1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 tablespoon dish detergent
1 cup water
1 piece aluminum foil
1. Heat water in the microwave for 1 or 2 minutes.
2. Cut a piece of aluminum foil that roughly covers the bottom of a small bowl (like a cereal bowl).
3. Pour hot water into bowl. Place salt, soda, and dish-washing liquid into bowl. Place jewelry on top of foil and let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes. Rinse jewelry in cool water and dry jewelry completely with soft cloth. Discard solution after use and make a new batch next time.
4. According to wire-sculpture.com, "this works well for gold-filled, brass, German (nickel) silver, and sterling silver. I have even cleaned jewelry with freshwater pearls, shell cameos and mother of pearl with no problem.".

I have seen amazing videos of fallen ice from the buildings' roof and yesterday, my husband witnessed the event in his very own back porch. Photo above I just took minutes ago, proof that global warming isn't true. If it is, why all these ice around us?

If you are a mommy and have been buying organic products especially produce, well, congratulations to that for you are taking steps towards healthy you and your family. It would also be a big bonus if what you are buying for your pantry are packed in tetra pak. Buying items in tetra pak may meant nothing to you but it actually has a great impact when it comes to your helping your environment. You can Become Carton Smart by continuing what you are doing, buying products in carton packages.
Examples of this are the products I received from Pacific Foods. Their Tetra Pak carton packages are designed efficiency and environmental friendliness which takes my smaller steps towards living smarter. Talking of which, I plan of making a pumpkin recipe this coming Thanksgiving by using one of the products they sent us, the Pacific foods pumpkin puree. I haven't tried it before but I am more than willing to take a first taste of it.
I love the thought of having to try organic products in tetra paks. Aside from it being organic, free of pesticides and other harmful chemicals, tetra paks are easy to open and store. They are neat, stackable and space savers. Tetra Pak cartons are made of 70% paper, a renewable resource from selectively harvested, regrown trees that are FSC- certified.
With major holidays coming, we sure are shopping for ingredients for our holiday meals. And with that we should see to it that they are packed in cartons. That way, we are taking small steps toward a smart living.

I recently received free organic products from Pacific company. I can't be more happier after getting them in the mail because aside from them being organic, they are also in tetra pak cartons. I know I can use a lot of chicken stock and being able to try this Pacific unsalted simply stock is such an opportunity to be thankful for.
Using organic products is one way towards healthy eating and encouraging my family to live a healthy life without putting all those harmful chemicals that are mixed in the food we eat everyday. Aside from that, the fact that tetra pak cartons are easy to store in the pantry that saves me some space for other stuff, easy to use, I don't need a can opener to use it and they are stackable!
I can very well use them on special occasions and as for the chicken stock, it can be used for my wanton soup. It has been raining here for two days now and it's cold so a good warm soup helps me to warm up a bit.
