Did you know that rinsing your hands with apple cider vinegar after using harsh cleaners or doing a day of yard work will leave your hands feeling really good? If your hair is dull or listless from summer sun, just rinse it with a tablespoon of white vinegar stirred into a cup of warm water. If will leave your hair shiny and fluffy. It will feel squeaky clean.

Have smelly hands from handling fish or onions? Besides apple cider vinegar rubbed into your hands, washed normally and rinsed thoroughly, there are other products to use. For instance, you can cut a lemon in half and rub it on your hands, followed up by soap and water. You can also pour some sugar into the palm of your hand and add a few drops of liquid detergent to wash those odors away. The fourth option would be to sprinkle some baking soda into your wet hands and scrub vigorously and rinse.

Don’t know what to do with your empty spaghetti jars? I do. Soak the labels off and wash and rinse the jars and use them for iced tea or Kool-Aid glasses. They are heavy duty and hold just enough ice and your choice of a summer beverage. I also use them for leftover storage containers.
