Sterilizing jars and bottles

If you don’t already know how, these are the simplest ways to do it:
In the oven: Preheat the oven (225F/107C) and put in the jars and their caps separately, for 20 minutes. Make sure that they don’t touch each other. Remember to wear kitchen gloves when you take them out because they will be HOT.
Hot water: Another method is to fill them with hot/boiling water, but in this case, remember to put something metal inside, like a spoon, so the glass won’t break. Fill them completely to overflow. Do the same with the caps. Wipe completely with paper towel and use immediately.

Ice ..mask.. cubes

So, do you have any natural mask leftovers? If you prepare a natural mask recipe and you can’t use all of it at one time, don’t throw it away.

natural fruit mask ice cubesThere are several opinions about the freezing impact on fruits and vegetables, whether they lose their vitamins and nutrients or not. However, I do freeze my mask leftovers; sometimes I make more of it in order to freeze it and have it handy on a busy day.

I put it in ice cube trays, and whenever I want, I just unfreeze the mask that suits me each time. This can be very handy even on a busy day or during seasons that there aren’t so many fruits available.

These cubes are so cute, colorful, and you can make them in nice shapes too. Invite your friends and offer them a pretty fruity mask on a .. little plate or bowl!

This is really …cool! Perfect for a hot summer day!
