Make a paste with diatomaceous earth and water to make a metal polish. Diatomaceous Earth also makes a very inexpensive soft scrub for the shower, sink and faucets.
Face Mask and Cleanser:
Mix diatomaceous earth and water together until you have made a paste. Apply to the face with circular scrubbing motion until face is fully covered. Leave on face for approx. 2 min. and then wash off with warm water. Your face will be fully exfoliated and toned for pennies!! Mix diatomaceous earth with your favorite cleanser and you will have cleaner, smoother skin.
Sprinkle a small amount on your favorite brand of toothpaste and brush as you normally would. You will notice that your teeth look and feel "Just went to the dentist" clean.
Garage/Driveway Oil Stains:
To remove oil stains from garage floor or driveway: Make sure area is dry and completely cover the stain with diatomaceous earth. Let the powder soak up the oil for 24 hours. Remove the excess with a metal spatula or paint scraper and dispose.
Diatomaceous Earth can be used in the same way as baking soda to banish odors. Leave an open box or jar of DE in the refrigerator and freezer. Replace with fresh DE every week or so.
For fresh smelling footware, place some diatomaceous earth into the ends of two knee high nylon stockings and tie a knot the top. Place the stockings inside shoes or boots. Leave until used again.
To remove stains from carpets, cover the stain with diatomaceous earth and lightly work into the stain. Let set for at least 2 hours and vacuum up.
Garbage Can Odor:
To deodorize a garbage can with diatomaceous earth, sprinkle a cup or so of diatomaceous earth in the bottom of the garbage can. Will deodorize and absorb moisture.
