Test Title 1

{simple things} vinegar!

this summer w + i have had a slight problem w/ fruit flies. we haven't had a full on infestation but there's been a stray fly or 2 hanging around basically all summer. grr. soooo frustrating. {so much so that i've almost mastered the obama fly catch} last night i took to the internet to find a fix!

vinegar to the rescue ...

to rid your home of fruit flies: pour a cup of vinegar (preferrably apple cider vinegar) into a jar and add a couple drops of dish soap. place the jar in the area where you've seen the fruit flies and wait for your little homemade trap to do its job!

as of this morning, i've proudly caught (and killed) 2 little boogers. yahoo!

this of course got me interested in more miracle uses for vinegar. there are so many sites dedicated to vinegar! would you believe it ... i even found a blog with 131 uses for vinegar! 131!!! i knew this stuff was a must-have around the house. but had no clue it's full potential.

10 other awesome uses:

1 // to prolong the life of flowers in a vase: simply add two tablespoons of vinegar + three tablespoons of sugar per quart of warm water.
2 // to make wool sweaters fluffier: drop in a couple capfuls of vinegar during the rinse cycle.
3 // to remove stubborn price tags or stickers: paint them w/ several coats of vinegar. let them soak for 5 minutes and then wipe away.
4 // to clean windows: mix 1/2 vinegar + 1/2 water in a spray bottle. dry off with newspaper.
5 // to remove water stain rings left behind on your coffee table: mix equal parts distilled vinegar and olive oil. rub with the grain and polish for best results.
6 // to unclog a drain: pour a handful of baking soda down the drain and add 1/2 cup of vinegar. then rinse w/ hot water.
7 // to substitute for lemon juice in a recipe: use 1/2 teaspoon of vinegar in place of 1 teaspoon of lemon juice.
8 // to prevent mildew in the shower: spray the shower walls w/ half vinegar and half water mix. (the same mix for your windows.)
9 // to remove odors from the kitchen sink: wipe down the entire sink w/ straight vinegar and then pour 1 cup down the drain. wait an hour before rinsing.
10 // to keep a carpet spill from staining: use a cloth to soak up as much liquid as possible. spray w/ your half vinegar/half water mix. let stand for 2 min then blot w/ a towel.

i love a good home remedy!

speaking of ... i stumbled upon this little baking soda/oj face mask earlier today. baking soda exfoliates the skin and clear blackheads while the orange juice tightens the pores and brightens the skin due to the vitamin c. what do you think? should we give it a try?
