Shannon started the Works for Me Wednesday idea and I’ve enjoyed reading tips from other women. (Though, I must confess I become overwhelmed with tips quickly and can’t read very many in one sitting.)
My tip for the day involves a cheap, odor-friendly, and environmentally-healthy way of cleaning your tub: I use dollar shampoos to do the job. Shampoo is designed to strip grease from your hair — and it does the exact same thing in your bathtub. Go ahead and give it a whirl. It will leave your bathroom smelling nice and your tub looking sparkly clean.
I’ve been getting a kick out of reading the labels on my shampoo bottles, especially the one that insinuates I can escape reality by sudsing my hair follicles. Here’s a little quiz for the rest of you. By the info on the back of the bottle, can you identify which shampoo is 1) the cheap, tub-cleaning one? 2) the moderately priced one? and 3) the expensive, purchased-while-on-sale one?
a. “Thoroughly cleans, while adding volume and fullness. Leaves hair noticeably softer, smoother and more naturally vibrant.”
b. “Come clean. A rich, creamy lather takes shine and softness over the edge. Escape reality, experience the fragrance. Become a Moisture Maniac. Indulge your craving for brilliant hair.”
c. “____ Shampoo combines the light, fresh fragrance of aloe vera in a formula with honeysuckle, Vitamin E and gentle cleansers to nourish and restore the natural beauty of all hair types. Treat yourself and your hair to the long-lasting beauty and fresh fragrance of Aloe Vera.”
