For most of this afternoon, I surfed the internet for cool homemaking and DIY tips. There are so many great ideas out there! You can find a homemade recipe for pretty much anything you need. Some of my favorite blogs and sites are:
DIY: Home Sweet Home
I Heart Organizing
Here are the two I tried today:
DIY Salt Scrub (found through a link on Carolina Charm's Blog)
5 Tablespoons of Sea Salt
1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil
Juice of 1 lemon
Mix Sea Salt and Olive Oil together first (this way lemon juice isn't just soaked up into salt). Then mix in lemon juice. Voila!
I tried it out this afternoon... works and smells great!
DIY Linen Spray (another one from Carolina Charm's Blog)
1/2 teaspoon of your favorite scented oil (she suggests lavender, I used "love" from a hippie store)
1 oz vodka or rubbing alcohol
2 cups distilled water (I used tap water and it was fine)
Combine in a spray bottle and enjoy!
