Of course these only really work on hardwood floors or tile. And even then, they’ll pick up *some* stuff, but not everything — to pick up more dust and debris, you have to put a little effort into using your feet as brooms and sweeping everything into one pile. But when I

Once you find out why throwing an aspirin into your washing machine is recommended, you will be amazed. Who would’ve thought that aspirin can have such a purpose?

This advice will save your white laundry, and you will see that this pill can even compete with the industrial stain removing and bleaching agents.

So, what can you do to remove the stains and avoid that repelling grayish color of white clothes, and restore their freshness?

You may be surprised, but you can do all this with an ordinary aspirin pill.

Fill a container with 2 gallons of hot water, and dissolve 5,300 mg of aspirin pills.

The best way is to crush them in smaller pieces for quicker dissolving. Put your white clothes in the solution, and let them soak overnight.

The next day, put the clothes in your washing machine together with several aspirin pills, to get their original white color. If you follow these small steps, the results will amaze you.

What’s more, you will see that this trick is more effective than both, commercial stain removals and bleaches, as it removes all the stains and dirt without damaging the fabric.

Once you try it, you will definitely use it all the time.

If you enjoyed this post, I’d be very grateful if you’d help it spread by emailing it to a friend, or sharing it on Pinterest. Thank you! <3 The post appeared first on . ]]>

DIY CURL CREAM APPLY THIS HOME MADE CREAM FOR A WEEK AND GET THE RESULT

An all natural DIY curl cream that uses pure aloe vera gel, coconut oil, and shea butter to give you the healthiest, bounciest curls you’ve ever had! If you have curly or wavy hair, this DIY curl cream recipe will be right up your alley!

Instead of saturating your hair with store bought creams and mouses that are loaded with drying alcohols and chemicals, this homemade curl cream is an amazing alternative that works just as well but without all the gunk!

We used all natural aloe vera gel, coconut oil, and shea butter to make this luscious curl enhancing cream.

Aloe vera gel is a natural gel and therefore works really great instead of an actual store bought hair gel. Aloe vera is also super moisturizing and healing, so if your tresses are stressed, this DIY curl cream will heal damaged strands as well. Coconut oil encourages healthy hair growth, hydrates dry scalp and hair, and also detoxifies. Shea butter adds shine and lush to drab locks and also makes sure moisture stays put.

All three of these ingredients combined make for a kick-ass curl cream that you’ll love using day after day!

You’ll Need:

2 tbsp aloe vera gel

2 tbsp coconut oil

2 tbsp shea butter

Directions:

Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl until well incorporated.

Apply to wet hair starting from the middle of the head and running all the way down to the ends.

As you do this, twist the hair around your finger to encourage courls.

Air dry or blow dry and style as usual.

Use this after every shower for beautiful, natural and bouncy curls!

We live in an ecosystem full of all kinds of species. Some live pretty far from what we call our society, others, however, are in constant contact with us and they can be very annoying. Some of the most common ones are mosquitoes and cockroaches.

The pesky mosquitoes are everywhere and are not only annoying, but they also represent a health risk because they are carriers of an infinite number of diseases due to their contact with human blood and other debris from the streets or places with poor hygiene. Speaking of hygiene, mosquitoes or flies in general are on sites where they can get food and put their offspring, usually in dirty places or with standing water, but to remove them is actually the real problem.

So, that’s why, here, we’re presenting you a natural remedy that will help you get rid of the mosquitoes and flies in an effective way.

There are many products on the market that claim to help you do this but all chemicals have certain side effects that should be avoided in our life, so this natural remedy is the best choice for you.

Ingredients:

½ a cup of vegetable oil

½ a cup of shampoo

½ a cup of natural vinegar (this should be of 9% concentration)

How to make:

Mix all the ingredients very well and make sure you get a homogeneous mixture. Then, put the homogeneous mixture in a spray bottle so you can then spray all the areas where you want these hateful and pesky mosquitoes or flies to disappear. You can use this remedy in the rooms without any problems because it is completely natural, in addition and you can also use it in the garden or even apply it on your skin to make it work as a natural repellent!

Acne is a long-term skin disease that occurs when hair follicles become clogged with dead skin cells and oil from the skin. To make skin perfect there are many products in the market which claims that it will fulfill our skin requirements and without knowing our skin type & requirements, we started to use that. There are many over the counter medicine and other products in the market which claim the eradication of acne. But we know every prescribed medicine comes with along some side effects like redness, dryness, itchy skin etc. So, if you want to remove the problems from the root, you should go for a permanent solution by giving the natural blessing to your skin. If you are a DIY person then you should give a must try to your skin of DIY acne gel which is made up of essential oils which are the main ingredient that will target our requirements.

Now, let’s have a look at why and what ingredients we are using to make DIY acne gel.

Procedure of DIY Acne Gel

Ingredients

7 tablespoon aloe vera gel (buy from here)

10 drops of lavender essential oil (buy from here)

5 drops of tea tree essential oil (buy from here)

1-2 drops of cinnamon essential oil (buy from here)

an air-tight glass container (because of essential oils)

Steps to make DIY acne gel

Take a bowl and put fresh or organic aloe vera gel in it. I have taken green coloured aloe vera gel. You can take normal transparent(white) aloe gel.

Add all essential oils into it and mix well.

Keep it in an air-tight glass container. You can store it for 15-20 days.

How to apply DIY acne gel

Cleanse your face with your facial cleanser.

Now put your clean face towel in handheld hot water and soak it.

Wring out the face towel, and place the hot cloth over your face for a couple of minutes.  This will open pores to make the gel go inside the pores and heals acne from inside.

Now apply your DIY acne gel. The Cinnamon and lavender oil will help to reduce the enlarged pores and also control the production of skin oil.

If needed, apply moisturizer when the gel has completely penetrated into the skin.

Apply this DIY acne gel twice or thrice in a day after cleansing your face.

Notes

– Be sure to do a patch test to make sure your skin does not have an adverse reaction to the oils. The inner forearm is – a great place to do a test since the skin is delicate, similar to facial skin.

– Additionally, pregnant women, infants, and young children should avoid certain essential oils. so be sure to do your homework beforehand.

-keep the DIY acne gel container away from sunlight.

Stretch marks are unaesthetic marks that usually appear in areas with fat deposit, such as abdomen or hips, after a sudden weight loss. Over time they turn from pink or red to white.

There are many ways of getting rid of stretch marks. On one hand, you can opt for laser treatments, which diminish the marks. However, they are quite expensive and the results are influenced by the type of the skin and the ‘age’ of the scars. On the other hand, you can choose from a variety of effective homemade remedies that are much cheaper.

Cocoa butter

Cocoa butter helps you combat and prevent the stretch marks. Apply cocoa butter with regularity and you will soon notice that your stretch marks have diminished and your skin is smoother.
