How to sharpen your razor with jeans

Are you tired of using your nice razor for 2 weeks only to have it dull out and stop working? New blades are not cheap and can go for over 20$ for a 4 pack!

Today I will be showing you how to stretch the life of those blades to double and sometimes triple the normal life!

First things first. What exactly is a dull blade?
A dull blade is one that is no longer flat and smooth. A dull blade has little splinters of metal popping up and out making it hard to achieve a smooth shave.

You will also notice more razor burn when your blade is dull and more cuts because these little splinters get bigger and dig deeper into your skin pulling it up causing your blade to dig into the skin.

When you pass your dry blade on a pair of jeans backwards the little ripples in the tough jeans rip out these splinters leaving your blade much much smoother and sharper!

So finally lets get down to the steps.

What you will need
1. A pair of old jeans
2. A razor that is dulling.

1: Take your pair of jeans and place it on the counter (Or wear them at the time)

2: Take the razor and run it along your jeans using long strokes. Remember to stroke away from the handle. you do not want to cut your jeans!

3: after 10 backward strokes blow on the blade to remove any metal splinters or run it under water for 10 seconds.

Store and enjoy saving money!

This worked on all manual razors but I only recommend doing it 2 or 3 times per razor. As you strip off more metal your blade will become more and more serrated and you could end up with a bad cut if you are not careful.

How to make Bath bombs!

Today I will teach you how to make bath bombs!
These guys are amazing little balls designed to fizz up and make your bath water amazing.
Extremely romantic and also a very good way to make a perfect bath every time.
Here is a youtube link to check out if you have never seen a bah bomb in action before :)

My famous blue ocean bath bomb recipe!
This recipe will make your skin nice and soft. It also smells amazing and feels even more amazing!

ingredients you will need

• 2 cups citric acid
• 4 cups baking soda
• Witch hazel
• Blue powder food coloring (optional)
• Lavender Oil
• Course Sea Salt
• Dome Shaped Mold (A small metal mixing bowl works)
• Spray bottle

1.Blend the citric acid and baking soda. Ensure it is blended extremely well or you will have grainy bath bombs.

2. (Optional) Once you’ve blended really well, add your blue colorant.
*Do not add a ton as the witch hazel really bring it out!

3.Add 3 Tbsp Lavender oil to the mix while you are blending!

4.Now, this is the difficult part. Spritz (with a squirt bottle) the witch hazel onto your batch while stirring with the other hand. When your batch sticks together when squished, you need to start putting it in molds – time is of the essence. If you wait too long, the mixture will get hard. If you spritz too much, the mixture will be too wet and “grow” (start the fizzing reaction) on you.

5.Put the bombs in molds. Make sure to put a heaping Tbsp of Sea salt at the bottom of the bowl first!– wait a few minutes and tap them out. Let them air dry for 3 or 4 hours and voila! Wonderful, hard bath bombs. The harder you pack the bath bombs, the more dense, heavy, and durable bomb you will get.

These make for great gifts or just a nice alternative to regular bubble baths!
Enjoy and make sure not to stay too long in the bath! your poor skin will prune!!

Feel free to also switch the salt with something else like dried seaweed and the Lavender to another oil to try different bombs! Have fun with them!

Extremely healthy breakfast to go!

If you are like me you usually get up in the morning and rush out the door without doing much other than washing up and getting dressed.
If not you may still enjoy this as you can make it very quickly and it will be a huge nutritious punch to your morning diet!

The Reeses Pieces Power Shake!!!!
*warning contains peanuts

Ingredients you will need
1. 1 Cup Skim Milk
2. 2.5 Scoops of Chocolate Whey Protein
3. 1 large Tbsp of smooth Peanut Butter
4. 1 Cup "Whites" Egg Beaters (Here is a link if you have no idea what these are)
5. 1 Large Tbsp Creatine
6. 1/3rd a cup of ground Hazel nuts
7. 3 Ice cubes


In a blender add all of the above and blend for 30 - 45 seconds until you have a smooth thick shake.
Eat/drink in a mug or container with a lid.

The best thing about this power drink is that it is cheap for the amount the ingreds will make and will give you a massive burst of energy for multiple hours.
If you are planning on going hiking/camping or just have a sport coming up in a few hours this is the drink for you!

Warning!!!! As with all power drinks if you drink this more than 2-3 times a day you really need to hit the gym or else you will notice you will start to get fat. Even though this drink is overflowing with energy if you cannot use it up it will simply go into storage (fat)

Enjoy! If you have any recipes you would like to share please place them in the comments :) No pressure for that though at all.

How to make Napalm (Waterproof fire)

Do not use this for any evil reasons. Do not light a house or anything on fire unless you relish in the thought of going to prison.

This is to be carried with you in a safe container while you are camping to keep a fire going all night or if you need to emergency signal someone.

Okay now to what exactly napalm is.
Napalm is Gas mixed with another agent used by the military to burn people alive.
This is not going to be used for that though and this mix is purely designed to stay lit for as long as possible. You can actually keep this stuff lit underwater!

Ingredients you will need
1. Unleaded gas. (does not matter the octane)
2. Styrofoam and lots of it
3. Container. Ensure that it can be sealed tightly

How to make napalm

1. Fill your container half full of gas. (Wear a mask and be outdoors. Gas fumes are toxic)

2. Start placing chunks of Styrofoam into the container. You will see it will instantly dissolve. Keep doing this until no more dissolves and all you have is a thick goop.

Stir with a little stick to make sure the goop is uniform then seal. You now have napalm.

Now that you have this napalm know how to put it out..

Flour.. Yes you will need to drown your fire in Flour to get it out.
Water will not work and burying it in sand will not work.

If you by any chance get any napalm on your skin and it lights.. SCRAPE IT OFF INSTANTLY!! then cup a handful of Flour and hold it as hard as you can on the skin.

Enjoy and be safe all. This stuff can be placed on a few logs in a camp fire to keep it burning for hours and if used for safe fun methods it will be a great tool.

Party prank kit

Due to popular request I am going to make today's a Party prank kit.
Have fun but don't get yourself in trouble ;) Also be sure you don't hurt anyone!
Because I will be listing a bunch of products you can make and use I will separate each object. Simply pick the ones you want and make/bring them!

The case

The case can be anything from a Altoids container to a pill holder.
Just make sure the case is Hard and will not bend or smush in your pocket.

Salty drink

What you will need
Salt, water

Wet a bit of salt and shape into a little ball. Let dry
When you see your victim not eyeing his drink simply slip this in!
Be careful though, Someone may see this and think you are slipping drugs into the drink.
This also works great with other party foods like dip or nachos

Numbing of the big mouth

What you will need

This one is pretty evil. Put some Oragel into a small container in your pocket. Once you see a bottle or a glass near someone that is unattended or the person is distracted do the following.
1. Get oragel on your index finder and thumb
2. Walk by and touch the rim of the glass or the rim of the bottle with both fingers to spread the Gel on
3. Walk away

The person will take another drink without notice. In about 30 seconds his mouth will start to go numb and he will probably freak out.. Warning, This may end the party.

The soap without hope

This is a silly one. Bring a bottle of transparent nail polish and head into the washroom. Pour the bottle onto the soap bar and walk away.
It will dry in about 4 minutes completely ruining the soap.
From that point on whenever someone tries to lather up all they will get is a squeaking bar of soap!

Never sleep again

Purchase a annoyotron and when no one is looking wander into the hosts bedroom and plant it somewhere. For the next month they will be stuck thinking there is a lost cricket in the room! Very hard to find and very annoying!
(I do not sell or endorse this product)

Hot nuts

Everyone loves mixed nuts and after a few drinks be sure they will start to become the party favorite.
Bring a bag of tasty salted nuts but... First do the following.

Purchase 5 Red Habanero peppers
Crush these up and dilute the remains in a cup of vinegar
Place about 10 peanuts (or More if you are twisted) and let them soak for a hour
Take these out wearing some latex gloves and sprinkle a little salt on them then let them dry.
Add these back into the bag and shake.

Now at the party simply dump all the nuts into a bowl and smile.. Its like Russian roulette where every nut gets them closer and closer to that deadly hot nut!

The evil carpet gag

Every ones biggest fear at a party is to have something spilled on their rug that will not come out.
This is a really evil one as the host will freak completely out for a short while.

What you need
1. Plastic cup
2. Disappearing ink from a kids shop

Simply fill the glass half full with the ink and try to walk somewhere to place it down where no one will really notice but will be right on the edge ready to fall.
Next stay close to it and try to have someone do a party trick that involves them swinging around in an attempt to knock the glass over. (Be creative)

Once the glass falls the blue liquid will go everywhere freaking everyone out! Oh no!! The stains!!

Of course everyone will try to help clean up only to find that while they are cleaning the dark blue stains are disappearing!!

Extremely funny gag to play :D Just take it to your grave because there will be a ton of grumpy people for a while lol

These are all fun and should be pretty much harmless. Just be sure to gauge the party first and make sure you are not going to do something that will cause any physical pain to the others. Have fun and enjoy!
