A treat that my kids have always enjoyed during the hot Summer months is an ice cold slushy. Yum! But it isn’t always practical to drive to the nearest convenience store to get one. With Slushy Magic you can make your own slushy at home in just a few minutes. You place the Magic Freezer cubes in the freezer, fill the cup with your favorite cold drink, wait a few minutes, shake, and it’s ready! And the best part of this is you can use whatever drink you want, so instead of the sugary cherry slushies that you will find at most places, you can opt for making healthier ones with apple juice, lemonade or even chocolate milk!
I find that these slushy makers would also make a great gift. With this Living Social deal, you get 2 Slushy Magic for only $10 plus a $8.95 shipping. And the best part is that you can use them over and over again so in the long run the savings are quite significant!
I bought a pair of ballet flats at Old Navy that I loved. They were black and WHITE zebra-print fabric flats with a little black bow on the front. I was not a huge fan of the bow, so I took it off. I very carefully used a seam-ripper to slice the threads that were holding it in place. I was in love with them after that and I wore them that way for about a year.
This year, however, they were looking so dirty and I could not get them clean to save my life. I put them in the washing machine, still dingy… I tried scrubbing them and just faded the black stripes instead of cleaning the white sections. I had come to terms with the fact that they were GRAY and black instead of WHITE and black. Then I had a stroke of genius; I should dye them GRAY! That is precisely what I did and it increased the longevity of this inexpensive pair of shoes immensely!
What do you think?
Here’s how I did it:
Well, I had already washed them and let them dry. On the stove, in a large pot I heated 1/4 of a package of black RIT dye and enough water to cover the shoes. I submerged the shoes for about 5 minutes and then immediately rinsed them off.
*A few of things to note here:
- I was ready to give up on these shoes and throw them out, so I was willing to risk them in this experiment.
- I had already washed them before dyeing them, so they took the color very well. (Had I not washed them, they may have still had a treatment on them that might have prevented color absorption.)
- I did not want the dingy white sections to be black, just gray. So I only used a small amount of dye and only left the shoes submerged for a short amount of time and rinsed them immediately.
Do you have pair of shoes that needs a face lift? Extend the life of your shoes and save by foregoing the purchase of new ones.
