a little here a little there

we all know about global warming and hopefully we're all doing our part to help mother earth. but learning new tips always helps so here are a few:

this is the best ever! it easily replaces my man and his snoring. all you do is boil some water on the stove and put it in a hot water bag (i don't know what it's called). you can buy it at your local drug store. since i live by the way of the frugals, i turn my heat off while i sleep since this puppy last all night! *make sure to not put directly on skin. i put this on my belly and the next morning i had a freckled belly which lasted for 2 months!

instead of buying bleach buy oxygen bleach a.k.a. hydrogen peroxide. hydrogen peroxide biodegrades fully into oxygen and water AND it removes stubborn stains. i bought mine at my local grocery store. i'm always mindful of what i throw down the drain or the toilet cause believe it of not, it ends up back in our taps. so if you do laundry or your parents still do it for you go out and get it.

keep your dishes clean and green with bio dish soap.

baking soda and vinegar replaces any type of cleaner you got in your cupboards. i use this stuff to declog my drains (just add boiling water). also great for cleaning bath tubs. *i would advise against using on too much baking powder when mopping since it leaves the floor all powdery.

try to get 100% recycled toilet paper. we use so much of this stuff in North America unlike the good ol' soap and water.

stop buying bottled water. instead opt for a reusable container

whenever possible, try reusing rubbish. i recycle my cereal boxes and others into backing for my prints and packaging for gifts. i'll post more on this for christmas wrapping.
