  TO DO This Week

TO DO This Week

____ 1. Clean your hairbrush. Hair and hair products, dead skin cells, dust mites, lint, and the natural oils from your hair build up on your hairbrush over time, so your hairbrush should be cleaned once a month at minimum. Pull out and discard the hair from your hairbrushes. (If needed, use a pair of tweezers or a fine-tooth comb to get it all.) Now, clean the brush.

For plastic hair brushes, mix 4 cups of hot water from the tap, one tablespoon of gentle shampoo, and one tablespoon of baking soda in a bowl. Put your brush in the bowl and soak for about 20 minutes. Then, use a clean toothbrush to scrub the base and bristles. Rinse under cool water and allow to dry on a towel.

If you have a wooden hairbrush, mix hot water from the tap with one tablespoon of gentle shampoo in a bowl. Dip your brush in and pull it right out. Don't soak it, as doing so may damage the wood. Then, use a clean toothbrush to scrub the base and bristles. Rinse under cool water and allow to dry on a towel with the bristles facing down.

____ 2. Challenge yourself to make three cookbook recipes. Pull one of your printed cookbooks off your shelf. Dust it off if it hasn't been referenced in awhile. Grab three index cards. Browse through your cookbook and tuck an index card in just three recipes that look good enough (and easy enough) to make. Use the ingredient lists for these recipes when writing up your next grocery list, shop for those groceries, and schedule days and times to make these three recipes. This is a good way to try something new, add some variety to your everyday meals, and gauge whether you actually like the meals from that cookbook enough to keep that cookbook on your shelf.

____ 3. Celebrate those serving your country. May 16th is Armed Forces Day in the United States. This day began in 1949 by President Harry S. Truman and honors members of every section of the military: Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force. Learn how to properly display the American flag. You'll find all the details about doing so on this link:
