Have you ever wondered how much water you should drink, per day.
Here's the simple way to figure it out:
Divide your weight in half. That's the number of ounces you should drink.
120 divided by 2= 60
Daily water intake should be 60 ounces.
PS: Have a hard time choking down all that H2O? Try slicing some fruit and tossing it in your water. It gives it a little flavor without all the calories or additives.
I hate watered down drinks. In the summer, I make iced tea ice cubes.
In an ice cubes tray, place a slice of lemon. Top with iced tea and freeze. Add a couple of these to your iced tea, to keep it cold and avoid that watered down drink.
You can also do this with other drinks. I have put berry slices in an ice cube tray, and topped with juice. I have also used cherries, which looks adorable. They are beautiful!
For grown up drinks, you can place an edible flower, a sprig of mint, a lemon, anything really, in the tray and top with water, freeze and use in mixed drinks.
Want to make those old towels soft again?
Or how about get rid of the chemicals in new towels?
OR, get rid of that slightly funky smell that towels tend to get?
I recommend using warm water cycles for this.
In your wash machine, add one cup of vinegar and one cup of baking soda. Run a normal cycle. When the cycle is finished, run a cycle of just water. Dry as usual. Your towels will be soft, absorbent and odor free.
Are you looking for a chemical free toilet cleaner? Check out these ideas!
1.) An effervescent denture cleaning tablet. -Before bed, drop a tablet in the toilet. Let it sit overnight for best results. The next morning, swish the toilet brush around, and viola! Clean toilet.
2.) A can of COKE. -simply dump a can of COKE in the toilet before bed. Again, let this sit overnight for best results. The next morning, give a light scrub with the toilet brush. This works great on mineral deposits.
3.) Lemon juice and baking soda. -Again, best results if left overnight. Add one cup of lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of baking soda. This is great on stains.
