Effacer Ma Honte - Yellow Armpit Stains

Plagued by yellowing armpits and sweat stains?

I had a problem recently while I was vacationing at a friend's house.
Talk about embarrassing!!!

My innocent little sweat stains weren't getting better in the washer, in fact they were getting worse! The rust in their water transformed every the tiniest drop of sweat into a funky orange tie dye stain. I thought the shirt was lost forever.

Then I learned this amazing new trick.
You squeeze a fresh lemon on the stain until it's saturated, nevermind the pulp clinging to the garment, it works great. Then pour a generous amount of salt and allow it to dissolve a little into the saturated stain. Then, and this is the best part, hang the garment in direct sunlight!

If you have a stain on both sides of a shirt, don't bother doing both sides at once, because only the side in direct sunlight will be cured. Just flip the shirt over and begin again. Then wash your shirt according to the manufacturers recommendations. Voilà! Presto-Chango! It's like magic!

Summer Love - Watermelon Slush

Combat these hot summer days with hydration the natural way!

Icy Cold.

Watermelon is mostly water, 92%
Nature's delicate sweetness also contains 4g of fiber in every 100g serving.

Look at this gorgeous frozen drink...
So here's what I did, I went to the store to pick up a watermelon. I rescue a melon out of the produce section, and there's a man there shopping for vegetables. He asks me, "Savez-vous comment savoir si le melon est bon ?" (Do you know how to tell if the melon is good?) After a comment about how small the selection was, I explained that I usually choose the one that is soft around the stem. To which he replied, you just flick it with your finger and listen to the sound it makes. And the verdict? The melon passed both tests. It's ripe, juicy, and delicious.

Back at the appartement I sliced it open, chopped it into 1-2 cm cubes thrown into a tupperware container, and popped into the freezer overnight. When you're ready to serve your slush, just run the diced watermelon through the food processor (or blender).

Summer Has Arrived!
