First up, homemade fabric softener.
I'd seen this formula on several different pin boards, and when Suave conditioner was on sale, I picked up a bottle. Here's my version:
The original pin:
I was underwhelmed by this stuff, frankly. I had a hard time getting it to mix completely, resorting to the microwaving the mixture in the mason jar a couple minutes to get it to dissolve. It smelled great, when the wash was done in the washing machine, but by the time the clothes went through the dryer, I couldn't smell anything. Also, the static cling was horrible. So, a miss.
Next, shower cleaner said to remove all soap scum. Here's my version:
The original pin:
I was pleased with how this works. It doesn't get the hard water stains, but it did remove the soap scum. I have only used it once, and the mixture had separated a bit in the bottle while it sat idle. I'm wondering if I need to reheat it again before I use it...
While we're cleaning the shower, I loved this shower scrub mixture from Martha. I've actually used it a several times now. (Sorry, no photo, I've got to mix some more up!)
I did add a half cup of Kosher salt to my mixture (idea from a different recipe I'd tried), and cut down on the essential oil from my first batch. It was way too strong the first time!
Finally a home run. Homemade mint chocolate chip ice cream, no ice cream freezer required. Here's my version:
and Cheryl's infinitely better photography:
The recipe is simple, sweet, but not too sweet. I did stir things up in the container about 3 hours after I popped it in the freezer. The chocolate chips had sunk to the bottom. I was too impatient to chop mine as fine as Cheryl had.
How about you? Anything you have found through Pinterest that you've tried lately?
