Tips, Hints and other various stuff….

Well, I tried something out today!  I’ve posted before about not wearing deodorant any more.  It’s not that I’m not doing anything, but I’m using this rock crystal thing, and it works amazingly as far as you not stinking.  You still sweat, though!

When we were in Kamloops, I saw my sister (Debbie) putting pantyliner’s in her shirts, and I couldn’t understand what she was up to.  Turns out that I’m not the only one in the family who has boycotted “regular” deodorant/anti-perspirant.  But Debbie is much smarter, than I….she puts pantyliners in the armpits of her shirts, and VOILA – no more wet marks.

It’s taken me a bit to try it out, but yesterday I bought a package and decided to try it out today.  It felt kinda weird to stuffing a pad into my shirt, but once I got it in position, it seemed like it just might work.  You can’t really even tell that they are there.  The only thing that I am going to try is to put them in sidways along the underarm part of my shirt.  I’ve got them in long way’s right now, and I’m a bit …..um……..larger…..heck, I’m just fatter than Debbie is, and my underam area is bigger than her skinny little one.  While I didn’t get whole underarm area wet and soggy today – I did notice a spot that was a bit wet where the pantyliner didn’t stretch to.  I don’t know if I just moved it forward an inch if it would have made a difference, but it worked well enough that I’m going to try them in sidways, and see if I like it like that, better.

Okay! so now that I’ve outted both myself and Debbie (whether she wanted to be outted or not), what I’m wondering is if you all have any other secret or not so secret tips that you use.  It could be anything that might be helpful to the rest of us.  Come on!  Give it up!  We’re all just friends here. 

Things like……………ummmmmm  I use a green make up stick to cover up any red marks (pimples, scars, redness in my cheeks).  See, red and green make brown (basic coloring 101) and so if you have some redness that you want to hide, then get yourself a green make up stick – it will be your newest favorite friend.

Or, another tip would be that if you have stinky feet, to soak your feet in warm tea water.  Something in the tea helps to draw the stench right out of your feet.  So, get a bucket to soak your feet in, fill it with as warm water as your little tootsies can stand, and throw a few tea bags in.  Soak for as long as you can.  Repeat every couple of days, and it will definatly help with the stench.

Another tip would be for headaches……if you are prone to get a lot of headaches (I was before I went to the Naturopath, and she miracle cured me of everything) there are two thigns that you can try.  One is to put your hands into FREEZING COLD WATER for as long as you can stand it, and then pull them out, and then repeat again.  The idea is that the blood rushes toward your hands, and away from your brain, and it helps with the headache.  Then you can try the the opposite……Run your entire head under freezing cold tap water until you have basically frozen your brain out.  It works on the exact opposite principle, by having blood rush to your head.  Both are said to work amazingly.  I’ve done the hand one, but haven’t ever tried out the frozen head thing – the hand one did work by the way, and so I’d assume that the head one would work as well.

Okay, so there are a few of my tips…..you got anything else for me??????

  1. ooooo! I got lots of good ones! Visine on any thing red….blotchy skin, pimples…it totally takes the red out….just like the box says…but you can use it for more than your eyes! or the one about cutting an onion, and not making your eyes water….cut it in a pot of water…so the onion is submerged…voila! No tears! now my mind is drawing a blank (it’s a pregnant thing huh patti?!?!)…I’ll add some more if I think of them!
