Little Things - Day 2

Okay...I'm back with little things day 2. Today, I've been thinking about weeds, specifically those weeds that grow in the cracks in the sidewalks and patio. Last year, I used a commercial weed killer, but I felt really squidgy about it. More and more, I'm leaning toward far more natural and less dangerous methods. I don't want to do anything that could track inside and hurt my family or my dog.

So...what to do? What to do?

A weed killer that's not dangerous right? Maybe one that's cheap and easy to make at home?

Here you go:

Handy-dandy Sidewalk Weed Killer

2 cups white vinegar
1 Tablespoon salt
1 Tablespoon liquid soap
1 spray bottle

All you do is combine everything in the bottle then spray the heck out of those weeds. Be very careful not to get it on your yard. It will kill your grass and keep things from growing back for awhile.

Enjoy making your house into your happy place!

May favorite is the lavender vanilla from Bath and Body Works. I did both sides of the pillows. After a few minutes, the blankets then comforter went on the bed. I spritzed the comforter for good measure too. There's nothing like getting into a clean, fresh smelling bed to promote good sleep. And that good sleep is …
