Recycled glass jars and bottles can be put to lots of good use around the house for storage or decorating. The most challenging part of recycling glass jars, however, can be getting the
label completely off with no traces of the sticky gunk left behind. In the past I've used a product called Goo Gone for this job and it's always worked well. But guess what? You can make your own Goo Gone by simply combining vegetable oil and baking soda. I tested it out on a couple little glass jars and it really does work!

Showerheads can get dirty with mineral deposits over time, but you can get them clean and fresh again with a simple homemade remedy. By putting some vinegar in a baggie and fastening it
over your showerhead (and then being patient for an hour or two!) you can get those crusty showerheads looking like new again. I used this method and was really happy with the results. You can read more complete step by step instructions on my blog by clicking on the link below.
I've never much cared for the store bought air freshener sprays. My nose just doesn't like anything real flowery or fruity, or fake smelling for that matter. So I came up with my own homemade Vanilla Air Freshener spray that's a simple combination of vanilla extract and water. And I love it! This works best in a mist bottle rather than a spray bottle so that you get a finer
mist sprayed into the air. For the complete recipe, you can click below:
