool autumn days.
As a matter of fact, it was the yellow orbs that attracted my attention to the three. So I took photos of the tree, leaves, bark and the berries and sent them to my extension agent for proper identification.
She reported back that the tree was a Western Soapberry Tree (or Sapindus saponaria ssp. drummondii)
We found pet stains on our carpet. Even using a professional carpet cleaning service failed to permanently remove that carpet stain. But this inexpensive homemade stain treatment worked perfectly. And the stain never reappeared!
I easily make my own natural air freshener using only baking soda, essential oil, a repurposed canning jar & some pretty leftover lace. It’s simple to refresh when needed and it’s an inexpensive zero-waste answer to a deodorizing problem.
Jeans will just slide around on a regular clothes hanger, bunch on the end and cause the hangers to tangle. That sure makes for a mess in the closet. But come see how I use a child-sized hanger to keep my closet nice & tidy!
