Wash Your Hands

When we were on Tybee Island, we went to a few places that wanted to hit us up for a quarter-C ($25) for a jar of Hand Scrub. Today, special just for you, Baby-Doll (Bahamas in-joke for Mom and Sara), I give you a recipe for it. You can get as fancy as you want. This one is my favorite, because I have all the ingredients in my pantry. There are more, more, more recipes at Natural Homeremedies For Life.

Hand Scrub

  • 10 tablespoons coarse Kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons Baking soda
  • 5 tablespoons extra virgin Olive oil

I might add a drop of vanilla, because I like it.

I’m posting today at The Write Type about Mermaid Cottages’ Getaway Giveaway and the importance of a sense of place in your writing. Tomorrow, I’m going to Louisville for my monthly meet-up with the fabulous Jane, but I’ll post here before I leave.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, Imma go make some springerles and fruitcake. Mmmmm!

WRITING PROMPT: How do-it-yourselfy is your main character? Does he or she know anybody who makes his or her own anything?

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
