I don't know if I'll use another facial cleaner ever again. I'm sold on this one! To make & use: Mix 2 Tbsp honey to 1 Tbsp baking soda. Mix into a paste. Gently apply to face and leave for 1-2 min. Rinse off with warm water and cloth.
A box of Angel Food Cake mix (just the contents of the box, no need to follow the directions on the box), and combine it with a 20 ounce can of crushed pineapple in its own juice. (No need to use a mixer, just stir it by hand) When you do this, something magical happens. The mixture starts to froth and it turns into an amazingly airy, fluffy bowl of deliciousness right before your eyes. Once it's all mixed up, simply pour it into a 9 x 13 baking dish and bake it at 350 for 30 minutes

Is Your Baking Soda or Powder Expired? To test baking soda, add 1/4 teaspoon of vinegar to 1/4 cup of very hot water. Then, add 1/4 teaspoon baking soda.

homemade watercolor paints, they're solid
Combine 3 tablespoons each of the baking soda, cornstarch and vinegar and add 1 1/2 teaspoons of the corn syrup/sugar substitute. Allow the fizzing to subside and mix completely. Pour the mixture into whatever you'd like to use to hold your paints. I bought a $2 paint tray at Michaels, but you can also use a plastic egg carton. Add the food coloring to create your desired palette and leave out to harden for three hours. Make sure you add the food coloring relatively quickly; the mixture actually starts to solidify almost right away.
