Super Helpful Sponge Hacks

When we think about using an everyday sponge, our minds usually go directly to cleaning. However, did you know about all the other amazing sponge hacks there are out there? From cleaning to storing your jewelry....there's a hack for all!

Sponges Aren't Just for Cleaning! Check out All These Hacks!
  1.  Pin Cushion - Store with sewing items and use as a cushion for sewing pins.
  2. Protect your walls - Trying to remove nails can leave dents and marks on your walls. Instead, try placing a sponge below the nail when you use your hammer to prevent marks and scuffs.
  3. Microwave Cleaner - Cleaning your microwave has never been easier! Submerge your sponge in water and squeeze out excess. Slice a lemon in half and squeeze one-half of its juices on the sponge. Place in the microwave for 30 seconds and then wipe clean!
  4. Ring Holder - Using an old mint tin, cut your sponge to size and then place inside. Using a box cutter, make small slices in the sponge to fit rings.
  5. Ice Pack - Submerge your sponge in water, and squeeze out only 70% of water. Place the sponge into a ziplock bag and place in the freezer. Use as an ice pack for bumps and bruises or use as an ice pack to keep your lunch cool.
  6. Oven cleaner - Using a sharp knife, slice two slits into the sponge going vertically about 95% of the way through. Then slice 3 slits into the sponge going horizontally about 95% of the way through. Submerge the sponge into warm soapy water, squeeze it out, and start cleaning those oven grills!
  7. Bottle Cleaner - Slice your sponge in half, and then at the top of both ends, use a knife to create a slice to insert a small magnet into each. Use a hot glue gun to seal the sponge shut keeping the magnets in place. Drop one half into the bottle, and using the other outside the bottle.
  8. Nail Polish Remover - Cut your sponge in half and place both pieces into a mini-sized mason jar, ensuring you can still place the lid on top for storage. Once both pieces are in, fill the jar with nail polish remover and allow the sponges to absorb it. Place your fingers in there, wiggle them around, and voila! Nail polish removed!

8 Reasons You Should Try Smudging & How To Do It At Home

Smudging is an ancient art that is believed to have been practiced by Native Americans for centuries. It’s the name given to the ceremonial, daily act of cleansing and purification which uses a selection of herbs, often sage, which are bundled together with string to form a smudge stick before being ignited.

The smoke that’s emitted from the herb bundle is believed to cleanse negative energy and purify living spaces, as well as people and even objects like tools, furniture, and home decor. Similar to one washing their hands before a meal, it helps to cleanse a person in an energetic bath of aromatic smoke. It’s also believed to release negative ions, which has been linked in studies to a more positive mood and many other benefits. Negative ions are also created by the effects of sunlight and water – you’ve probably noticed a wonderful sense of calm when in nature, such as visiting a beach, waterfall or enjoying a walk in the woods.

In high enough concentrations, negative ions can clear the air of mold spores, pollen, pet dander, odors, cigarette smoke, bacteria, viruses, dust and other hazardous airborne particles.
