Marianne has another batch of  Helpful Hints:

  • Naturally deodorize your house: In a spray bottle combine 1/8 cup baking soda & 2 cups water;  mix with 10 drops of your favorite scented oil; shake up and spritz in air around house
  • Eliminate shocks in your house:  In a spray bottle combine 1/2 water and 1/2 liquid fabric softener; lightly mist carpet and let dry

Be sure to stock up on spray bottles - you never know when you're going to need to use one of Marianne's hints!  Do you have a problem with odors or shocks in your house?  Let us know and leave your comments if these hints worked for you.

And while you're combining these mixtures, take a look at this cute video of a puppy that has a slight problem with static electricity!
