Review: Ozeri Precision Digital Bath Scale

I was really excited to review the Ozeri Precision Digital Bath Scale
 and it did not disappoint! It arrived well packaged and in one piece:

The scale came with a lithium battery and we had it out of the box and in the bathroom working in under 3 minutes! The scale is made of tempered glass and works by just standing on it- no waiting or tapping required! It has a button that instantly changes the unit of measurement from pounds to kilograms to British stones. We have found it to be very accurate. I also love how thin it is:
One of the first things my husband did was use it to weigh our dog- he's so silly! But clearly it worked!

Overall, if you are looking for a scale this is a great option. It is reasonably priced and very accurate.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

How to Make Homemade Body Wash

Body wash is a luxury item that I enjoy. I like to use loofahs and I feel that it just works better than more economical bar soap. What I don't like are the extra chemicals in it. Organic and natural body washes are really expensive so I decided to try making my own. It was actually pretty fun and felt like a science project (minus making a giant poster and writing a report).

  1.  Bring water to a simmer in a large stock pot
  2. Grate soap into soft flakes (I used my food processor because I'm lazy)
  3. Add soap to water and stir until completely melted.
  4. Turn off heat and stir in glycerin. It will look like this: 
  5.  Cover and let sit for 24 hours. This is the hard part because I kept wanting to mess with it and thought it wasn't working- it is!

    When I woke up the next morning I had pot full of body wash!

    I was able to fill four and a half jars for a pittance! Easy peasy!
