Red, F -White, S -Yellow. So if today were Thursday, you would
want red twist tie, not white which is Friday's (almost a week
old)! The colors go alphabetically by color Blue - Green - Red -
White -Yellow, Monday through Saturday.

My face is still where it should be, but let me tell ya I'm never gonna do that again!! It definitely removed all the dead skin, and my face is super soft now, but the glue stuck to all the tiny hairs on my face and it HURT when I tried to peel it off!! If I had thought ahead a little, I would have forseen that....

But Melissa, the real question is....did anyone get a picture of you with glue all over your face?

You know, the really funny thing is that hubby emailed this to me this morning with the subject "To post on The Cat Site." Does he know me or what?!?

Also a caution when or if you use the tea for sunburn, it can throw some people into a toxic shock kind of situation. It can once it gets into the pores cause high fevers and chills and make someone really nasty sick!
