Note to self... Check to see if the glass is broken before sticking your hand inside to wash it. Yarrow is an awesome styptic. Stoped the bleeding in a fraction of the time pressure alone would have. Doesn’t make washing the rest of the dishes any easier lol but we’ll finish them up, apply some lavender and frankincense on it, put in a bandaid and call it a day. Ok not really, still have a long to do list ahead of me today. #herbalwoundcare #plantmedicine #herbalmedicine #yarrow #styptic #stopbleeding #washingdishes #brokenglass
This can tear families apart. My family is from Guyana and exclusively uses the soapy sponge method. In fact I've seen them argue that dishes aren't even clean if you wash them by the sink fill method, and on occasion re-wash dishes. And I've heard all sorts of debates on this, that with the soapy sponge you use more water (not true, sinks are huge!) and that dishes aren't clean (not sure how that makes sense, read up on how soap works). But there is no way in hell you will get me to put my hands in a sink full of dirty water and food particles. How do you wash dishes?
I would rather wash dishes than do laundry, any day...anyone else?? We made the switch to thieves dish soap this month and I love that it has safe, nontoxic, plant based ingredients. When you think about washing your dishes with those other kinds of soaps that are filled with all kinds of nasty things, and then we eat off of them or letting our kids eat off of them is a little alarming. If you’re interested in switching to nontoxic household products, please let me know. I can always place an order for you using my 24% discount or you can easily become a member with the Thieves kit and start ditching and switching your home. One of my favorite things about this dish soap is on the back it says “If swallowed drink plenty of water to dilute” 🙌🏼 🧡

My husband’s plastic dish scrubber died and I refused to get him a new one. Instead, behold: a wood and metal scrubber! And when the bristles can’t scrub effectively anymore we will put a new scrubber on the re-usable wood handle. ————— Facts: (1) I looked everywhere in person and had to order it online (2) I currently have the Kink’s song Lola playing in my head 🎶(3) the Lola lyrics are turning into Weird Al Yankovich’s Yoda lyrics (4) if the brush wasn’t in the pic you would see the sink is full of stemless wine glasses and I would therefore name this photo “Powered By Chianti” (5) I hate that I have to hand wash my wine glasses 🍷 🤦🏼♀️ Happy Friday, y’all! 🌵 ☀️ 🌱
This may look like a peaceful moment, but there is water going everywhere! And man, it was one of those days. Thankful for a husband who is brave enough to tell me I need to go read my Bible and pray when that’s the last thing I want to hear. (More details are in today’s blog post.) #oliviakeala
YUP!! With all the snow days and shit piling up here...well let's just say lists have no place in my life right now lol. Mostly because I'm not going to follow them anyway. I have so much to do on any given day that I'm just weaving in and out. I'll do the laundry and stop to clean a toilet. I'll do some dishes and get so frustrated with the stove having stuff on it that I'll clean it off and before you know it I'm coming back to a sink full of cold dish water because after cleaning the stove I had to wipe every other surface in the house. After that I have to sweep right? I'll start vacuuming and pull the couch out to vacuum underneath and behind it and I'll end up switching the whole damn livingroom around just to notice the walls and blinds need to be cleaned. Lol. I'm kidding! Not about everything just about not making lists. Of course I make lists and everything will eventually get checked off I'm just saying I may have to refill the dish water 4 times a day!! Lol please tell me everyone else has the cleaning add. Lol ..

LIFE HACK: Did you know if you do your dishes on your down time WHILE cooking you won’t have a huge stack of dishes to do later?
A good percentage of people hate doing dishes and would rather ask someone else to do it for them. 🤦🏻♂️Tsk tsk tsk.. Mostly because we grew up having parents or someone else doing everything for them. •
I don’t know about you, but I find doing the dishes very therapeutic. Put some groovy tunes, focus cleaning your dishes away, and watch how everyone will leave you alone for a moment because they see you cleaning something. After 2-3 songs later you basically finished all your dishes!
Just like that...✨🍽✨
I’m also glad I don’t use tap water, which has many types of chemicals in it that can stick onto your dishes AND food. I’m glad to have my machine is always ready to go and ready to sterilize ANY nasty hard to get food/oil off of all my utensils and dishes.
Take responsibility for your own mess.
You make the mess, you clean it up. Be happy you took massive action now than later when you REALLY don’t want to wash.
