How to Remove Permanent Marker

This is crazy. Mix 1/4 c Listerine (any kind but I like the blue), 1/4 c vinegar and 1/2 c of warm water. Soak feet for 10 minutes and when you take them out the dead skin will practically wipe off. Must try

Once a month, add a cup of distilled white vinegar and a cup of baking soda during the HOT cleaning cycle. I pour them directly into the drum. Then, I add about ½ cup of vinegar and ½ cup of baking soda into the detergent dispenser.

Over time, towels build up detergent and fabric softener, leaving them unable to absorb as much water and smelling funky. Recharge them by washing them once with hot water and one cup vinegar, then a second 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!

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

1 cup vinegar + 1 cup hot water + 10 minutes in microwave = steam clean! Totally works. No more scum, no funky smells. Easy Peasy!

Add a cup of baking soda to the toilet, leave it for an hour, and then flush. It will clean the toilet and absorb the odor. This site also has 75 other uses for baking soda!

Holy Shlamoly... This is a life changer!! Each member of the family has a mesh lingerie laundry bag, and a hook. They put their dirty socks and underwear in the bag each night. On laundry day, you wash the whole mesh zipped up bag, and give it back! No more sorting through and figuring out which socks are for which person. I love this idea!!
