Once a month, add a cup of Distilled White Vinegar & 1 Cup of Baking Soda directly into the drum and use HOT water for washing. Then, I add about ½ cup of vinegar into the fabric softener compartment and ½ cup of baking soda into the detergent compartment. Set the wash on “Quick Wash” with HOT water and High Spin Cycle. If the mold situation is really bad,use bleach instead of vinegar and baking soda. But make sure you run a few empty cycles just with hot water before doing a load of wash.

From another pinner, "Pretty gray -- sherwin williams "Pavillion Beige" I have painted my past three houses this color. I always get asked what the color is. It is a beige grey color. Perfection!!!!!"

Blend and go...mix up a single serving of your favorite smoothie. Pop on the sports lid, and you're off! This would be perfect for morning smoothies!

Well duh! Why didnt i think of this!? This is the most genius thing I have seen in a while!! Totally uses that dead space in the closet and keeps it really easily accessible..

Clean Hardwood Floors Use boiling water and two teabags to clean hardwood floors. The tannic acid in tea creates a beautiful shine for hardwood floors. Let two teabags steep in the boiling water for a few minutes. Pour the tea into a bucket. Take a soft cloth and wring it out in the tea. The cloth merely needs to be damp, not soaked. This will enable the floor to dry quickly. Wash the floor and be ready to be amazed by the sheen... and no sticky or oily residue

Super-organized utility closet (love the shoe organizer for cords/batteries/flashlights)

Air Freshener Part of getting your home clean is also knocking out nasty odors in the air. So try this homemade air freshener on for size. To make a basic air freshener, squeeze juice from a fresh lemon into a cereal bowl half filled with baking soda. Leave the dish uncovered. *Lemon also kills mold, so when you're done squeezing out that lemon juice, grind up the lemon leftovers in the garbage disposal to get rid of food molds and residue.

Clean your oven using only vinegar and baking soda. Makes oven look new...inside:)

For laundry room...instead of the ugly tide bottle, use a drink dispenser for detergent. Pretty and you can see how low your getting!!

Blue Dawn dish soap + hydrogen peroxide are all it takes to get rid of even the toughest carpet stains (that black stuff on the left photo is ACRYLIC PAINT)!

House smelling weird? Put two caps full of vanilla extract in a coffee cup, then place it in the oven at 300 degrees for one hour. Within twenty minutes the whole house smells like Heaven. It's actually a common realtor trick.

Hang crown molding for shoe storage in a wasted space in the closet.
