$0.15 Homemade Febreze: What you'll need: 1/8 Cup of fabric softener (I used Downy April Fresh) 2 tablespoons Baking Soda Hot tap water Spray bottle (I used my empty 27 oz. Febreze bottle) combine all in bottle, shake well and use! Much better than 6 bucks a pop.
Goodbye to yellow armpit stains! 1 tsp. Dawn, 3-4 tsp. Hydrogen Peroxide, 2 tbsp. baking soda. Mix together, rub in, and be amazed!
Clothes keep slipping off plastic hangers? Use a hot glue gun to apply a zig zag pattern on the arms of your plastic hangers to prevent all your wide-necked shirts from falling off. Works like a charm!
Fake Windex I was so satisfied with the Fake Febreeze for 15 Cents, that I began wondering what other common household cleaners I could make on the cheap. There's tons of resources out there for DIY cleaners, but I want to REPLICATE as closely as possible the Real Thing! Probably the Number One Cleaner I use in my house is Windex. With 4-year old, AKA "Mr. Sticky Fingers" and Scottie Dog, AKA "Mr. Greasy Nose" in the house, I use it a lot! Credit In all honesty, I have tried to use the Dollar Tree version of Windex. To me, it just seems too watery and it leaves lots of streaks. Guess some things are just not the same as the name brand....until now! Here's what you need: 1 Empty Windex Spray Bottle 1/8 Cup (1oz) White Ammonia 1/4 Cup (4oz) Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol 1 Drop Laundry Detergent Water - To Fill The Bottle Isn't it nuts how most of what we're paying for is WATER? Anyway, I tried this "refill" of my Windex and it's awesome! No streaks & it even smells like the real thing! I used a 64 oz bottle of Ammonia and a 16 oz bottle of Rubbing Alcohol that I picked up for $1.00 each at the Dollar Tree. Wait till you see how cheap it is to "fake" your own Windex:
Fake Febreeze 1/8 Cup of Your Favorite Fabric Softener 2 Tablespoons Baking Soda Hot Tap Water - To Fill the Bottle to the Top Shake it up in your Spray Bottle and you're ready to go and fight those Stinky Dog Odors! bottl, homemad febreez, homemad febrez, the real, household, fabric softener, fake, dog, diy home
Recycling Candles. Apparently this works so well scentsy is upset about the post! great tut.. I'm posting it in case scentsy makes them take it down! If you have a scentsy warmer, melt down your old candles, pour them into ice cube trays, freeze for 20 minutes then pop them out and store them away in bags and use in your scentsy (or any other warmer). No wasted candles and in this economy, every little bit helps! recycl candl, idea, candl warmer, ice cubes, wax, ice trays, scented candles, ice cube trays, 20 minut
Using a candle warmer, melt your favorite scent, then pour into an ice cube tray. Freeze for about 20 minutes until hard and pop right out. Hello Scentsy refills!!!
Take your favorite liquid fabric softener and soak an old hand towel or flour cloth completely with it. Wring it out and let it dry completely, then throw it in with your next load. This mega-fabric softener sheet should be good for at least 40 loads of laundry, stretching out softener use and lessening waste.
