Uses for Baby Shampoo

It is always good to find multi-uses for the products we buy.  Baby shampoo is gentle, safe and inexpensive.  Following are some interesting uses:
1.  Hand wash.  Fill a soap dispenser with 1 part baby shampoo and 2 parts water, swirl.   Wash away germs and keeps skin soft.
2.  Eye make-up remover.  Apply baby shampoo to a cotton pad and gently rub on eyelids.  Wipe with warm damp cloth.  Will not irritate eyes.
3.  Hair brushes.  Place hair brushes and rollers in a jar with warm water and 1 tbsp. of baby shampoo and soak overnight.  Rinse in the morning.
4.  Soap scum.  Mix together 1 tbsp of baby shampoo and a dash of baking soda.  Apply with a sponge to soap scum in the tub or shower.
5.  Swimming masks.  Put 1 drop of baby shampoo on a swim mask and rub with fingers, then rinse.  Your mask will stay fog free.

I am not sure anything happens on the post about ordering pizza in 2015.  It was about all of our personal information being spread all over and it is scary how it happens.  I guess that is a negative of the computer age.
Visit kathrynalbrecht.com for more scary information.  She recommends using startpage.com rather than google because google really spreads all information they get.

White Chocolate Strawberries

Chocolate covered strawberries are wonderful but so are white chocolate strawberries.  These are actually dipped in vanilla flavored almond bark.  It melts nicely in the microwave.  Let the strawberries dry completely after washing so the coating will stick properly.

 The test of love is that love never fails.
Love is kind and does not envy. Love does not parade itself and is not puffed up. Love does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil. Love rejoices in truth. Love endures all things.
Love never fails.
How wonderful to find that love that never fails in a human but it is a sure thing that the love of God never fails. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Spring cleaning is just around the corner. Something about warmer weather makes us want to get moving and brighten up our homes.
Don't be hesitant to get rid of things! You will feel so much better when there is less clutter around and if you can take it to a resale shop you might be able to make some extra money.
KIDS AND ADULT CLOTHES that are too small - sell, give to a charity or throw out. When you buy a new one get rid of an old one.
HOLIDAY ITEMS - try to avoid buying at holiday time until you check what you have from the past. It is easy to get wrapped up in the atmosphere but if you already have too much you need to use what you have or throw out. Keep it simple and don't waste a lot on decorations.
TOYS - if it is broken or you child is too old for it get rid of it. Keep an area near the back door with hooks, shelves and baskets for the kids to store their things. Make them responsible. Expect them to pick up and keep their things in a certain place.
BUYING BULK - Sam's and Costco's are great but if you don't have room don't buy too much bulk. Buy things that you use up quickly. Know what you have so you don't duplicate.
Set a a certain amount of time each day to tackle the cluttered areas started with the worst area. Put in a pile things that go in another room and then put it away or if it is something that isn't being used get rid of it.
