Smart Tips Tuesday

Some believe in settling things the old fashioned way. There's no reason to get down and get dirty but when you are dirty...
you could make your own soap.....

Tip: Leave bar soap by the sink. BECAUSE: Most liquid soap comes in nonrenewable plastic packaging. Substituting one bottle with a bar in each U S home would keep 2.5 million pounds of plastic out of landfills. If you are using antibacterial soaps, just use a pretty glass or metal container instead.
Check out the cookie jar in the corner.....way, cool!

Can I give you a hand with those dishes? Aren't these the cutest little hand soaps?
Making soap has become very popular and especially now with 'green' being all the rage. You can stop over at Mother Earth News and see how to make homemade soap.
