great idea for a tiny space. love it

(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.... good to do every 6 mths

DIY nonstick cooking spray. Healthy and get rid of all the chemicals that are in pam! I just discovered there is propane in Pam!!!!!

Maybe should try this.

CRAZY Crisco Candle for emergency situations. Simply put a piece of string in a tub of shortening, and it will burn for up to 45 days. Praying I do not need this info for #hurricanesandy

Pinner says: I started doing this and will never stop! My tub & shower are always spotless-so simple. Simple shower and tub cleaner: fill wand half and half. Wet surface and scrub. wow! leave in shower & wash while you are already in there.

Medicine cabinet remodel. Add some chalkboard paint to the inside of the door... share some love notes. From, Inspire Design and Create

Hang a shower caddy on the opposite side of the shower with a coat hook so it doesn't interfere with the faucet- Duh!!!! And stuff doesn't get all mildewy and gross!

Tame the bathroom counter mess: cut one large shoe organizer in half and use on each side of the cabinet door. Unbelievable! Genius idea. # Pin++ for Pinterest #

painting a frame? use a box to place it in and spray paint outside

Cover a flat cookie sheet ($1 store!) with fabric and get an instant magnet board.

upside down command hook. How to hang a Wreath on a cabinet door. This is an awesome idea!

..how did i never think of this? bobby pin storage

use an old wrapping paper roll to drape fabric for taking pictures..

This long-forgotten gem of a cleaning agent may be used with a little water or vinegar to lift even the most stubborn stains. Unattractive grout driving you batty? Mold and mildew stains got you reaching for the Prozac? Burner pans and casserole dishes giving you fits? Cream of Tartar is your new best friend.
