GET YOUR STAINED HANDS CLEAN!

 
 

In the summer, many of us are out working in the yard or garden every weekend, or even daily.

Gloves are an option, but they can get in the way of holding onto things, and for many of us, make weeding or using our hands cumbersome.

If you prefer to work with your bare hands, what can you do to quickly and easily clean your stained and dirty fingers?

Preventative Measures:

  1. Before going out to the garden to work, dig your fingernails into a soft bar of soap. After gardening your nails will wash clean.



Post Gardening Measures:

  1. Make sugar soap. Wash your hands as usual with warm water and soap, just add a spoonful of granulated sugar.

  2. If the beds of your nails are green from pinching back old flowers or weeding, soak them in a dish of hydrogen peroxide. The pigment instantly dissolves away.

Now you can go and dig to your heart's content, and no one will ever be the wiser!

Gardening-tip:



Keep Your Trees Weed Free

When a tree, or any plant for that matter, has to compete for water, food and nutrients, it can place extra stress on it.

Try and keep the area under trees and plants weed free. They will grow faster, and healthier.
