I usually keep my dish soap in an old hand sanitizer bottle, but ever since I cleaned my sink, it just wasn't fitting the prettiness bill for me anymore. So, while searching for a way to make something better, I came across this excellent tutorial. I was able to just use what I had on hand: a canning jar and lid, and the pump from the old sanitizer bottle. I think it turned out beautifully, and I love looking at it, knowing it was made from very simple materials.
Another find was an idea I first discovered here, which led me to a recipe of sorts for homemade citrus cleaner. I'm hoping this will help with those hard water deposits I'm always battling around here. Every time I use a lemon, lime, or orange, I peel it first and put the peelings in a jar of white vinegar that's sitting on the windowsill above the kitchen sink.
And just for fun, here's a recent look at my vanilla extract, which is coming along nicely. I've gotten in the habit of taking a few good swigs of it when I'm having one of "those days." (nah, just kidding!) It smells really yummy, though!
Do you have projects in the works these days, too?
