I have a dear friend that takes wonderful photos and I begged her to come and photograph my garden…. I can’t even believe that these are from my backyard…..
I have blogged about this book, Who Knew? II, almost a year ago but I was using it recently and thought I would post some of the helpful hints that I came across…Now for the disclaimer bit….. I am not blogging for the authors or a company and the authors have compiled this information and if it doesn’t work, sorry!
I use a lot of their “hints” and they always work!! These were fun and I am sharing. I am awesome like that.

Susceptible to athlete’s foot….Once or twice a week, soak your feet in a hot bath with two cloves of crushed garlic mixed in. The garlic will kill the athlete’s foot before it starts
Did you know that 80 to 90 percent of energy used by a washing machine goes to heat the water? Wash your clothes in cold water unless you need to kill germs or get out a stain like red wine or oil…You will help the environment and save on heating costs.
Great all-purpose cleaner- Mix 1/2 cup of borax with 1 gallon of water.
Little tip that someone taught me!! — Do you have roaches? Sprinkle baking soda on the ground. When the roach eats it the soda expands and kills them… ALL NATURAL BUG KILLER
I hope you like some of those tips!
1/2 Cup Washing Soda (Arm and Hammer, but not baking soda)
1/2 Cup Borax
2 Gallon Bucket
1 Quart Hot Water
Mix grated soap in a saucepan with 3 pints of water, and heat on low until dissolved. Stir in Washing Soda and Borax. Stir until thickened, and remove from heat. Add 1 Quart Hot Water to 2 Gallon Bucket. Add soap mixture, and mix well. Fill bucket with hot water, and mix well. Set aside for 24 hours, or until mixture thickens. Stir occasionally. Store it in milk jugs or empty laundry soap containers, give it a good shake then pour.
Use 1/2 cup of mixture per load. Use the same amount in your front load washers as well.
It will be chunky. I actually use a little more than 1/2 cup when I wash, but it is cheap to make so not a big deal.
