How to keep a toilet clean ~~ much longer. -1/4 Cup of Baking Soda -1/2 Cup of Vinegar -2 Cups of Hot Water
Hmmm. I wonder if this actually works... made 3 gallons for around $4.00 last year after seeing a pin. Worked better than Round Up & killed the weeds/stray grass on first application. One gallon of APPLE CIDER VINEGAR, 1/2 c table salt, 1 tsp Dawn. Mix and pour into a smaller spray bottle. (you can purchase 3 gallon size Apple Cider Vinegar in the canning section of a good hardware store - cheap!)
Interesting stuff. Might be worth trying some of it.
dryer sheet cuts your bathroom cleaning time in half - makes mirrors & bath fixtures sparkle and cuts right through soap scum on bathtub.Use to get sticky dust right off of furniture, blinds and baseboards. Cleans up cooktops and greasy cupboards quickly. Soak paintbrushes in warm water with a dryer sheet and watch the paint come right off. Clean dead, icky bugs from the car. Wipe pet hair off of clothes and furniture. Also removes crayon melted in the dryer :D
(great to remember for move-out or in) Place a dishwasher-safe cup filled with plain white vinegar on the top rack of the dishwasher. Using the hottest water available, run the dishwasher through a cycle. The vinegar will help to wash away the loose, greasy grime, sanitizes, and helps remove the musty odor. Next, sprinkle a cupful of baking soda around the bottom of the tub and run it through a short cycle. The baking soda will help freshen and removing stains.

I'm so thrilled to have directions for sewing napkins. I actually purchased material to do this a few years ago and then got stuck. This is a great beginning sewing project for people like me (or my daughter -- hint hint ;) I'd love to get some of these for Christmas. You could also make some in a holiday theme to give as gifts; little sets of 8 napkins tied up in a pretty bow - priceless!
