Recipes Not For Eating

The internet is jammed full with homemade solutions to everyday situations.  These concotions provide simple and easy remedies and preventatives that can keep it simple and easy for us.  "" has recipes for all things - not just food.

Below are a few of these recipes that I believe will be most helpful.  Take a look.

 Recipe to Get Rid of Ants

1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons boric acid
3 cups warm water

Mix the sugar and Boric Acic well.

Add the warm water slowly, mixing all the while so it won't be too lumpy.
Store in a jar.

When ready to use, put cotton into the top of a jar lid to fill it, and then saturate the cotton to the top.

Place where you want it; make several if you need it.

Will keep for a long while.

NOTE: I usually drip a drop or two over the edge of the lid to rest on the counter so they will find it sooner.

It sometimes takes a little while for them to find it, but find it they will.

When they do, let them alone; you will want to kill them because they look so creepy; but don't because they will hang over the edge of the lid and drink, drink, drink, and then take it back to the nest.

Almost over night, they will be gone.

Drain Unclogger Recipe

1/4 cup baking soda

1/2 cup vinegar


Pour baking soda into drain.
Follow with vinegar.

Recipe for Furniture Polish

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon lime juice


Put the ingredients in a bowl.

Mix well.

With a soft cloth, apply this on your furniture.

Immediately wipe off with a dry soft cloth.

Lo and behold- your furniture will shine like new.

Hair Clarifier Recipe

While you're in the shower, bring along the box of baking soda with you.

Measure out approximately 1 tablespoon of baking soda and add it to twice as much shampoo in your palm.

Use the shampoo as you would normally, using the pads of your fingertips to give your scalp a thorough massage.

Rinse very well with cool water, and then condition as normal.

The baking soda should help remove build-up, naturally!

Let me know if you use any of these and your opinion.

Meanwhile .... keep it simple and make it real.
