Stay Awake With Peppermint

Whether you are out on the open road or approaching a deadline that means some long and late hours. Don’t fall asleep at the wheel!  Inhale Peppermint from a handkerchief or straight from the bottle to perk up  rather than grab a Snickers to revitalize you as you   ‘go the extra mile’.

Coffee Grounds To The Rescue!

Hand Savior:

Coffee Grounds To The Rescue! Rub coffee grounds onto your hands after handling smelly foods such as garlic, onion or fish. The grounds will absorb the smell, as well as any oil that may have hitched a ride on your hands.
