We went to one of our favorite coffee shops in our neighborhood in Daegu and they had changed decor.  I immediately noticed these cute hanging plants and their “pots”.  I have not tried to make one, but it looks simple enough and it’s a great way to recycle old light bulbs.

I just had to share, because it is a very clever idea!

Enjoy!

Did you know that there is a better and cheaper way to clean your fruits and veggies?  I don’t know about you, but I am a bit strict when it comes to washing what we eat, especially produce and since just rinsing them under running water does not completely take away all the “junk”, I had to find a simpler and more frugal solution. After much research and consideration I decided to make my own and it is fabulous!image

What you need:

  1. A clean spray bottle
  2. 1 cup of water
  3. 1 cup of white vinegar
  4. 2 tablespoons Baking Soda
  5. 10 drops Lemon Essential Oil
  • Begin adding water to your spray bottle
  • Add Vinegar
  • SLOWLY add the Baking Soda.  The reaction of the vinegar and soda will result in foaming, so please, go slow and carefully.  (Kids have fun doing this! Great Science lesson!)
  • Add Lemon Essential Oil
  • Cover and shake well.
  • Store in a dry, dark place.  Always shake well before use.

To Use:

  • Spray fruits and vegetables
  • Let them sit for about 3-5 minutes (Note: I let soft skinned fruit sit a bit longer)
  • Rinse well
  • Store

imageimageI have a habit of washing our produce as soon as we get it and then store it in the fridge ready to go.  It’s very useful for when my daughter wants to grab a fruit snack.  All she has to do is go to the fridge and grab what she wants.

I have heard that this solution does not work with mushrooms.  I cannot say for sure, since I am an anti-mushroom freak.

Enjoy!

As we work on production, packaging and labeling we thought we should go ahead and give you a sneak peek to some of the items that will be featured in our store.  Our list of products is huge, but as two homeschooling mammas we must start with some of our favorites and then work down the list.  So, for now we hope you enjoy what we have in store for you!  Feel free to send us feedback or questions by filling out the form below!
