It is week two of the Baking Soda weed experiment. Do you remember my Pinterest tip that spreading baking soda around will help keep weeds away? The baking soda changes the acidity of the soil so weeds don't grow. Want to take a look around? This area is usually a virtual weed bed, but there are only a few stragglers, here and there.
When I read about this tip on Pinterest, it said that baking soda can also stop grass from growing out of its intended area. I do not think the baking soda is helping here, as in this part of Florida we have St. Augustine grass (crab grass for you lovelies up north), it grows more like a vine so it can grow right over the top of the baking soda. But all in all I am happy so far with the experiment.
Remember baking soda can be harmful to animals, I was very, very careful with my Max.
Do you have tea stains in your cups? Well I have tried everything to get them out. Soaks in vinegar, scrubbing and scrubbing, until I just let them be. Yesterday as I was cleaning out my stainless steel sink with a steel wool pad, I grabbed my cup and washed it out. Three seconds later I had an almost stain free cup.
In true blog fashion I grabbed my camera and cleaned out another cup, taking pictures as proof. Really who else other than a blogger would take a picture of a tea cup stain.
Can you believe it? It is almost like new.
So I grabbed all of them and cleaned them all. As the cup says, It's Good To Be Queen, and the Queen likes her tea cups clean.
Have a great day.
