Welcome to Pinspiration Friday, here is what I tried from Pinterest this week and my reviews.
First was a homemade teeth whitening concoction.
It consisted of mixing a little bit of mouthwash with some hydrogen peroxide. I swished for 30seconds three times in a row with this and then brushed my teeth with a mixture of tooth paste and baking soda with just enough water added to make a paste. I did this once a day for six days in a row and this is the result:
A little underwhelming, not much change really. The baking soda isn't the best tasting but if it had made a real difference I could easily have sucked it up. As it is, I think the people raving about this and saying it's like they have new teeth.....wrong.
The next thing I tried was making homemade ice cream with the kiddies. This was a big hit, so easy and so much fun.
For this project you will need:
1/2c of half and half (apparently milk works too)
1Tbsp of granulated sugar
1tsp of vanilla extract
1 large and 1 small ziploc bag
(and two excited little kids)
Mix together milk, sugar and vanilla extract in the small bag. Put ice cubes and a good bit of salt in the large bag and then place the small bag inside the large bag.
Set your timer for 5 minutes and start shaking!
Pass it around so everyone gets a chance to shake.
The shaking was the fun part, lots of laughs which turned to shrieking as the timer got close to the end.
Enjoy the finished product. :)
It only makes a half cup so perfect for a few bites each for two little kids.
We will definitely be doing the ice cream project over and over again, it was a big hit.
And my final Pinterest inspired project for the week? Shaving with baby oil. It apparently leaves your legs baby soft and is better for the razor blade.
I actually think this worked quite well. It definitely left me with very soft and smooth legs. The only drawbacks...it did clog the blade up and it had to really be rinsed every couple of strokes and it does make the bottom of the tub/shower stall a bit slippery. Other than that it does a nice job. Much cheaper than shaving cream/gel too as a little goes a long way.
Hope you enjoyed the reviews, would love to hear how your Pinterest inspired projects have turned out.

Have a great weekend!
