Have you ever spent time on Pinterest, looking at the life hacks and thinking that maybe, you, too, could DIY? I wish that wrapping a bandana around my head made me a crafty superhero, but I really struggle with the whole MacGyver-esque world of Do-It-Yourself. I recently got to try a few products, though, that have made a few things easier for me, and I wanted to share them with you!
If you only get one multi-purpose product, you need Castile Soap. I'm pretty sure you can do everything cleaning-wise with this, depending on how you dilute it. It can be used to wash your clothes, clean your floors, do your dishes, wash your hair, and give the dog a bath, etc, etc, etc.
Tri-Nova's Castile Soap is clear, thin, odorless, made in the USA with natural ingredients, and is cruelty-free. I do like scented soaps, but this way, I can use it for pretty much anything I want and not have to worry about a scent. Plus, if you want a scent, you can add a different one for each application!
textured silicone egg that I love, and when I add a few drops of Castile soap, it cleans just about everything off in just a few scrubs. I like that TriNova Castile Soap leaves my brushes soft, unscented, and residue-free.
Tri-Nova's huge 32 oz bottle of Castile Soap on Amazon for $17.97.
I paint my nails all the time, but I consider it a mini-spa pampering thing if I do the whole manicure with the cuticle treatment. It feels good to me to apply all the balms and creams, push back my cuticles, trim the hangnails, and file and shape my nails.
I recently visited my father who has always hated doing nail care, and I gave him a manicure. I couldn't believe the difference it made to trim his nails and push back his eponychium and hyponychium with the Got Glamour cuticle pusher. My dad is unwell, and staying in a rehab facility. It was a nice bonding moment to do his nails for him, too.
If you're tired of the plastic pushers not doing a good enough job, and you've found large scoop metal pushers too unwieldy, you might like this handy tool from Got Glamour. It's currently available on Amazon for $15.49.
Got Glamour won me over with their quality cuticle pusher, and they really outdid themselves with these shears.
These hair-cutting shears are made in the USA from Cobalt Molybdenum that is sharp, quiet, and keeps its edge up to 5x longer than stainless steel. If you want to try your hand at hair cutting or pet grooming at home, you might love these shears from Got Glamour! They're currently available at Amazon for $34.95.
Charcoal Powder might be the weirdest, yet most useful DIY thing I've gotten to try. It's made from sustainable bamboo, and comes double-sealed in a plastic bag. I may transfer some to smaller bags or a jar, because this stuff is powdery and a bit of a mess.
