Borax, also known as sodium borate, is a natural mineral compound. Inexpensive, easy to find and readily available, borax can usually be found for as little as $1 per pound!
Borax’s most well-know purpose is as a laundry booster. Add 1/2 to 3/4 cup to your laundry along with your regular detergent to help remove stubborn stains and odors. Borax works by conditioning the water and controlling alkalinity.
Many parents use borax to soak soiled baby diapers and garments for better removal of stubborn stains and odors. For a soaking solution, mix 1/2 cup borax with 2 to 4 gallons of hot water.
Borax can also be used as an inexpensive, but effective, floor and surface cleaner. To make the cleaner, mix 1/3 cup of borax with 1 teaspoon of dishwashing detergent and 1 gallon of warm water in a large bucket.
Borax is also known for its odor-fighting properties, especially urine odors caused by pet or child accidents. Use borax to neutralize urine odors from mattresses, carpet and upholstered furniture. Simply dampen the affected area, sprinkle with borax, rub into the stain and let dry. Brush off or vacuum to remove the borax when dried. Be sure to test an inconspicuous area when using this method, particularly when using on carpet and furniture! This method also removes stubborn sour milk odors, too.
Make an inexpensive and effective scouring compound by mixing 1/4 cup borax, 1/4 cup baking soda and 1 1/2 cups of hot water. Stir well, and then use as you would a regular scouring powder. Borax alone can also be used as a cleanser, just sprinkle on a damp sponge or a soft cloth, scrub, then rinse. Borax, alone, may even be used on sensitive surfaces, such as fiberglass and porcelain, without scratching. Try using borax as a cleanser on aluminum cookware, it works great and won’t scratch!
Take advantage of borax’s odor-fighting properties; use it to defeat those offensive odors in refrigerators, disposals, humidifiers, kitchen drains, toilet bowls and trashcans.
For disposals and drains, sprinkle 2-3 tablespoons into drain or disposal, let stand for 20 minutes, and then flush with water.
To deodorize refrigerators, wipe the inside of the appliance down using a sponge or soft cloth and a solution of 1 quart water mixed with 1 tablespoon of borax, then rinse with cold water.
Deodorize your garbage cans, bins and dumpsters by rinsing with a solution of borax (1 tablespoon borax per quart of water), allow to air dry, then sprinkle 1/2 cup (or as needed to coat evenly) into the bottom of the receptacle.
To freshen your humidifier, fill the unit with this same solution of borax and water, allow to sit for 20 minutes, and then rinse well before using.
For toilet bowls, sprinkle 1/4 cup of borax into the bowl, swish with a toilet brush, let stand for at least 20 minutes (or overnight for stubborn problems), and then flush.  Borax has other uses as well.
To make a simple slime that your kids will love to play with, mix 1/2 cup water and 1 cup white glue in a glass or ceramic bowl. Add 4 drops of food coloring if desired. In a separate glass or ceramic bowl, dissolve 1/2 teaspoon borax into 1/2 cup water. Slowly stir the dissolved borax mixture into the white glue mixture to make slime. Store in a tightly sealed jar when not in use. Compare this inexpensive slime to the commercial brands, and you’ll see a real value!

To make your own dried flower arrangement, preserve your flowers using borax. Sprinkle borax into a small box, such as a shoe box, cut the flowers you wish to preserve to desired length, lay flowers (two per box) on the borax and completely cover with another layer of borax. Close the box tightly, taping closed if necessary. Allow the boxed flowers to sit at room temperature for one week, then strain off the borax and reveal your preserved flowers. Reuse the strained borax powder to dry additional flowers.

Kill roaches safely and effectively in your home. Mix equal parts of powdered sugar and borax, place in crevices, along walls, under appliances and in the back of cupboards. The roaches will eat this inexpensive "bait" and die. Although borax is safer than commercial poisons, always be sure to keep this mixture away from small children and pets!  Look for borax in your supermarket’s laundry aisle and start saving money today.

Vitamin C

The Miracle of Vitamin C

So what is so great about Vitamin C? After all, there must be a good reason that it is the most widely taken supplement. Of course, everyone has heard that Vitamin C can help reduce the length and severity of a cold, but did you know that it can also help ward off the Avian bird flu, help asthma sufferers cut down on corticosteroid medication, and may even slow down the aging process!
How much is TOO much?

While the U.S. RDA for the average person is 90 mg per day, there is much controversy about how much is too much. Linus Pauling, two time Nobel Peace Prize winner, recommended an average of 10,000 mg per day in his book How to Live Longer and Feel Better. This is generally regarded as too much by traditional medicine. However, Vitamin C is water soluble so there is no concern about it causing toxicity in the body. In fact, it is one of the least toxic substances there is.
Why Do We Need Vitamin C?

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is essential for several body functions. It is used in the production of collagen for connective tissues such as the skin, teeth and bones. It is also needed to help generate neurotransmitters dopamine, noradrenaline and adrenaline for a healthy nervous system. Since Vitamin C is an antioxidant, it plays a role in helping to prevent diseases such as cancer and atherosclerosis by neutralizing free radical damage.

It is also involved in helping the adrenals make corticosteroid hormones and, therefore, asthma sufferers may be able to decrease their corticosteroid medication when a high dose Vitamin C supplement is added to the diet. There is also evidence that viruses such as the common cold and even the Avian Bird Flu can be treated, or even prevented, with high dose Vitamin C supplements since they are thought to be caused by a deficiency in the vitamin. And a recent study in Japan revealed that Vitamin C may even help slow down the aging process! Vitamin C is truly one of nature's miracles!

Lina's Rose Hip Tea
Dried rose hips need to be boiled about 10 minutes
to make a tea of them; just pouring hot water over
them results in a fairly tasteless brew. Use 2 tbsp.
per pint of water, boil covered. The hips must expand,
split, and let the water get at the soft seeds within. The
resulting tea may be pinkish, depending on the type of
roses whose berries are used. The tea is acid-tasting,
but not as sharp as lemon juice. Some like it sweetened.
A half-teaspoon of dried mint may be added to give it a
different flavor. Purchased rosehips for tea you'll find
only the hardened dried shell of the berry. Boil that 15
minutes for your tea.
