How to keep your house clean with four easy daily routines.
One of those gross things you really NEED to know as a parent- How to Clean Up Vomit...1. clean up excess off the affected area. 2. make a paste of BAKING SODA and Water; 3. Take a spatula or spoon and generously spread it onto the affected area. It is almost like frosting a cake, except way less appetizing; 3. Let it dry overnight or until it becomes a powdery consistency again; 4. Vacuum it up!; 5. Repeat if necessary. I wish I'd learned this a long, long time ago!
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!
The homemade "Oxiclean" is awesome!! another pinner said "I tried it on a 5 year old white baby onesie that was discolored around the neck and it worked just like or even faster than the real Oxiclean! I have a bright white onesie again!"
