The Very Best Homemade DIY Ant Killer - You'll need:1 cup of sugar1/2 cup of water1 Tablespoon of Borax. Mix it all together and you're ready to take action!If you have pets or kids, you'll want to keep the solution away from them. One idea is to put it in an old plastic container with holes poked in the lid for the ants to get in and put a little bit of plain sugar water (no Borax) outside of the container to lure the ants over.Since we still have these old peel 'n stick floors here's what I do: Take an old tupperware lid and place it over top. I propped it up with a little piece of chalk to give the ants enough room to get in.However you set up your solution, you'll want to place it right where you previously saw the ants walking to be sure they find it.
You won't believe how easy it is to get rid of all those ants for good. #garden #landcape #insecticide #DIY #remedy #homemade #ants

Clean a stainless steel sink with baking soda| 37 Ways to Give Your Kitchen a Deep Clean Mix Borax with lemon juice (Tesco's own brand is OK.) into a fairly stiff paste and keep in a small lidded plastic container. This is one of excellent cleaning materials for cleaning sinks and baths made from products you will probably already have in your cupboard. Rinse well when finished and it will really make them shine. If you are feeling a trifle pushed for time, a small amount of bicarbonate of soda sprinkled directly into the sink and then rubbed with a damp cloth produces excellent results. Bicarbonate of Soda is one of the best and safest cleaning materials. It doesn't scratch, doesn't stain and is so easy to use. Just right for the busy lady (or man). Another of our good, secret household cleaning tips.
