House Plants Help Remove Chemicals

released into the air by paints, cleaners, glue, and other cleaning products. The plants’ physiological process helps remove some volatile organic compounds (VOCs) during the day, and tiny organisms in the soil remove VOCs when the plant is not as active at night.  The plants that remove the most VOCs are: Purple Waffle, Asparagus Fern, English ivy and the Purple Heart plant. (Bodie Pennisi, PhD, Associate Professor of Horticulture, University of Georgia)


Surprising Uses for Toothpaste:  Remove crayon marks from walls with non-gel toothpaste.  Just squirt on a small amount, rub gently with a soft cloth, then rinse with warm water. 

Remove onion and garlic odors from hands by washing with toothpaste (any toothpaste works for this). 

Get rid of scuff marks on the rubber soles of white sneakers by rubbing them with an old toothbrush and toothpaste.  

Eliminate light scratches from a DVD by putting a little toothpaste on a cotton ball, wiping the DVD from the center to the edge, rinsing with water, and drying it with a non-abrasive cloth. (Woman’s Day Magazine)


Remove a White Table Ring: A white ring on wood furniture is most likely a water stain.  Our favorite fix: mix plain white toothpaste with an equal amount of baking soda (usually one-half teaspoon each will work), then massage the mixture into the problem area.  Wipe the paste away and buff dry. If the area seems a little dull, rub with furniture polish or even a little olive oil. (Joan and Lydia Wilen, “Treasures of Home Remedies & Natural Cures”)

“Marla, you truly have made a difference in my life with all the love and wisdom you share. I appreciate your training, expertise, and encouragement for self -growth and change.

Letter from the Executive Director

Hi Everyone,


If you believed in yourself…who would you be now? 

This story is about the art of changing one’s perspective… 

A little boy was overheard talking to himself as he strode through his backyard, baseball cap in place, toting a ball and bat. “I’m the greatest baseball player in the world,” he said proudly. Then he tossed the ball in the air, swung and missed. Undaunted, he picked up the ball, threw it into the air and said to himself, “I’m the greatest player in baseball ever.” He swung at the ball, and again he missed. He then paused a moment to examine the bat and ball carefully. Then once again he threw the ball into the air and said, “I’m the greatest baseball player who ever lived.” He swung the bat hard and again missed the ball. Without any hesitation he said, “Wow, I’m the greatest pitcher ever!

Some people succeed because they are destined to; most succeed because they are determined to. ~Anatole France

Let 2015 be an amazing year as you create great successes in reaching your goals personally, financially, and live a lifestyle you love. 

Happy New Year.

To Your Success,

Marla Brucker, DCH, R.HA
