// Slip-proof your rug: To give an area rug some traction, flip it over, and apply lines of acrylic-latex caulk every 6 inches or so. Once dry, you can safely put down your rug; the rubbery strips will hold it in place...via Martha.

In this Crazy Life: Tips and Tricks- Part 2! Apply acrylic latex caulk every 6 in or so for non slip rugs
Great idea!! Martha Stewart taught us that rather than buying those ridiculously expensive anti-slip mats for a rug, just turn it over and run a few lines of acrylic-latex caulk every 6 inches or so. Let dry and flip over and your rug wont be going anywhere!
In this Crazy Life: Tips and Tricks- Part 2! GREAT ideas

"Tub & Shower Magic (blue Liquid Dawn dish soap & white vinegar) - supposed to work AMAZINGLY on soap scum (with no scrubbing)" Just tried this and it works great! I sprayed it on the tub/shower and let it sit for 10 or so minutes before rinsing. Most of it came right off. With a quick swipe of my cleaning brush it looked great. Effective AND cheap!
Tub Shower Magic (Dawn White Vinegar.) 1:Heat vinegar in microwave until hot and pour into squirt bottle. 2:Add the Dawn soap. Put the lid on and gently shake to incorporate. 3:You now have a powerful cleaning product that will melt soap scum and tub and shower buildup, clean sinks, appliances and just about anything. Just spray it on, scrub, rinse and be amazed. For tough soap scum build-up, spray the mixture on and allow it to sit as long as overnight. Then, scrub and rinse.
Tub Shower Magic (Dawn White Vinegar)........ Throwing away all my other shower cleaners and using this from now on!!!
This is Toni; had to repin this. Was skeptical and tried it. It works so well. Have never put so little effort into removal of shower soap scum!! Tub Shower Magic (Dawn White Vinegar).

Good idea! Another pinner says: Paint popsicle sticks the color of every wall in your house. Carry when you shop for furniture, curtains, decorations, other paint...(photo looks like paint stirrers, I think that would be better)
