About Me

Fort Benning, GA, United States
I'm an army wife, working mom of 2 kids, and a dancer for fun! My husband Tim works the at the combatives school here on fort benning. I work for MWR at Outdoor Recreation as their admin assistant...I absolutely LOVE my job I couldn't have found anything better! My daughter, Kennedie, was born in January of 04 and our son, Cale, was born June of 09 - that's right they are 5 and a half years apart! Kennedie is VERY involved in dancing. Cale is well on his way to become a fighter - daddy is already working on his punching and kicking techniques! This blog started out as a recipe sharing venture but now it's going to turn into a more "granola" way to live. Cheap recipes more homemade recipes and repurposing things. I'm a crafter at heart so i'm going to throw some of that in their too!

Natural drain unclogger

I'm embarassed to show you what my shower looked like from the standing water that has made it take almost 30 minutes to drain.  But this is what it looked like before
 Then you add 1:1 parts of baking soda and vinegar.  My drain was so clogged it would only hold 1/4 cup of baking soda.  Once you get all the baking soda into the drain - you pour the vinegar on and close the drain up. 
 It will bubble and fiz - leave the drain closed for about 30 minutes and let the fizzies do the work.  This helped break up the nastiest in my drain and I was able to pull out the hair from the drain with a cheapy paintbrush (what I had on hand that was long and thin)  now my drain is free flowing!
Now i can show you a sparkly clean tub that is something to be proud of!
