Quote for the Day:
"You can do anything, but not everything.:
I saw a "pin" where the person cut a piece of moleskin (used to protect and pad feet corns) and applied it to her bra. I thought I'd try it but first, I had to get a package of moleskin at Wallyworld.
You can find it in the foot care area and it costs less than $3.00 for a package that will last a long time. You cut the size you want, peel off the paper strip covering the adhesive side and press into place.
According to the blog I read online about it, the writer said it even lasts through multiple washings. :) An easy-peasy inexpensive fix! My favorite kind! :)
My next trial is actually two ideas put together. The first one is homemade fabric softener. This takes three ingredients: 3 cups white vinegar, 2 cups hair conditioner, and 6 cups water.
Heat the vinegar and mix it with the hair conditioner. (This conditioner was gotten for free with my couponing!) I used a whisk to get it thoroughly mixed. I then added the water and whisked some more. Again, since this is a trial, I only made half of a batch.
I put the mixture into a vintage Tupperware canister so that I could try the next "pin" I wanted to try...reusable fabric softener "sheets". (You can also add 1/8 - 1/4 cup of this solution directly to the rinse cycle of the wash, too, but since my laundry area is in the basement, I like the ease of dryer sheets.)
I have lots of plain, white, cheap wash cloths from Wallyworld. I use them for lots of things, including cleaning.
I took these three and dunked them into the mixture, wrung them out, and then hung them to dry above the dryer.
After they are dry I will throw one into the dryer with the wet clothes to "soften" the clothes and prevent static. From what I've read, each one is good for approximately 10 dryer loads before it needs to be re-dunked into the mixture. I'm anxious to try these and will let you know how they work and how long they seem to last.
