This week, I have deeply appreciated…
#1: My Homemade Fruit-fly Trap:
I waited one day too long to exterminate the few pesky fruit-flies that were bouncing around our counter-tops. They propagated. Like bunnies. No, like fruit-flies. Which is even worse. So, I whipped out my all-natural concoction to ruthlessly kill approximately 20 of them. (Shivers.)
The recipe: In a bowl, mix a swig of apple cider vinegar, red wine vinegar, and a squirt of dish soap. Let the stinky mixture sit on the counter-top overnight. In the morning, you’ll be disgusted (and happy) to dispose of your pests.
#2: Micro-fiber cloths!
Get a streak-free mirror without chemicals! Just spritz a little water on the mirror, wipe the surface with your micro-fiber cloth and you’ll be sparklingly proud of your environmentally friendly investment. Find yours in the cleaning isle of Wal Mart, Target, or other micro-fiber selling locations. AMAZING! (This is the cleaning secret that the chemical companies can’t talk about!)
#3: My “Ruble for Your Thoughts” toe-nails! I know it’s a bit unconventional to post photos of one’s toes online, but I just got a manicure and pedicure and love the sparkly autumn color on my toes. My newest statement of conviction is that I simply *must* get a pedicure every October to slough off my summer feet and ease into the cold weather (which came with vigor today!).
