If you are anything like me, you spend countless time standing at the sink up to your elbows in dirty, greasy dishes and wishing that you could be anywhere else. I wish I could tell you that I have found the magical trick to getting clean dishes while you relax on a beach somewhere, but I haven’t. What I have found is a way to cut my dish washing time in half and be pleasantly relaxed while standing at the sink.
Dawn Destinations is a new line of Dawn soap with the same grease fighting power that you have come to rely on with Dawn, but with new exotic scents that are both relaxing and inspiring. I’m not going to lie and claim that this new line of Dawn dish soaps makes me actually want to do the dishes, cause that would just be crazy nobody actually wants to do the dishes, but it will make a tedious chore a bit more efficient and pleasant. I tried the Thai Dragon Fruit scent and it’s fresh, fruity scent was divine. The best part was that the scent didn’t take away from the grease cutting power that I have always loved about Dawn, I was able to get the dishes clean in the half the time it takes me if I use another brand.
To keep the relaxation theme going, I have made a tutorial for making an aromatherapy pillow infused with lavender for those days when you just need to unwind after a long day of breaking up sibling fights, helping with schoolwork, and scrubbing stains of unknown origin out of the carpet. This pillow is so easy to make and would make a great gift too!
1 tube or knee high sock (You can find some really cute ones online for pretty cheap)
Lavender essential oil
Cut the sock into a rectangle by cutting off the top and the foot of the sock, see below:
Turn the rectangle inside out and stitch one side completely
Stitch the other side leaving a hole for turning and pouring in the rice
Turn the sock right side out
Pour the rice into the tube with a funnel
Add 10-15 drops of lavender essential oil
Close the hole and top stitch both short ends
That’s it! You now have an aromatherapy pillow that is perfect for winding down after a long day, just heat for 30-45 seconds in the microwave and wrap it around your neck while you watch TV or read a book, it is great for relieving neck and shoulder tension, plus it smells heavenly!
