HOW TO: Clean Silver Plated Jewelry

A while back I bought some silver plated bangles that now have this yellowish tint to them.
To clean them I used a trick I learned a way back when from good ole television. 
 I've done this loads of times and it works like a charm every time.
 It's fast, easy and cheap! 

What You'll Need:
It really quite simple, all you need is...
(I used colgate whitening) 

1. Grab your dull/discolored silver

2. Using an old toothbrush (soft bristles), brush on some toothpaste. Make sure you really get into those nooks and crannies.
(If the jewelry is smooth simply rub on the toothpaste)

3. Clean with water.

4. Dry with paper towel. 

It will shine like the first time you bought it!

Fabric Tape Headband

Hello There 
If you're on pinterest you've probably heard of washi tape but have you heard about fabric tape?
I purchased some by accident (thinking it was washi tape) a few weeks ago.
I'm glad I bought them, they are really great. 
They come in a wide variety of patterns and you can use it to decorate pretty much everything.

Here I've use it to revamp an old and very purple headband.

Fabric Tape

Its simple --Just tape on the fabric tape on to the headband =)

DIY: Cleaning Slime

My keyboard is gross..I mean really gross. I can clean the surface but I can't seem to get rid of the crumbs between the gaps. 
I heard about this cleaning slimy gel sold on amazon which you place on the keyboard and it sinks into those gaps engulfing the dust and dirt. 
I was about to order it...then I thought can't I just make this stuff? 
Yes I Can and So Can You!

Step 1: Make your slime
Click Here for video on how to make the slime 
(it's really really easy! only 4 ingredients Borax, Water, glue, food color)

Step 2: Place on dusty/dirty surface. 

Step 3: Wait a few minutes. Then peel away and look at all the gunk it took out. 

Give it a try! What do you have to lose besides the dust/debris ?^__^
