I don't know about your kids, but handwashing reminding can sometimes get so frustrating but I have found that the "Foamy Soap" Dispensers are a"Big hit", and you don't have to continually buy these special kind of bottled liquid soaps, just re-use one with an easy recipe below and save money too!

  • Pour a few Tablespoons of Liquid Soap (Shampoo, Body wash or Dishwashing liquid can also be used) into a previously purchased/used Foaming Soap Dispenser Bottle
  • Fill with warm water (not completely to the top but leave a little room - an inch or so to work properly) screw on the lid/pump and gently shake.
  • Squirt a few times to get it started
**I also like to add a few drops of Lavender Essential Oil to it for an added fragrance bonus!
Once you have tried this, you find your not having to buy as much liquid soap as nearly as often! I am not sure why I didn't figure this out sooner :)

Wow, August is going by quickly and that means many fruits are falling off the vines from ripeness or just getting started such as apples. I recently came across this really helpful website that I hope may come in handy for you as well. 
Neighborhood Fruit helps people find and share fruit locally, both backyard bounty and abundance on public lands - 10,000 trees nationwide and counting!
Neighborhood Fruit was created to make use of the abundant fruit growing in our urban environments. Currently, the bulk of fruit grown in backyards and in our cities goes to waste, while the fruit we consume is grown in water-intensive orchards far from our homes.

Check out NEIGHBORHOOD FRUIT 'S Website to see if fruit is available in your area that you can use or for you to post for others if you have fruit available to share!
Happy picking!!
