2It can be used to remove makeup.
3Great tanning oil (no sunscreen).
4Hot oil treatment to soften cuticles.
5Great massage oil for tired muscles.
6Cleans off tape marks left from bandages on skin.
7Cleans ink off the skin.
8Insect repellent.
9Helps relieve itching caused by dry skin.
10Cleans oil and grease off of skin.
11Painting something? Use SSS to remove paint from the hands. (Instead of turpentine).
12It soothes light sunburn.
13Rub hands with it before washing, it helps get them cleaner.
14Rub on dry, cracked skin.... helps heal skin in 2-3 days.
15Put 1-2 cap fills in liquid soap and use it for shaving legs and under arms.
16Pour a little into your Foot Saver to help moisturize your feet while you relax them.
17It removes chewing gum from hair, skin, and most nonporous surfaces.
18Cleans permanent ink off stamps.
19Bath Oil works GREAT on Head Lice!!!!! Saturate head and let it set for 15 minutes. Then rinse under an outdoor faucet, lice will be gone! Of course shampoo hair a couple of times to get the oil out, but the lice were gone and stayed gone!
20It kills ants instantly.
21Spray on skin to relieve dry itching skin. Helps skin retain it's elasticity
22Wash hair with shampoo and conditioner like always and after it dries.... Use a dime-sized dab of SSS and rub it in your hair. It goes straight in and leaves hair as shiny as the ads on TV, not greasy at all, just soft and shiny.
23Use bath oil towelettes -- cover window sill with towelettes to keep ants out.
24(LICE) Sometimes, using a bath oil, like Avon's SSS, will work to loosen the glue, which holds the nits to the hair. There is a product called Neon Nits, which when sprayed on the hair, will highlight the nits so you can see them to then snip them out with a small scissors.
25If you have psoriasis on your elbows, an internist recommended trying Avon's SSS bath oil spray. After using SSS, it eliminated the psoriasis on my elbows.
26Bath use, fill bath with water and add a little SSS, very relaxing and gets rid of dry skin.
27Sponge it around doors, windows, and on screens to keep crawling bugs out.
28It's a good wood cleaner and conditioner for natural wood.
29It removes price tag and label glue from glass, metals, and most plastics.
30It removes soap scum from shower doors and curtains, and bathroom and kitchen figures.
31It removes lime and hard water deposits from fixtures, tile, shower doors and windows.
32It's an oil lubricant for fitting pipe joints that won't slip together.
33It cleans ink off most vinyl and painted surfaces.
34It cleans heavy oil and grease from nonporous surfaces.
35It takes fur off of clothing.
36Rub on brass ornaments or figurines to help keep them from turning dark.
37Removes crayon from appliances and most painted surfaces.
38Wash cupboards with it mixed in your cleaning water to keep ants off and out of the cupboards.
39Use it to discourage hornets from building their nests. After using a hornet killing spray, remove the nest and keep the area sprayed with SSS. They will not rebuild there.
40Use it to clean leather; it will also keep it soft and supple.
41Use it on your air conditioning screen (filter)--your incoming air will smell fresher and the filter is easier to clean.
42Rub all over windowsills to keep ants out.
43It cleans paintbrushes easily and leaves them soft as new.
44It removes gum from carpets.
45It removes scuffmarks from patent leather shoes.
46Use it on running rails for sliding glass doors and windows.
47It removes "ring around the collar".
48It removes liquid nail (paneling glue).
49Two glass bowls or glasses stuck together? Drizzle a little SSS down the sides and they'll come apart easily.
50It removes candle wax from furniture, carpets and clothing.
51Hummingbird Feeders: To deter bees try rubbing SSS on the feeder surface by the feeder ports.
52Maggots too!! Apply SSS inside the can and lid, then later, flush with soapy water. You shouldn't have any maggots for the rest of the summer!
53It is a great furniture polish!
54Put SSS in one of those insecticide sprayers on the garden hose. Spray the back yard! This will cut down on ants, mosquitoes and fleas!
55Spray it on your prized roses and even on flowers you place at the cemetery. Keeps both bugs and animals from eating the flowers.
56Kills spiders.
57It cuts grease and cleans dirt from range hoods.
58Add a capful to wash water of clothes...acts as a fabric softener and keeps the bugs off clothes.
59Spray on orchids and other flowers for moisture and to keep bugs away.
60Cleans baseball caps. Just spray on and rub with toothbrush.
61Mix one part SSS and 2 parts water and spray on your tomato plants every 2-3 days to keep tomato worms off.
62SSS bath oil also does a great job cleaning cherry wood cabinets.
63Put a little in your mopping water to help keep crawling bugs out. (Not too much or the floor gets slippery.)
64Use to clean windows.
65Removes crayon from most surfaces.
66It's a great insect repellent (or you can use Bug Guard, the actual SSS repellent).
67Screens can be lightly sprayed with Avon SSS to repel no-see-'ums and tiny gnats that otherwise might slip though the screens.
68Another use for SSS is it will kill those pesky earwigs. Spray it on & they don't return to life.
69Also if you ever make candles, use clear melted wax and put SSS in as it harden. Works great for outdoor use to keep the mosquitoes away.
70As a deodorizer, spray into air and let settle, kills those nasty pet orders.
71Kids rooms if a child wets the bed, spray the bedding and sheets before washing and will give it a fresh clean smell.
72It's a great insect repellent for your pet. (As recommended in "Outdoor Life" and "Field and Stream").
73Mix 5 parts water, 1 part SSS and mist on animals. Brushing it in makes their coats gleam and keeps insects off so the animals don't fidget in the show ring.
74Mix in your pet's bath water. It takes the fleas off of them...and in between sprays them with the same mixture as in #2 to help keep them off.
75Rub on your hands before and after working with your pets and farm animals. It will remove the strong smells.
76Black Fly Spray For Dogs: Use as a spray or a dip. 1 cup SSS, 1/2 cup liquid detergent and 3 gallons of water.
77For dogs dry skin mix 1 tablespoon of SSS per gallon of water and use as an after bath rinse. Or spritz your pet's coat once per week.
78If your dog should get tar or asphalt on the pads of their feet rub on SSS and then wipe off.
79Flea Bath: Use a flea and tick shampoo. Rinse, rinse, rinse so no soap residue is left. Follow with final rinse of 2 gallons of water mixed with flea dip and 1 capful of SSS. The SSS helps replace the oils lost in bathing and has the added benefit of repelling insects.
80Flea Repellent: Avon's SSS Bath Oil. 1-1/2 ounces per gallon of water; used as a sponge-on dip (or as a spritz) has been tested and proven to have significant, but not complete, flea-repellent activity for a 6-day period. It should help those dry coats, too.
81If you have a Chow, they are notorious for dry, flakey skin. Add SSS bath oil on their skin and it does wonders!
82I use the following on my horses and on my dogs when necessary. 1-cup Avon SSS bath oil 1-cup white vinegar 1-cup (or more) water 5 cc of essential oil of citronella (from the health food store NOT the type you burn to keep insects away that is available in a drug store) Mix in a spray bottle. Straight SSS works well for mosquito’s too but really makes your dog greasy.
83(Barns) Use of an inexpensive fly control spray or a diluted mix of Avon SSS in water can be sprayed on barn walls and floor to discourage insects from hanging around or to eliminate them before putting in the new bedding. As time permits, and if you can keep your goats out of the barn for a few hours - let the barn stand and air out before re-filling with bedding.
84Rub on your hands before and after working with pets and farm animals, takes away pet odor.
85Avon's SSS bath oil massaged directly into the skin of your Rottweiler acts not only as a successful repellant and makes their dogs smell good but helps prevent drying and itchy skin.
86A natural way to help cats with flea problems and flea allergies is to rub Skin So Soft into the skin. Once a bug, always a bug. Fleas don't like it either! Spread the word!
87Cats: SSS IS SAFE FOR FUR LICKING -------The SSS plus is safe as long as it is the one without sunscreen.
88Don't overuse the SSS. I just use the lotion, and rub it into the skin, not more than every few days. My cat's sensitive and we're being careful. Common sense is the rule. Sprinkling Yeast on the cat food helps, too. My cat's fur is medium-length; he's part Persian, and he's doing fine, no ill effects from the SSS. You can check with your vet to be sure if it's okay.
89SSS can be used as a hoof polish. This will put a nice shine to the hoof without drying it. The farrier's wife will appreciate this one!
90SSS can be used as a muzzle, eye, and ear enhancer. Generally we used baby oil but it was so messy. I tried SSS and it works great and still helps keep bugs away.
91I have a show mare that has allergies and also gets dry skin very easily so I started giving her baths in SSS. What I do is bathe her like normal and then I put a capful of SSS in a 5-gallon bucket of warm water and sponge this all over her. Her hair coat dries silky soft and she quits itching. Works for her.
92When I have to band (braid) their manes I use SSS Bath Oil. It seems to help hold the braids a lot better and they don't try to rub them out.
93It removes tar spots from the car without damage to the paint.
94Use it to clean vinyl dashboards, seats, and tops. It not only cleans, but also keeps it soft and helps to prevent any cracking.
95After washing your car, use it as a tire dressing to keep them looking like new.
96Put some on a small washcloth and leave in the car to help keep the air fresh and clean.
97Wipe down vinyl surfaces inside your car. Cleans nicely and removes smoke odors left by cigarette smokers.
98It gently cleans heavy grease and oil from skin and nonporous surfaces (great for Mechanic's Hands).
99It removes tree sap.
100Prior to traveling...rub SSS on headlights and grill. It makes insects and bugs easier to remove.
101Open a towelette and use as an automotive air freshener.

These claims are from customers over the years not from Avon itself. Enjoy all the uses of SSS!

5 Skin Conditions Caused By Sun Exposure and How To Protect Yourself

We love the sun! It makes us feel more awake, and ready to go, but what is the sun doing to our skin? A lot actually. If your not protecting your skin, the sun is doing a lot of irreparable damage. Many people do not protect their skin because they want that glow a tan gives, but at what cost?

  1. Types of skin cancer:
  •  Actinic Keratosis - a scaly, crusty bump with dark, tan, pink, or light red coloring affecting mainly face, ears, back, neck, lips, arms, hands, and bald heads.
  • Basal Cell Carcinoma - affects head, hands, neck, and mid section. Looks like small fleshy bumps. It is also the most curable of the other types of skin cancer. Also raises risk of getting other types of skin cancer.
  • Melanoma - may spread to other parts of the body. Signs to look for, moles or other skin tags that are different than others, changes, itches or bleeds, and are painful. Is caused by extreme episodes of sun burn.

UV Rays from the sun is what causes skin cancer. You need to protect your skin even on cloudy days, because the UV rays can penetrate the clouds and still cause you to burn. If you notice an unusual, or painful spot get it checked as soon as possible, it could be the difference in life and death. Early detection is the key to a fast recovery.
Basal Cell Carcinoma
Actinic Keratosis 

    2. Sunburns:
  • Minor sunburns are a real nuisance. Symptoms are, redness, burning, tightness, itching, and peeling of the skin. 
  • Severe sunburns are allot harder to deal with. They symptoms are, shock, weakness, chills, fever, and blisters.

There are ways to sooth sunburned skin. Use aloe lotions to help soothe and hydrate skin. Drink lots of water to keep your self hydrated. Take over the counter pain relievers if needed. Do not irritate peeling skin, it could cause more damage. If symptoms are severe see your doctor as soon as possible. 

   3. Freckles are another form of skin damage. They are light to dark brown dots on your skin that are flat to the touch. It is what can distinguish them from other forms of skin damage. Some people naturally have freckles, but those of us who don't, the freckles we have are caused by sun damage. 

   4. Age spots: They are not caused by us getting older as the name implies, they are caused by damage to our skin caused by the sun, but they do become more noticeable as we age. They are typically found on the hands, arms, face, neck, and chest. They are characterized by flat brown round or oval markings on skin. You can lighten age spots with cream bleaches, or laser surgery if desired.

   5. Solar Elastosis causes lines and wrinkles on your skin. Solar Elastosis is caused by the deterioration of the elasticity of skin.  The skin appears yellow and thickened. 

   There are ways to prevent these conditions caused by sun exposure. With a few simple steps your skin's beauty can last a lot longer than if you were not to protect your skin.

  • Cover up - Wear clothing that you can't see through, if you can see through it so can the sun, hats with a wide brim that will cover your face, neck, and ears.
  • Stay out of the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
  • Make sure you apply a good sun screen (SPF 15 or Higher)  to yourself and children 30 mins. before sun exposure and at least every 2 hours, more often if swimming or sweating. A great option is Avon's Sun + Sunscreen Sprays and Lotions.
  • Wear sunglasses
  • Use a lip balm that has sunscreen.
A great sunscreen to use is Avon + Sunscreen there are 3 to choose from:
Lightweight lotion has broad-spectrum protection against the sun’s rays. Absorbed quickly, leaving skin feeling moisturized. Dermatologist-tested. 3 fl. oz.
Avon Sun+ Sunscreen Lotion SPF 25
Lightweight body lotion has broadspectrum protection against the sun’s rays. Leaves skin feeling moisturized. Dermatologist-tested. 8 fl. oz.
Avon Sun+ Sunscreen Spray SPF 25
Lightweight, oil-free spray has broad-spectrum protection against the sun’s rays. Leaves skin feeling moisturized with a light, fresh scent. Dermatologist-tested. 5 fl. oz.
If you do get burned there is a great product from Avon that will help soothe the burn Avon Sun+ Cooling After Sun Aloe Gel
Lightweight, oil-free after-sun cooling gel with aloe vera moisturizes skin. Lightly scented with no tacky after-feel. 8.4 fl. oz.

True Facts About Mosquitos And How To Reduce Population

 We all hate those dreaded Mosquitoes and wish they would just go away! In this blog post I will discuss mosquito facts and how you can reduce their population on your property, and the best bug repellent for your family. I hope you find this post informative and useful!

  •   Mosquitoes lay their eggs in stagnant water such as, an old tire, bucket of water, puddles, and anything sitting in your yard that has standing water in it. 
  • Some species can develop from egg to adult in as little as 5 days.
  • Females need to feed on blood to produce eggs.
  • Only female mosquitoes suck blood, the males mouth isn't equipped to suck blood.
  • Mosquito eggs can lay dormant for years until covered by water.
  • An adult mosquito can live up to about 5 months.
  • Mosquitoes can transmit diseases to humans like Malaria, Yellow Fever, Filariasis, and West Nile.
  • Mosquitoes can fly from 1 to 1.5 miles an hour.
  • We could possibly eradicate them without any major ecological effects.
  • They were around when the dinosaurs walked the earth.
  • Dark clothing may attract more mosquitoes than like clothing.
  • They use carbon dioxide, body odors, and movement to sense their prey (US!)
Now we need to get rid of as many of the blood suckers that we can. I have compiled a list of ways you can reduce the mosquito population on your property.

  • Empty any standing water reservoirs such as, old buckets, tires (discard these), rain gutters (clean regularly to keep free flowing), kiddie pools, bird baths..........
  • Turn unused items over that may collect rain water.
  • Repair leaks that may cause standing water.
  • Aerate pools or ornamental ponds, mosquitoes prefer, quiet stagnant water to lay eggs.
  • Fill in ditches, and swampy areas to prevent water accumulation.
  • Remove all tall weeds and over growth so they have fewer places to hide.
  • You can use citronella candles but they aren't much more effective than any other candle that produces smoke. 
  • Allot of people swear by bug zappers. We have one and it can be quite entertaining to watch.
What are the best bug repellents for us and our children? Allot of people say that DEET is bad for you skin and I agree, but I also hate the way it feels. It makes your skin feel sticky and just plain nasty at times. I love the insect repellent that Avon has come out with. It's Deet free, and doesn't feel sticky on your skin like the others on the market. It is called Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus, and also contains sunscreen SPF 28. Repels mosquitoes, gnats, no-seeums, sand flies, and biting midges. DEET-free, dermatologist-tested, hypoallergenic
Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus Expedition Insect Repellent
You can check out my Avon store at  for this insect repellent along with the others in this line. There is also another one that Avon carries that is great on the go. Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus Picaridan Bonus Size Towelettes

Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think of this post. I am new in the blogging world and am learning. So I need your feedback to set me in the right direction. Also comment and let me know other ways that we can reduce these buggers!
