Spring is here, and it’s time to get a jump start on chores. First things first, take care of these two top tasks. And if you’re suffering from the seasonal sniffles, I’ve got an easy fix you can whip up quick!
First Lawn Feeding
Give your lawn its first “official” feeding of the season by mixing 3 lbs. of Epsom salts per bag of natural dry lawn food. Apply the mixture at half of the recommended rate, and then wash it down with this Lawn Snack Tonic: 1 can of beer and 1 cup of dishwashing liquid mixed in a 20 gallon hose-end sprayer, filling the balance of the sprayer jar with ammonia. Apply it to your lawn to the point of run-off to really get it off on the right root this spring.
It’s also time for another spring chore—window cleaning. But rather than buy a pricey store-bought cleaner, whip up your own by mixing equal parts of ammonia and rubbing alcohol in a hand-held sprayer bottle. Just spritz it on the window, and wipe with a clean cloth to reveal a clear, streak-free window.
If you’ve got spring allergies, you may have the ol’ stuffy nose to contend with. Now, don’t bother using medicines when there’s a safe, natural alternative. Instead of downing a decongestant, simply slice an onion in half, hold the cut side up under your nose, and take a big whiff. Your sinuses will be clear in no time flat!
