PSA for today...

Dip a paper towel or cotton in a mixture of apple cider vinegar and water and hold it on a bug bite or a rash and it takes the itch and sting away. It really works!

Other than that, I really don't care, do u?

1. I have a spray bottle of vinegar in my gardening kit, when I do any intense weeding

About every 30 minutes, or so, I spray down my arms, just in case I've brushed up against something that has brushed up against poison ivy or stinging nettle.

Before I started doing that, I would inevitably end up a blistered mess. Since I started the spray downs - nada.

6. When I'm working around the herb garden, I smell like Italian Dressing

That's an up-side or down-side, depending on your palate.

4. Didn't know that. Will have to try it. Generally I just use rubbing alcohol.

That seems to work pretty well. Thanks for the tip.

5. Thanks. A paste of baking soda + water

works too.

I hadn't thought of vinegar, so thanks again!
