Keep Flowers Fresh
Receiving a bouquet of flowers from a loved one is one of the most wonderful experiences imaginable. It is, nevertheless, heartbreaking to see the flowers fade away so rapidly. Adding a teaspoon of baking soda to the water in the vase will help to keep them fresh for a little while longer.
Even though shower curtains are inexpensive, don’t be tempted to buy a new one every time your old one gets dirty. They’re usually composed of PVC, which is a very hazardous substance, and a new one can emit dangerous fumes, particularly when inhaled while in a scorching hot shower. Cleaning shower curtains is actually easier than you may think, and all you need is some laundry detergent, a cup of baking soda, ten drops of tea tree oil (to destroy any mildew), and some light-colored towels. Put the curtain, towels, and mixture in the washing machine on a 40-60 cycle and everything will come out considerably cleaner.
