Household Hints - Save time, save money, save energy

To make your own liquid hand soap, you need one (3.5 ounce) bar of soap (choose soap which contains moisturizing cream) and three cups of water. Grate soap, add water and microwave on high until well dissolved. Stir every two minutes. Cool and pour into a dispenser.

Change the color of cut flowers by adding a little food coloring to warm water and placing stems in the solution. Use light-colored blooms and not too much coloring.
