There's always putzy stuff to do around the house - Make a list of all those little things and then refer to them when you feel like snacking: Brush the dog, organize/clean out the refrigerator or cupboards, empty the dishwasher, vacuum out the car, pull those pesky weeds out from the rocks around the tree, change the cat litterbox, plan next week's meals, clean your jewelry, sharpen your eyeliner pencils, straighten that pile of sweaters that fell over in the closet... All that silly stuff!
You know the little areas that you seem to have a hard time cleaning because you can't get to it. Well, here is a solution. Keep the old toothbrush heads to you electric tooth brush. I use it to clean my rings, fine pieces of jewelry, around the sink handles and just little areas I can't seem to get really clean. A regular toothbrush works but, with the electric toothbrush is easier on the hands.
Are you tired of going to a Jewelry store to get your jewelry cleaned? This recipe should help! 1. Use a small bowl and cut out a piece of aluminum foil to fit the bottom of the bowl. 2. Put a cup of warm water into bowl along with one TBLS of baking soda, salt, and dish soap. 3. Stir together and let jewelry soak for 10 minutes. 4.
