Reese Witherspoon Visits Her Walk of Fame Star to Give It a Little Cleaning: ‘Don’t You Let People Walk All Over You’

Reese Witherspoon paid a visit to an old friend on Sunday — and helped her get a little spruced up.

The actress posted a series of hilarious videos to her Instagram Story, documenting her trip to Hollywood’s Walk of Fame to see her own star.

“I’m running a little bit lake for work today but it’s really important,” said Witherspoon in the first clip. “I heard my friend is really close by, so I want to go meet her really quick and I want you guys to meet her too.”

As the 41-year-old approached her star, she told her followers, “This is so exciting guys, here she is!”

She quickly whipped out a tissue, giving her star a little buffing.

“Oh, now you’re looking good, girl,” she joked, adding, “And don’t you let people walk all over you!”

The A Wrinkle in Time actress received the star back in 2010, bringing her daughter Ava Phillippe, now 18, and son Deacon Phillippe, now 14, along for the ceremony.

She also posted an Instagram photo of herself on the Walk of Fame, writing, “When you run into a friend on the street.”

This past week, Witherspoon appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, jokingly competing with the host and fellow guest Oprah Winfrey over their friendships. Though the trivia competition about Winfrey’s life was fierce, DeGeneres was ultimately the winner.

Spring Cleaning for the Soul

We all know that this winter has been pretty rough with the seemingly endless blizzards, ice storms and sub-zero weather. But March marks the beginning of spring — the season of change. Mother Nature runs her course, thawing life out of the winter cold and breathing new life into spring. People seem to reflect that same change this time of year as well. Researchers have noted that spring is often a time where people step out of a stagnant and enclosed mindset into a more relaxed state of mind.

But before we can pack away our puffy coats and bring out our favorite espadrilles let’s take the time to make goals for our spring. In the few weeks of cold that we still have left, I encourage you to focus on the goals you made at the beginning of the year (you remember those New Year’s resolutions, right?) and the things you want to rid yourself of moving forward. Here are a few suggestions for some mental spring cleaning before we whisk away into our short shorts:

Sweep out unhealthy relationships: Can’t stop thinking about the ex that wronged you? Feeling hurt by the emotional absence of someone who used to be a friend? Not enjoying the way certain people in your life make you feel? There will always be people in your life that may not be the healthiest friends or colleagues for you, whether that’s in the workplace, school, or your daily life. Realizing someone is not healthy for you is a process. The actual act of cleaning them out, may involve simple habit changes. Unplugging on social media can be a great first step. Instead of unfriending or unfollowing someone specific, spend a couple of days completely off of Facebook and Twitter and simplify your life. If it feels good, unplug even more. Once you stop worrying about that person or people online you’ll start to relax and forget about how they made you feel in real life. If social media isn’t your thing, try to make an extra effort for the friends who do make you feel good. Plan a girls night with the ladies who have stuck by your side, invite a friend who you haven’t had a ton of time for to lunch, allow yourself to enjoy the people who care about you! One of the hardest things to learn in life is how to let people go, it’s hard but if you put your attention on the relationships that actually give you something, you’ll feel better!

Scrub your mental space: We are so consumed by the hustle and bustle of every day life that we often allow things to not only pile up on our desk but also in our soul. Spring is a great season to clean out your mind and let positive, balanced energy in. Try a creative venture; read a new book, take 10 minutes out of your day to work on a craft or do some free writing. Or you could simply allow yourself to find inspiration from the mundane. Do you walk to work? Take a train or car? Why not use that time to listen to a new band or find a podcast that could interest you? Have you ever truly explored your own neighborhood, looked at the architecture, gone people watching? Creativity and inspiration are the best cleaning products for the soul.

Rest and tune up: It’s so easy to be sucked into nervous energy throughout our daily life. Deadlines, dues, family, friends, money, health; it’s needless to say we have a lot to worry about. While nervous energy can help us get things done, it can also do a number on our physical and mental health. It’s crucial for our bodies and minds to rest; the No. 1 way? Sleep. Getting eight hours of sleep per night can lengthen your life expectancy and support your immune system. If sleep isn’t an option, try meditation; 20 minutes of meditation per day has been shown to increase emotional and physical health as well as reduce your risk for heart disease. Seeing as the average American watches 4-5 hours of TV a day, finding 20 minutes will be a cinch! Prioritize resting your body and mind and you will wake up with more energy this spring.

There are a million ways to let spring influence your life. Let yourself breathe, rest, enjoy the people you love, and allow yourself to let go of those who make you feel insecure and unhappy. Get inspired by your world and community and enjoy the soul change this season!

11 Foods That Double As Cleaning Products

Ketchup is delicious, sure, but did you know that it’s also effective at polishing copper? Yea, bet you find it a little less appetizing now. But ketchup isn’t the only condiment or food that has dual purposes. In fact, many of the things you eat all the time have uses other than just keeping you satiated.

Here are 11 foods that do double-duty as cleaning products. You should always remember these, if for no other reason than they will save you money.

1. Banana peels can polish silver

bananasilver

Don’t throw away that banana peel just yet. If your prized silverware collection is starting to get a bit tarnished, just rub the inside of a banana peel along the tarnished parts on your silver and it will help them look as good as new.

2. Cucumber peels can remove marks on walls and tables

cucumber

According to Saudia Davis, the founder and CEO of Greenhouse Eco-Cleaning, cucumbers are extremely versatile cleaning products. The peels can remove marks on countertops and walls; and if you want a non-foggy bathroom mirror when you get out of the shower, just rub cucumber peel on it before you start the water.

3. Use ketchup to brighten up your copper pots and pans

ketchup

All you’ve got to do is dab some of ketchup on a cloth on whatever copper item you have that needs some polishing, and let it sit for five to thirty minutes. The acids in the condiment will remove the tarnish.

4. A raw onion will clean your dirty grill grates

onion

The folks over at The Kitchn report that if you run half of a raw onion against your grill grates with the cut side down, it will work to remove all the grease and leftover grit on the grill. Your best option is to heat up your grill first to help burn off any attached food or grime, then add the onion to the end of a large fork and go at it.

5. Use walnuts to remove scratches on wood furniture

walnut

Here’s how it works: You peel the walnut from its shell and rub the nut part along the scratch. Then, run your finger over the scratch to help penetrate the oils. Let it sit for five minutes. Finally, use a soft cloth to buffer the area, and voila! Hopefully you now have a scratch-free piece of wood.

6. Your regular table salt will help remove a red wine stain

salt

Next time someone accidentally spills their glass of red on your brand new white couch, immediately grab the table salt in the kitchen. Ingrid Johnson, Professor and Assistant Chairperson of Textile Development and Marketing at Fashion Institute Of Technology (FIT), recently told The Huffington Post that table salt is “the first and easiest thing to do” since it will absorb the wine.

7. A slice of white bread will help pick up little pieces of broken glass

bread

The answer to picking up all those annoying little shards of glass is devastatingly simple: Grab a piece of Wonder Bread, dampen it, and dab it on all the little pieces.

8. Rice will clean your coffee grinder

rice

This little trick, provided by Food52, works for spice grinders, as well. Take some uncooked rice and put it in your grinder. Grind it up until it becomes dust. When you remove that dust, it will also remove any coffee bean or spice fragments left in your grinder. Then you can just clean off the rest of it with a damp cloth.

9. Olive oil will remove sap

oliveoil

Perhaps one of your kids brushed up against some sap while playing outside and then sat on the couch, and now… well… there’s sap on your couch. Grab the olive oil. Real Simple says when you dab a tablespoon of it on a cloth and rub it on the affected area, it should loosen up that sap in no time.

10. Cornmeal will remove grease stains on fabric

cornmeal

A pantry staple can remove that dreaded pizza stain. Just cover the stain entirely will cornmeal and let it sit for 15-20 minutes. Once you vacuum the cornmeal away, the stain should be absorbed. Then all you have to do is clean the fabric as your normally would.

11. Use Coca-Cola to clean your toilet bowl

coketoilet

The acids in Coca-Cola will help remove any toilet bowl stains, apparently. So, grab a can and pour the whole thing into your toilet. Let the soda sit in there and do its magic for an hour. Then scrub the bowl and flush. Your toilet should be sparkling clean after.
