so helpful...cleaning a front loader
MATTRESS spring cleaning:pour about 1 cup of baking soda into a mason jar and drop in 4 drops of lavender essential oil. Put on the lid and shake up the jar.Using a kitchen strainer sprinkle the baking soda mixture all over the mattress and let it sit. I leave it for an hour or more, usually the time it takes for me to finish washing all the bedding and press the bed skirt. Using the hose end of your vacuum and an upholstery attachment, thoroughly vacuum the mattress. Bye, bye dust mites and other nasty things. The baking soda helps draw up any moisture and deep dirtiness. It deodorizes and leaves the mattress smelling fresh and clean. I also love the faint scent of lavender left by the essential oil.
Revive old cookie sheets - sprinkle baking soda, sprinkle peroxide then a bit more baking soda...wait a while then rub away the grime!!
Another pinner said: "btw...my sister and i made this, figured it was worth a try...& by FAR the best laundry detergent EVER! only need a tablespoon per load (we just use the oxy scoop) and it smells so good! Needless to say, I will NEVER purchase another laundry detergent brand. This has inspired me to make more homemade cleaning products :) very exciting!" Laundry soap recipe - $20 for 9+ months' worth of soap.
Homemade laundry detergent
Homemade Laundry Detergent with Dawn - To make - 3 Tablespoons Borax 3 Tablespoons Washing Soda 2 Tablespoons Dawn Dish soap Pour 4 cups of VERY HOT water into a gallon jug. I just use water from the kitchen faucet, it doesn’t need to be boiling. Swirl each bottle until all the ingredients are dissolved in the liquid. Then fill almost to the top with cold water.
Super, easy, and cheap! No-cook laundry soap.
Homemade laundry detergent... I made it today after making some homemade fabric softner. This recipe says you can add some essential oils, so I did. I can't wait to try this stuff =)
just love all these things I can make myself (but I never have)...
I like the idea of making my own foaming hand soap... especially in a scent that I love. (BTW, the recipe calls for something called Castille soap, and apparently you can find it at Target).
Homemade Fabric Softener
Save LOADS of money by making your own fabric softener!
Add orange peels (or any citrus peel) to a quart of white vinegar in a closed container and let it set for two weeks. Combine citrus/vinegar solution half/half with water and use for cleaning. Works on floors, tile, fixtures, etc. Smells good and is tough on scum! Best of all there are no chemicals.
