Summer days of soaking in the sun and watching kids splash in the pool aren't far away, but that means sunburns and mosquitoes are also lingering on the horizon. Check out these summer hacks to make your time outdoors less buggy, less sticky and more relaxing.
Are you tired of scrubbing out drip stains from your kids' shirts all summer long? Penny Pinchin' Mom suggests using a cupcake pan liner or coffee filter to catch drips and keep little fingers from getting sticky by simply poking a hole in the middle of it and pushing it on the base of a popsicle or sucker stick.
Aloe Vera Ice Cubes
Are you tired of lugging your oversized bag to the beach, only to open it to find a leaky sunscreen tube? Then try squirting a day's worth of sunscreen in contact lens cases to easily transport your necessary SPF while also keeping the beach bag light and clean.
Natural Bug Repellant
It's mosquito season, and they can really ruin a summer party. Try adding a bundle of sage to your next campfire or backyard fire pit. The herb-scented smoke keeps bugs at bay without repelling your guests.
