Home made scrubs, for you and your home

  It's Friday already, Good Friday at that. The week just flew by. And along the way my missing recipes turned up, right under my nose as usual. Must be getting old. So I will pass along a few recipes for spring cleaning your house, and a healthy breakfast muffin from Dr Oz.
 By now you know that vinegar is a disinfectant, and a drop of tea tree oil makes it more potent, so cleaning can be done with a minimum of supplies that are good for you, your pets and kids and home. So here is one I love, as I am a big user of a soft scrub for cleaning sinks, cupboards etc, and this one works great:

 1/8 cup of baking soda, mixed with enough of your dishwashing liquid  to make a paste. Keep it in an empty tub, margerine, yogurt etc, and use with a cloth or paper towel to clean what needs cleaning.
 You can also sprinkle soda into your toilet, add white vinegar and let it fizz, then brush and flush.
  I like to make scouring powder out of equal parts of baking soda and salt, put in a sprinkle can.
   For your self, make a great face cleanser out of :
 2 Tablespoons of cottage cheese
 2 Tablespoons of vegetable oil.
Mix together well and massage onto face, rinsing well with warm water.

  Now for breakfast. Here is a good for you muffin that is fast, and tastes great and really is good for you:

  1/4 cup ground fresh flax seed
  1 teaspoon baking powder
  2 teaspoons cinnamon
  1 teaspoon coconut oil(very healthy fat)
  1 egg
  1 packet of stevia
Stir all together in a coffee mug, and microwave for 50  seconds. Could breakfast be any easier? Add an egg for protein and you are good to go.
  Have a wonderful Easter, hope you are spending it with family, til next time, be healthy.
