Today I have spent cleaning out the kitchen, always a good idea many things you can find! Things you have bought and forgot about, how many of us relate to that.
I have been very disappointed in the makeups and facial cleaners and all other products for our bodies, so I decided get motivated and make my own, as well as cleaning products. Baking soda is great for many things, cleaning, a face mask, clean your teeth and I could go on!
Create an antacid by mixing ½ teaspoon of baking soda with ½ cup of water. To clean a toilet, add ¼ cup baking soda to the bowl, swirl, then scrub. To deodorize a drain, pour about ½ cup baking soda down the drain, followed by ½ cup vinegar. After 15 minutes, pour in boiling water to clean residue.
I found this recipe from Wellness Mama, www.wellnessmama.com. some handy tips also!
