19. Homemade Weed Killer
Warning, this stuff actually works, so keep it away from your lawn, flowers, and other plants. It will kill them, too! It’s best used for sidewalk cracks or mulchy areas. If you spray it when the sun is out, it has an even better effect. Goodbye, weeds!
20. Homemade Cooking Spray
Over-priced cooking spray is a thing of the past! And have you read the ingredients on those cans? Propellant? That can’t be good. If I had known homemade cooking spray was this easy, I would have done this years ago. It’s so much healthier and cheaper than the store-bought stuff.
Mix together 1 part oil (canola or olive) and 5 parts water in a misting spray bottle, shake before each use, and then spray. You can also label the bottle if you’d like for the finishing touch.
21. Homemade Foot Soak
There’s nothing better than sitting down to relax after a long day, especially if you’ve been on your feet for countless hours, and you might as well soak your feet while you’re at it! I’ve heard many great things about Epsom salt, but the idea behind this foot soak is that it draws impurities and toxins out of your body.
Mix the epsom salt, baking soda, and lavender essential oil together in a container you plan on storing it in, and use about 1/4 of the mixture in as warm of water as you can handle each time you soak. I like to use one of those disposable baking pans (although I reuse it over and over), and fill the bottom with marbles. Now that feels good! If you’re making this as a gift, don’t forget to give it a pretty label!
