In that spirit, we are excited to launch the Home Remedy Challenge. Enter your home remedies for a chance to win a Kindle Fire, a Sense sleep monitor, essential oil diffuser and more.

Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Home Remedies Challenge. If you have entries currently eligible for entry, it will also show up by clicking "Enter this Contest" on the right side of this page.


Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday - Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time.
