Halloween/Party Tree Hangables
You first need white stockings with each leg cut. Here we used white glow sticks added to a water balloon before filling. You could use multiple colors or you can buy all green for a different effect. Tie the top of the nylon and hang from a tree. I would think this makes a great decoration for a night time party as well. Around the Fourth Of July you can find red, white and blue. Green would work for St. Patricks Day and multi-colored would work for a birthday. Sometimes you can find all of one color and these can be used for specific color themes.
10 Uses For Your Used Tea Bags
1. Sooth puffy and tired eyes – the most common use of tea bags.
Staring at a computer, reading, watching, almost everything we do daily challenges our eyes. Tea helps relieve redness and swelling and refreshes tired eyes. Put the tea bags in ice-cold water or simply pour on water and leave in the refrigerator. We suggest you use them at bedtime, while resting your eyes. This is pretty much all you need, with absolutely no cost.
2. Tea bags help with sweaty feet.
Soak your feet in luke warm tea prepared with used tea bags before bedtime for 15 minutes and wipe with a clean towel.
3. Minimize the effect of bruising.
Tannic acid, contained mostly in black tea, has the ability to restrict swelling by constricting the blood vessels. Apply a fresh, cooled bag of black tea on your trauma and leave for 20 minutes. For better results repeat once more during the day.
4. Tea bags are a remedy for minor sunburn.
Wet tea bags ease the pain of sunburns. If bigger areas of your body are affected, try to take a cool bath adding several tea bags to the water.
5. Tea bags help with razor cuts.
Wet tea bags sooth pain from razor cuts. Use a cooled tea bag to stop the bleeding and reduce skin damage with the helpful antioxidants found in tea.
6. Tea bags help with acne.
Wipe your face with used green tea bag. Before you rub a tea bag on your skin, wash and rinse the skin with a hypoallergenic cleanser. Apply the cooled tea bag on the skin and let it stand for 10-15 minutes. Rooibos tea is one of the best options for acne treatment. Rooibos, also known as Red Bush, is a plant native to South Africa and has been used in the local traditional medicine for centuries.
7. Tea bags help with oral hygiene.
Speed up the healing process of painful sores in your mouth by slightly biting onto a tea bag soaked in water.
8. Tea bags can freshen your breath.
Bad breath usually is due to a number of reasons such as eating smoking, dry mouth or other medical conditions. Bad breath is caused primarily by the bacteria on the back of your tongue or between your teeth. Both green and black tea can stop the growth of the bacteria. Rinsing with strong brewed tea reduces the unpleasant smell from the mouth. Use 2 or more used tea bags to prepare a new cup of tea. Let it come to room temperature and the use to clean your mouth. For better result repeat daily after meals.
9. Tea bags effectively absorb unpleasant odors.
Tea can help reduce unpleasant smell of hands such as fish or garlic. In addition, tea bags can be used inside the fridge or you can stick them in the trash can. You can also use them in ashtrays to reduce smell. An other idea is to stick dry tea bags with lavender flavor or other herbal tea of your choice in the seat covers of your car to get a natural air freshener.
10. Tea bags could be used for washing dishes, especially if you are allergic to soaps or other detergents.
No matter how strange it sounds, tea does have cleaning properties. Using a bunch of re-brewed tea bags, you can easily remove dirt or grease from mirrors, windows, floors, kitchen counters or other wooden furniture. Remember that after cleaning, make sure to dry the surface, because tea is also a good natural dye!

Corn On The Cob Life Hack
Milk Jug Snowman Outside Decoration
This is so simple of an idea and you can get your child involved to help get a kick start to the holiday festivities. Thoroughly clean milk/orange juice container by letting soak overnight with water and about two tablespoons of bleach. Rinse and dry. While you are waiting for this use old buttons or paper cutouts for mouth, nose and eyes. Get creative and give the snowman earmuffs, eyeglasses or whatever other creative add-on you can give to provide your snowman with a personality. For the lights: If making three or more like in the picture use a string of lights that is 150 lights. Puncture a hole in the back of the jug and push lights until you have about forty in each jug. This will provide room for the snowman to be placed close but as you desire. You can also use a little sand or some rocks in the jug before you put the lights in them to hold them securely if wind should arise.
