DIY GARDENER’S HAND SCRUB

MAKE YOUR OWN GARDENER’S HAND SCRUB…

I used two different sizes of Ball jars, the 8 oz. and the 12 oz., and filled them 3/4 full of sugar.

I then added Dawn dish soap (the pink kind with with Olay Beauty Hand Renewal in it) until it reached just below the bottom of the mouth of the jar.

Stir the sugar and soap together….adding sugar a little at a time until it’s a paste-likeconsistency. You don’t want it to be too runny!

It smells SO good and the light pink color it makes when mixed with the white sugar is SO pretty. 🙂

I added some jute twineas a “ribbon” and I THOUGHT about printing out a cute label…but didn’t quite get around to it.  Yet.

But a label could include the instructions: To wash the dirt off your hands, use a small amount and rub. The sugar works like an abrasive to remove the dirt, and the soap washes it all away.

UPDATE:   Since I have been potting (a LOT) of flowers this week….I have used a LOT of this scrub!  And I had to come back and give an update on how much I LOVE IT!  It is SO great at getting my hands CLEAN and it makes them feel so soft!!!

If you do much gardening….I highly recommend whipping up a batch!  You won’t be sorry!
