Getting Dirty For A Deeper Clean

-------


DIATOMACEOUS EARTH/ (dahy-at-uh-mahyt-uhs urth)/n./ 1. A dirtlike substance made from the finely ground fossils of prehistoric algae; n./ 2. Commonly used as a deterrent for household and garden insect pests, it is also a pure, nonabrasive alternative to aluminum-based microdermabrasion treatments, in which mineral-rich particles provide a soft, skin-buffing effect; e.g. “Kick-start your skincare regimen from the ground up, with a diatomaceous-earth face scrub that gently exfoliates dry, dead skin to reveal a more glowing complexion.”

    This is also a great NON-toxic critter killer. I had a cat AND I had roaches and my neighbors told me about it. It is safe if you have pets and kids because some farmers use it in feed bags.
