I'm currently obsessed with these. Seriously. They get everything out of my light carpet, from red juice to old dirt from shoes to markers! They even got 6 month old smoothie out of my car's upholstery! Not to mention their ability to clean dry erase surfaces that have met a permanent marker! And you just thought they were for cleaning kids! Ha!

I am in heaven - I saw it on somebody else's pinterest, but can't remember who - i did the white vinegar and dawn dish soap to clean the shower tonight. AMAZING!!!!!!! I did one cup each. Put it in a squirt bottle, shook it up - sprayed it on and let it sit for about an hour - came back and with a soft sponge, it wiped right off!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE

Hot Vinegar and Dawn Soap! Seriously, I saw this on Pinterest and decided to try it on my white shower tile...My husbands factory job STICKS to it no matter what! Ive tried everything but NOTHING has ever cleaned it like this! So easy and WOW! 1 cup of HOT Vinegar (microwave 1-2 min) and 1 cup of blue DAWN liquid soap. Shake into bottle and creates a gel that is OUT OF THIS WORLD! Thank you Pinterest!
