"Don't throw out that old shampoo - use it to clean the bathroom!! A friend that cleans houses advised me that shampoo is great for cleaning. Shampoo cuts grease, rinses clean and smells great too! Use on a toothbrush to clean grout, around the…"
"Okay, I may have had a little backsliding situation today. I am a totebag addict. Recently at a Ladies Night Out program (I was the MC), we gave away donated items. My local bank donated two gorgeous totes. Oh, how I wanted one, but I was not…"
"While a friend was hospitalized after a mental breakdown, another friend and I went to her home and cleaned for her. She was ready for it all to be gone, so we went in and really cleaned. I spent three hours in her bathroom. From that one bathroom I…"
"Gladys, I'm with you!! I can't read items without automatically proofreading them also. Our church bulletin is the worst. I can always spot errors. One of my pet peeves is like/lack. Is this a Southern problem only? I've heard…"
"Thank you for writing. You gave me a laugh when you talked about the poor lady finding more stuff on her free table!! That's priceless. I dare you to do it!! Hey, put the potpourri in a plastic bag and take to a nursing home. They need prizes…"
""And here's the main thing: I'm not letting that stuff in my house again"
I made a big decision yesterday. I've been in the hospital since Tuesday with pneumonia. When I started to leave, part of me wanted to bring home the…"
"There is no way, at this point, that I could throw out half-bottles of shampoo. I cleared out some drawers in my bathroom the other day, and I'm using the shampoo and then recycling the bottles.
I had even saved a bunch of tiny remains of bars…"
"that's a great idea! my mother-in-law is always giving us her little bottles when she goes on vacation. i use them in the shower and what i don't use (like the lotion, bars of soap, etc) i bag up and give to a local thrift store. they also…"
"I have been saving all the sample bottles as well. But the thing I have noticed is I never use them., even if they are in reach. I always grab for what I know works well for me. So, I am going to gather all them up and take them to the women's…"
"yes- it can be wasteful- what I did with all those shampoos was put into a large bottle and then used up as hand soap- if shampoo goes on your hair with your hands then it is safe to wash hands with.
I do not rinse them out- the hand lotions are ok…"
I have a little problem with this concept. Isn't this a little wasteful? What I suggest is that you put the little bottles in the shower and USE THEM UP!! That's what I've started trying to do with my many tubes of hand cream. I keep one by my bed and use it until it's gone. Then I bring out another one. Things cost so much these days to just throw them out willynilly. That's my opinion.
