I have been lurking here a  time ,and I feel that I must speak: here lay my bath secrets!( feel free to post your own )

1)Scrub: Mix enough honey and body wash with salt to make a paste,and scrub!

Or, make a soap with tea from tea bags(warning:Will stain clothes)
Makes a good scrub!

2)Foot soak:Add 2 tea bags to a basin with warm water and some lemon or orange slices.

At Random::if you don't have nail polish remover, perfume (with alcohol)
works as well, but don't go stealing from your mom!

As a spray,water with cornstarch fragrance oil works nicely


P.S.How do you get the chlorine smell (that you get from swimming too much) out of your hair?

thank you for sharing your reciepies!

as for the clorine smell, if sampooing doesnt work, try adding vinegar to the rinsing water, or try a few drops of tea tree oil mixed in your shampoo (the tea tree smell should cover almost any other)

To get rid of chlorine smell in your hair and bathing suit, just rinse with diluted baking soda (say 1/4 cup to a gallon of water, which will do your hair & suit).  Use a cup to pour it on your hair, let it set for a minute, and rinse-- no need to shampoo after, either! Soak your suit in the leftover and rinse with water.  It neutralizes the chlorine.

My favorite bath secret is Epsoms salt, with or without fragrance, in a nice hot bath.  Skin gets soooo soft!
