DIY Lotion Fabric Softener. I want to be clear that I ABSOLUTELY AM NOT suggesting you BUY lotion to make this. HOWEVER, if you're like me and you have some lotion collecting dust, maybe you should give this a try. See, I liked the smell, I just didn't like it as lotion. I used a 1:1:2 ratio of lotion, white vinegar & WARM water. I just put it straight in a jar with a lid & gave it a good shake. It will seperate so shake before use. As for amount & how to use - use the same as you normally use/add your fabric softener. I used Juniper Breeze from BandBW which does not make cheap fabric softener, but is better than throwing it away. I use it on my sheets & towels & love the way they smell;)

They used to use urine to tan animal skins, so families used to all pee in a pot & then once a day it was taken & Sold to the tannery.......if you had to do this to survive you were "Piss Poor" But worse than that were the really poor folk who couldn't even afford to buy a pot......they "didn't have a pot to piss in" & were the lowest of the low The next time you are washing your hands and complain because the water temperature isn't just how you like it, think about how things used to be. Here are some facts about the 1500s: Most people got married in June because they took their yearly bath in May, and they still smelled pretty good by June.. However, since they were starting to smell . ...... . Brides carried a bouquet of flowers to hide the body odor. Hence the custom today of carrying a bouquet when getting Married. Baths consisted of a big tub filled with hot water. The man of the house had the privilege of the nice clean water, then all the other sons and men, then the women and finally the children. Last of all the babies. By then the water was so dirty you could actually lose someone in it.. Hence the saying, "Don't throw the baby out with the Bath water!" Houses had thatched roofs-thick straw-piled high, with no wood underneath. It was the only place for animals to get warm, so all the cats and other small animals (mice, bugs) lived in the roof. When it rained it became slippery and sometimes the animals would slip and fall off the roof... Hence the saying "It's raining cats and dogs." There was nothing to stop things from falling into the house. This posed a real problem in the bedroom where bugs and other droppings could mess up your nice clean bed. Hence, a bed with big posts and a sheet hung over the top afforded some protection. That's how canopy beds came into existence. The floor was dirt. Only the wealthy had something other than dirt. Hence the saying, "Dirt poor." The wealthy had slate floors that would get slippery in the winter when wet, so they spread thresh (straw) on floor to help keep their footing. As the winter wore on, they added more thresh until, when you opened the door, it would all start slipping outside. A piece of wood was placed in the entrance-way. Hence: a thresh hold. In those old days, they cooked in the kitchen with a big kettle that always hung over the fire.. Every day they lit the fire and added things to the pot. They ate mostly vegetables and did not get much meat. They would eat the stew for dinner, leaving leftovers in the pot to get cold overnight and then start over the next day. Sometimes stew had food in it that had been there for quite a while. Hence the rhyme: Peas porridge hot, peas porridge cold, peas porridge in the pot nine days old. Sometimes they could obtain pork, which made them feel quite special. When visitors came over, they would hang up their bacon to show off. It was a sign of wealth that a man could, "bring home the bacon." They would cut off a little to share with guests and would all sit around and chew the fat. Those with money had plates made of pewter. Food with high acid content caused some of the lead to leach onto the food, causing lead poisoning death. This happened most often with tomatoes, so for the next 400 years or so, tomatoes were considered poisonous. Bread was divided according to status. Workers got the burnt bottom of the loaf, the family got the middle, and guests got the top, or the upper crust. Lead cups were used to drink ale or whisky. The combination would Sometimes knock the imbibers out for a couple of days. Someone walking along the road would take them for dead and prepare them for burial.. They were laid out on the kitchen table for a couple of days and the family would gather around and eat and drink and wait and see if they would wake up. Hence the custom of holding a wake. England is old and small and the local folks started running out of places to bury people. So they would dig up coffins and would take the bones to a bone-house, and reuse the grave. When reopening these coffins, 1 out of 25 coffins were found to have scratch marks on the inside and they realized they had been burying people alive... So they would tie a string on the wrist of the corpse, lead it through the coffin and up through the ground and tie it to a bell. Someone would have to sit out in the graveyard all night (the graveyard shift.) to listen for the bell; thus, someone could be, saved by the bell or was considered a dead ringer. And that's the truth....Now, whoever said History was boring
I've made this.., it turned out pretty good although I like my wine sweet, great conversation starter when you have guests over, Let them try a glass and see what they think. ~ Making homemade wine from grape juice is quite simple, and requires very inexpensive supplies. The following is a step-by-step on making homemade wine from frozen non-citrus juice concentrates. The neat thing about making wine from concentrates is the consistency of the flavor, and the variety of tasty wines you can produce. Local markets stock a great variety of frozen juice concentrates these days that can make a delicious inexpensive wine. For a red wine choose purple grape, pomegranate, cherry or strawberry juice, and for a white wine choose a white grape, pineapple, mango or apple juice. Frozen juice wines taste very good and mature with pretty high alcohol content for just a few dollars a bottle. With the many new flavors on the shelves, you could try several blends for a wonderful and tasty wine- yum… Gather all these ingredients: 3 cups white granulated sugar 1 packet bread-making yeast 1 can frozen juice concentrate (non-citrus) Water Clean gallon jug Balloon Rubber band Small funnel Follow these simple steps: Defrost the frozen juice by letting the container sit in a bowl of warm water for an hour. Purify a gallon milk jug with bleach and rinse very well. Pour the yeast, sugar and concentrated juice into the milk jug with the funnel. Shake the ingredients together. Fill the rest of the milk jug with warm (not hot!) water. This will activate the yeast. Put the lid on the jug and shake the ingredients together. Then take off the lid. Slide the balloon over the top of the milk jug and wrap the rubber band around the neck of the milk jug and the balloon to secure the balloon through the fermentation and wine-making process. Set the wine in a dark, warm place, at around 70 degrees. The balloon will fill with gases as the juice ferments. This is how you know the process is working. After three to 6 weeks the balloon will deflate and the process is complete. If you see sediment that you would rather not keep, pour your homemade wine into a bottle using a small funnel and a coffee filter to clarify- enjoy
