My grandma taught me this many years ago. Refreshing towels I use this trick all the time since I noticed my towels smelling funky. It works! - Over time, towels build up detergent and fabric softener, leaving them unable to absorb as much water and smelly. Recharge them by washing them once with hot water and 1cup vinegar, then a 2nd time with hot water and half cup baking soda. This strips the residue and leaves them fresh and able to absorb more water again. Works like a charm!

Cleaning Greasy Oven Filters: Fill your biggest pot with water and bring it to a boil. Add 1/2C of baking soda VERY SLOWLY! (about a Tbs at a time because it fizzes) Then take your caked-with-grease filter and submerge it in the pot. (Well, 1/2 of it anyway.) Boil several minutes. Rinse until water runs clear.

to get rid of the nasty black gunk in your drain: 1. Boil a pot of water. 2. Meanwhile pour baking soda down the drain. 3. Once the water has reached a rolling boil pour it down the drain. 4. Let the water and baking soda work at decomposing and sterilizing the grime for 10 minutes. 5. After 10 minutes, pour 1 cup of bleach down the drain to completely kill any remaining mildew or bacteria. Do this process every few months. It will also keep the nasty mildew smell at bay.
