Homemade Windex

HOMEMADE WINDEX. Thanks for your tips on using Windex to clean. I find that
a much cheaper but similar mixture can be made at home for only pennies.
Cleaners such as Windex rely upon three common ingredients: distilled water,
vinegar and ammonia. No matter what other additives a commercial product may add,
the real cleaning is done by combining 10 to 20 parts water, one part
vinegar and a scant amount of ammonia. Try starting with a mixture at 20 parts
distilled water. If you need it stronger, you can add more vinegar and ammonia.
Be cautious when handling and storing ammonia. Be sure to label the contents
clearly as containing ammonia and then store out of the reach of children.

Homemade Bath Salts

1. Fill glass, ceramic or metal 2 quart container with Epsom Salts.
2. Add 2 tsp essential oil and 2-6 drops food coloring to match the
scent you've chosen.
3. Stir ingredients until completely incorporated.
4. Seal Container and let sit overnight, stirring occasionally.
5. Place in decorative, sealed containers.
6. Tie with ribbon or raffia.
7. Add a scoop to the ribbon.

Note: For a fun twist, create an "
Ice Cream Soda" by packaging salts
in a cellophane bag. Place salt bag into the bottom half of a parfait
glass. Place a bath "poof" (those fluffy scrubber thingies) on the
top half of parfait glass (tuck the string underneath) - This is
the "
Whipped Cream". To complete the look, place a bendable (I use
colored) straw down the side of the parfait glass. Voile, a fun
homemade bath gift! This is a fun gift for kids to make and give.

If you watch the thrift stores, or go to garage sales, you typically
can find sundae and parfait glasses for a dime or a quarter each.
Even check on FREECYCLE.

You can also add
baking soda (about a heaping teaspoon) for a FROTHY

Hope you enjoy!
