Borax the 20 Mule Team

Up until about a year ago I really had no idea what Borax was even used for. My mother never used it and I don't remember my grandparents ever using it but I thought wow it has been around forever it must be useful for something right?? I found out that it could be used to make homemade laundry soap and I tried it out. I now LOVE making my own laundry soap and with the help of Borax my laundry gets cleaner than any commercially bought soap I have ever bought. It helps fight stains, removes odors and softens your hard water so that your clothing lasts longer. The best part to me is that Borax and their 20 Mule Team are all natural.
I you are interested in starting to make your own laundry soap you can check out the recipe for liquid soap HERE and powdered soap HERE. Not only will you have a better clean but you will save money in the process.

This stuff is amazing, I think you can use it for everything. We use it all the time but what shocked me most was using it to get rid of fleas. Love this stuff and will ALWAYS have it on hand at my house.

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol
