Practical Tip of the Week:
If you have kids returning from college for the holidays or if out of town guests will soon be arriving at your doorstep, then this would be an ideal time to freshen up the bed linens and towels that haven't been used in months.
Toss the linens in the laundry so that they will be ready when your guests arrive tired from their journey. Add a few drops of pure lavender essential oil to your laundry detergent to help your guests fall into a peaceful sleep. Be wary of using any scents if allergies or sensitivities are an issue. If you would like to make your own Vinegar Laundry Rinse, check out this link for the ingredients.
Grubby shower curtains could probably also stand a run through the washing machine. If the shower curtain liner is ripped or unsightly beyond repair, consider investing in a new one (they are fairly inexpensive) and use the old one as a tarp for painting or other household projects.
