Homemade Hummingbird Food~

 I am so excited the Hummingbirds have finally arrived. 

Hummingbird Food Recipe~

2 cups sugar
6 cups water

Place sugar and water in a sauce pot and bring to a boil. Boil for 6 minutes. Watch and stir often so the syrup does not boil over. Remove from stove and let cool to room temperature.  

Fill the feeder and watch them come flocking to your yard. Today it took only a couple seconds. 

Homemade Fabric Softener~

The great thing about keeping a stocked pantry is that you can whip up whatever you need when you need it. Today it is a cool day at Farming On Faith so I thought I would make a few of my cleaning products. I love the smell of Downy but you can add any natural scents you like. I just happen to be a girl addicted to scents that smell strong. 

Fabric Softener Recipe

1 cup vinegar
2 cups hair conditioner  
6 cups of water

Mix all this together. You may use this like any other Fabric Softener.

 If you prefer dryer sheets you can try this~I diluted this down with water~ 3 parts water, 1 part softener. I then poured it into this glass container.  Next I added  sponges.  For each load~ wring out the sponge and add to the dryer as you would fabric sheets.  I added a few drops of  Downy scent!  Smells wonderful!

***I buy my scent at Natures Garden Candle Supplies. Due to copyright laws the scent is now called NG Clean Breeze.  Click Here!****
