Today I’m sharing little tips and tricks to make my summertime easier!
All of these tips for summer are tried and true and we’ve been doing some of these for years! Did you know that toothpaste actually helps relieve mosquito bites?
Fill ice cube trays with aloe vera and freeze. When sunburns arrive simply grab the cubes for instant relief!
POPSICLE MESSES GONE
Stop those messy popsicle drips by simply poking a hole in the center of the cupcake liner and sticking the popsicle through to catch any drips! Double up on the liners for larger popsicles.
TIP: Turn a cupcake liner upside down and poke a hole in the center for a straw and you have an instant lid for your drinks!
COLD DRINK FOR HOURS
One of my favorite summertime hacks is to fill a water bottle 1/3 full and freeze it while laying it on its side.
When you’re ready to go, fill the bottle up and you’ll have cold ice water or a drink for hours! Laying it on its side frees up the hole on top so you don’t have to wait for ice to thaw!
BABY OIL RAZOR TRICK
Swimsuit season means lots of shaving! Did you know that shaving with baby oil gives you a smoother shave than shaving cream or soap?
Also, the oil helps your razor stay sharper for a longer period of time.
TOOTHPASTE TO THE RESCUE
Relieve those annoying, itchy mosquito bites by dabbing a little mint toothpaste on them. The mint flavor provides a cool, soothing sensation and instant relief!
CONDIMENT CUPCAKE PAN
For BBQ’s and summer potluck parties use a cupcake pan for condiments such as ketchup, mustard, mayo, dips, onions, sauces, you name it! Great way to keep it all in one place and you only need to wash one dish!
