Description
Off with their heads! Many homemakers and gardeners take the easy way out when it comes to exiling odors and banishing bugs—they use toxic chemicals that may be harmful to their families and the earth. Ellen Sandbeck has discovered that the all-natural alternatives are just as easy and effective to use, and that they are wickedly fun. Sandbeck's way of banishing thistles from her backyard kingdom is a case in point: she chops off their heads and lets them bleed to death. Slug Bread & Beheaded Thistles reveals all of her best tricks. From bedroom to bathroom, garden to lawn, your home will be clean and green and pest-free. Explode cockroaches with baking soda and sugar Freshen your car with coffee grounds Keep out slugs with a bread dough that kills Armor your plants with soap spray Grow disease-resistant plants by putting sick ones in your compost pile Eradicate crayon marks with mayonnaise Protect your roses with a minefield of garlic Get rid of raccoons with dirty laundry Cure plant viruses with spoiled milk
