Daily Shower Cleaner

I looked at the ingredient list of the spray bottle of shower cleaner I had purchased and found that the main ingredient was citric acid.

Well, I have a jar of it on the shelf from a wine making kit. So, I added one teaspoon of the powder to 1 cup of water and a dribble of dishwasher rinse agent. This went into an empty spray bottle and I put it in the shower.

The stall gets a spray down every day after my shower and it stays looking good for much longer at the cost of only a few pennies and some effort.


Creamy Garlic Salad Dressing

This is my favourite salad dressing recipe:


  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp celery seeds
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 or 3 cloves of garlic
  • 3 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 cup oil

Put egg, mustard, salt, celery seeds, honey, garlic, vinegar and 1/2 cup of oil in a blender.

Blend until smooth, then gradually add the remaining oil.

I use a hand blender to do this and it works just as well.
