As you might have guessed by now I am passionate about making things out of fabric and, whilst it’s summer, gardening too. However, these two activates do not go hand in hand for my hands, especially when I have to “perform’ on Sew Quarter! A friend once gave me this top tip and I use this to I give my hands a makeover before going on TV or just before I start sewing to keep my precious project clean!
1. Cut a lemon in half and give your hands, especially the nails a good scrub with it. The acidity of the lemon cleans grained in dirt from the garden and brightens your nails.
2. Next, grab a handful of sea salt and add a splash of olive oil and once again give your hands a very good scrub with this mixture. This exfoliates and moisturises and is something the romans used to do in their Roman baths.
3. Rinse and admire, all should be transformed!
