Know a gardener and want to make them a cute gift? Try this DIY Gardener's Hand Scrub! It'll keep your hands soft and squeaky clean when you're not playing in the dirt. - Gather a Bell jar. In this case, a 12oz and an 8oz. Fill them each 3/4 full of sugar. - Add Dawn dish soap (the pink one with Olay beauty Hand Renewel) until it reaches the bottom of the mouth of the jar - Stir the sugar and soap together. Add sugar a little at a time until it becomes like a paste--not runny! - You can choose to add 4 or 5 drops of lemon essential oil. It acts as an antibacterial and antiseptic component. And, it smells great! - For gift-giving you can add a label to the lid and attach a tag with the following instructions: To wash the dirt off your hands, use a small amount and rub. The sugar works like an abrasive to remove the dirt, and the soap washes it all away. Thanks to onegoodthingbyjillee.com for the idea!

This really does work! @peppermintt I love the feeling of dirt under mine, ha! But there are times when we all need clean fingernails :)

Some potting soils are really nasty to your skin so this is a great idea (hello grammy's christmas present!)
