Five Things You’re Probably Not Doing With Five Things You Probably Have

Second thing: Table Salt. I know you have this; no excuses.

Here’s five things you can do:

  1. dump a teaspoon or so on the bottom of that pot while you’re scrubbing it to add scouring power.
  2. pour one cup into your waste disposal and start the water and the motor to freshen and remove deposits.
  3. Amazing stain remover (like on those pit-stains). 2 tablespoons salt to 1 cup hot water.
  4. body scrub: salt alone or mixed with an essential oil and olive oil to scrub your body in the tub.
  5. apparently it absorbs oil. pour some into that oily pan before washing, wait a few minutes and then scrape into the waste.

So, you know how when you begin entering your search terms into google, it shows you a drop down box with possible options? I was having trouble remembering some of the things you can use salt for, so I began to google  household things you can do with salt. By the time I had typed in  household things, here’s what the drop down box showed.

household things that get you high

household things to smoke

Next up: A Shameless Plug That I Really Should Be Getting Paid For.

Today’s shameless plug goes out to Zenni Optical. This is it people. If you’ve ever had to buy prescription eyeglasses before, then you certainly know what it feels like to be robbed in broad daylight, with your consent. Consenting to robbery is ridiculous. Last time I bought glasses, the doc had a “great sale” where the lenses were free, and I walked out with $180 dollar glasses. Robbery. This time, I bought a pair of prescription sunglasses for $22 including shipping and tax.

Pro’s: Really really cheap glasses that are still excellent quality.

Con’s: Shipping time (anywhere from 2-8 weeks), you can’t actually try on the glasses, so you have to know your face measurements (based on how your old glasses fit you), and you have to have a copy of your prescription. The prescription part was easy, if you don’t remember what yours was, just call your doctor–they have to give it to you.

Best part: knowing that if I wanted to, I could literally buy a pair of glasses to go with every outfit in my wardrobe and still spend less than I did the first time.

Also best part: not worrying about breaking or losing glasses anymore.
