Homemade Febreze
Homemade Febreze

Febreze smells too strong to me - I don't like scented products at all. But I thought I would share this idea for those that love them!

Homemade Febreze: What you'll need:
1/8 Cup of fabric softener (suggestion - Downy April Fresh)
2 tablespoons Baking Soda
Hot tap water
Spray bottle (suggestion - empty 27 oz. Febreze bottle)

Combine all in bottle, shake well and use!

ANOTHER THOUGHT: I don't know if it would work as well, but you could use unscented liquid fabric softeners. I think that Downy, Bounce and Target have unscented fabric softeners? I should try it with the unscented Nature Clean fabric softener - we have used Nature Clean organic cleaners for years!

Why Are Hard-Boiled Eggs So Hard to Peel?

DID YOU KNOW?? Adding baking soda to the water when you are hard boiling eggs - the shell will come right off!

Add 1/2 tsp of baking soda to the water - it will make the egg shell easier to peel.

NOTE: The only downside is that this can make the eggs taste more sulfuric.

Here's the formula:
1 3/4 cup water

Spray on, scrub, wipe off.
