Keep one in the shower filled with a mixture of half vinegar and half Dawn dishsoap. Use it to wipe down the shower while you are in there and your shower will always be clean.....This is THE magic formula!

Blessing in a Bottle 12 oz. of White Vinegar 12 oz. of Dawn Dish soap 1 tsp. of Laundry Detergent also known as "kitchen Magic" This stuff will get through anything, make your sink and shower shine like new, and save you when just about nothing else works. The laundry detergent is optional-I add it simply to cover some of the vinegar smell!

We'll see. Another spinner says ''Ink Cartridge Low? Not true... this totally works, my printer stopped printing, saying there was no ink, I reset the cartridge and then printed 50 more documents and the ink still hasn't run out!!!''

Homemade Kahlua For any of you interested in making this, make sure you plan ahead. You have to make the Kahlua and then let is set for six weeks. I made mine in the middle of November, so they would be ready to give by Christmas and the recipients could have a drink right away. Homemade Kahlua: 2 cups hot water 2 cups sugar 1 tablespoon instant coffee 1 tablespoon vanilla 2 cups vodka 1/2 cup good brandy

MATTRESS spring cleaning: pour about 1 cup of baking soda into a mason jar and drop in 4 drops of lavender essential oil. Put on the lid and shake up the jar.Using a kitchen strainer sprinkle the baking soda mixture all over the mattress and let it sit. I leave it for an hour or more, usually the time it takes for me to finish washing all the bedding and press the bed skirt. Using the hose end of your vacuum and an upholstery attachment, thoroughly vacuum the mattress. Bye, bye dust mit...

Critter Spray...for everything that eats your garden.

How to Plant Garlic Buy garlic at your local grocery store. Separate into separate cloves & pick the biggest ones to plant. Plant the garlic “root” end down. Plant the cloves 4" apart & the pointed tips are covered by 1-2" of dirt. Once the scapes form during the summer, pinch them off so the plant’s energy can go towards forming the bulb, not the scape flower. By August, the plant leaves will start to dry out & turn brown. Once all the leaves & stems are brown, they’re ready to harvest.

How to make your own: peanut butter, yogurt, bread, spaghetti sauce, pasta, biscotti, salsa, guacamole, jams and jellies, baby food, granola bars, cheeses, barebecue sauce, ice cream, hummus, pesto, applesauce, pretzels, potato chips and dog treats.
