Every glass of milk contains protein, calcium and other essential nutrients to build strong bones and healthy bodies that would make your children’s future selves very happy.

Brought to you by the maker of ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda

ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda does more than deodorize your fridge’s funky smells or aid you in baking the perfect brownies. Check out these four of many other Baking Soda hacks that will make you rethink Baking Soda’s place in the kitchen.

Refresh Your Patio Furniture

Cleaning patio furniture after a few seasons of use is a pretty daunting task. But, scrubbing off that stubborn dirt and grime is easy when you use ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda. Just make a paste out of water and ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda, and you’ve got your cleaning solution to wipe down the furniture and pull the dirt right off!

Deodorize Stinky Laundry

Deodorize your stinky clothes and remove that sweaty smell by adding a cup of ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda to every load of laundry (especially those post-game towels and jerseys). Since clean-looking doesn’t always mean clean-smelling, adding ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda will give your laundry detergent a freshening boost. It’s an affordable, easy, and all-natural laundry deodorizer. ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda also comes in multiple packaging options including a waterproof ziplock bag that’s perfect for the laundry room.

Totes Adorbs Volcano

Spark the imagination of your kids with an epic eruption. Help them create their very own homemade volcano with a little help from ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda. Go all out with a massive paper-mache volcano model or keep things on a smaller scale. By adding mixture of food coloring, dishwashing liquid, ¼ cup vinegar, and water to just a 1 tsp. of ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda in a plastic “crater cup,” you can continue to fuel their curiosity in a fun way! To keep this experiment as safe as possible, make sure to supervise your children at all times!

Silky Smooth Skin

To make exfoliating clean and simple, just mix three parts ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda with one part water to create a thick paste. Rub gently on your skin and take care to avoid the eye area and other sensitive areas on your face and body. You’ll have smooth skin in seconds and it’s natural to boot!

Check out this video below to see one of these great and easy tips, then head to ARM & HAMMER’s YouTube Channel and find out about all the other great things you can do with ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda for just pennies a day.

Get Relief Responsibly When Taking Acetaminophen

This story is brought to you by TYLENOL®

Pain relief may seem like it is within easy reach, but following the proper TYLENOL® dosage guidelines– for your back pain, a knee injury, or any
other reason — will help ensure that you’re easing your aches safely as well.

Whether you have frequent back pain or you are simply suffering from cold and flu symptoms, your need for pain relief may seem more important than
carefully following the acetaminophen dosage guidelines on the back of the medicine bottle. But paying attention to the dosing labels on TYLENOL®
and other medicines that include acetaminophen can help you avoid health complications such as liver damage.

More than 600 over-the-counter and prescription medications contain acetaminophen: TYLENOL®, Vicodin®, Percocet®, and NyQuil® to
name a few. When used as directed, acetaminophen is safe and effective. However, if you consume too much, it could lead to an overdose that could
result in liver damage. That’s why it’s important not to exceed the daily recommended acetaminophen dosage every time. You should always read and
follow your medicine labels and remember to take only one medicine at a time which contains acetaminophen.

Whether you are using pain relievers to combat knee pain, dental pain, or a headache, you can easily find out if the medicine you’re taking contains
acetaminophen at http://www.GetReliefResponsibly.com

Johnson & Johnson – Once Upon a Care (Sponsored)

With the ultimate goal of demonstrating that CARE INSPIRES CARE™, Johnson & Johnson asked grade-school children about the most caring thing
they have ever done for someone else. With the help of well-known children’s author Patricia Lakin, they then transformed the children’s stories into
actual children’s books, and surprised students with a copy of their book to read to their parents.

Johnson & Johnson wanted to show parents that they have a tremendous impact on instilling caring values in their children, who ultimately carry the
torch to become the next generation of care. And what J&J learned-from the parents and the children-is that the care you give really does multiply
and come back to the world.

Download copies of the e-book at careinspiresare.com, and join us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/careinspirescare to read more inspiring stories.
