If you have ever tried a Magic Eraser Sponge, I bet you were amazed. I know I was. At our old house (before we moved to our homestead) we had a shower enclosure in the second bathroom. The bottom of it was always dirty from my husband showering after work. He is a diesel mechanic and many times he arrives home quite black, and it seems that most of that black ends up on the shower floor. I tried so many things to clean it and it just took old fashioned elbow grease to scour it off. The older it got, the harder it became to get clean. That is, until I tried a Magic Eraser!

When you live in the country, there are an amazing amount of things that stain your clothes. Just every day things that you would never think twice about can do a real number on fabric. It is especially bad when you are in a hurry and don't examine the pieces before you wash and dry them. That sets the stains and makes them much harder to get out. As a result, I was in need of a super stain remover!

Replacing disposable items with reusable items is kind, thoughtful, frugal and saves time:
I love cooking tips. The new term for it is “kitchen hacks” but it is the same thing, only without the picture of an aproned grandma with a meat cleaver. I got many of these tips from my mom, but some I have just picked up along the way, while cooking.
I belong to a Facebook group called The Minimalist Life. It is about getting rid of the excess stuff in your life and paring it down to what is really important. They have posts about all kinds of decluttering and organization. It really has some great ideas.
Last week I saw a really awesome idea on how to turn a bookcase into a child's closet. This idea would be perfect for someone who had a very small house or apartment and had a new baby with no place to put their clothing and other baby items. The photo was from a group member named Sprite Dunbar. I got her permission to use the photo and to discuss her idea here on my blog.
In winter, when all your windows are shut tight, your house can take on a stale smell. Odors from your furnace, from cooking, even laundry, can make the air in your house not very pleasant to smell. But there is an easy fix for this! Simmering Potpourri is easy to make and gives your house a most delicious fragrance.
Today I want to share with you an easy recipe to make your own liquid hand soap. We use a lot of soap in our household. My husband is a mechanic, and as much as I garden, our hands are always dirty. I don't like bar soap because the bar always gets grimy and I hate looking at a dirty looking bar of soap on my sink top. It just looks gross! So to avoid this situation we use liquid soap. The problem is, good liquid hand soap is kinda pricey, so I learned to make my own!
