DIY Face Scrub 
Recently, I ran out of honey for my normal DIY facial. I normally mix a tablespoon of honey   with a pinch a nutmeg, and a pinch of cinnamon. Both the honey and nutmeg are anti-inflammatory, and the cinnamon and nutmeg exfoliate the skin when you go to wash it off. However, with my new concoction, I can keep the dry, mixed ingredients in a container, and simply moisten a bit when I go to use it. It's also not only softened my skin, but also cleared it up. So, this is my new favorite DIY face scrub: DIY Face Scrub

1/4 cup baking soda
1 tbsp nutmeg
1 tbsp cinnamon

When you go to use it, just take a little bit in your hand (about 1 or 2 tsp of the dry mix). I add a bit of alcohol to kill bacteria in my skin, and enough water to just moisten all of it. Then, just take a bit at a time, and rub on your face. Once your whole face is covered (it's brown, so you can see even when it's thin), simply rinse off with warm water. It makes your face really soft, and blemishes seem to completely go down in just a few hours. It's a lot cheaper than buying face scrub at the store, and works better than anything I've ever gotten before.

DIY Household Cleaners

Cleaning products are expensive, and often aren't nearly as impressive as they'd have you believe. That's why I make my own cleaners. All of the recipes for household cleaners I found online were for at least a gallon of cleaner, and didn't contain as much bacteria-killing ingredients as I'd like. I'm a little paranoid about germs. So, I messed around until I came up with my own, that'll fit in small (8oz) bottles. You can make more, just use the same ratio of ingredients.

Window/Mirror Cleaner
1 cup alchol
1 tbsp baking soda
 (Yes, that's really all.)

Bathroom Cleaner
1/3 cup bleach
1/3 cup white vinegar
1/3 cup baking soda
1 tbsp laundry detergent (with NO ammonia)

All Purpose Cleaner
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup white vinegar
A couple drops of dish soap

It's really that easy! And these all work very well. You can use the all purpose cleaner mixed with a bit of hydrogen peroxide for carpet stains, too!!
