White vinegar will help deoderize sippy cups and bottles that have a sour milk smell.

I love doing that!
Add a little salt to the wash when bleaching your whites. It works like an oxidizer and they come out sparkling white!

And a little baking soda to get crud from the crevices in the lids!

Food get stuck on your skillet? No worries! When your done cooking and food has been removed add a drizzle of dish liquid to the still hot pan. Then use a sponge to spread it around. All stuck on food will come off easily at wash time!

I was in childcare for many yrs so we would put on soft music and pat the kids or rub backs until they fell asleep for nap time.  I also did this with my son when he was little.  Worked like a charm.

Use a sun-visor type hat in the bath or shower to keep water or soap out of little ones eyes :)

Homemade baby wipes (cloth)
1 cup water
1 tsp baby oil or organic oil of some sort
A few drops of essential oil (not necessary but I used Lavendar and Tea Tree. Lavendar soothes the skin and neuroreceptors and Tea Tree has antiseptic properties)
1 tblsp of baby wash or any type of organic soap like Dr. Bronner's)
Viva papertowels (or other durable papertowels).

Cut papertowel roll in half (pita!)

In a sealable long container (I used a large drink pitcher that sealed) put half roll in.

Mix all above up in a bowl and pour over the papertowels (you can always put more water, etc in if you like your wipes to be more or less saturated...i always needed more)

Make sure the roll is visably wet but not soaked

Seal up the container for about 10-30 mins.

Turn the entire container upside down for another 10-30 mins.

Do this for however long it takes for the entire roll to be wipey wet.

When it's done, take the cardboard middle out and seal in an airtight container or wipe container.
