Amazing Grout Cleaner Here's the formula: 7 cups warm water 1/2 cup baking soda 1/3 cup ammonia 1/4 cup vinegar Now this much liquid didn't even close to fit into my tiny little spray bottle and it probably won't fit in yours either, so here is the recipe halved and quartered.

Cleaning tile grout: 1 3/4 c water 2 Tbsp baking soda 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp ammonia 1 Tbsp vinegar Mix the ingredients in a spray bottle and shake. Spray the grout and let the spray sit and absorb a little into the grout. Be generous. With a grout brush, scrub the grout vigorously where the spray has been sitting. Use a clean damp rag to wipe each line of grout right after you scrub it to pick up all the dirty liquid. Mop and towel dry the entire floor.

How to Remove Scratch Marks from Dishes with Bar Keepers Friend -- I wonder if this will work on my kitchen sink
How to remove scratch marks from dishes, and other cleaning tips.
How to Remove Scratch Marks from Dishes Almost 18 years ago, as a wedding gift, I got simple, plain white dishes. I love them. They go with all of the plain white serving platters and bowls I've collected over the years. For the last 10 years, they've been covered in scratch marks from my silverware. I tried scrubbing them with baking soda like Heloise said I should. Nothing. I tried the Magic Eraser. Not so magical. I was ready to buy new dishes. I decided to stop in at our local Ace Hardware. The helpful clerk suggested I try Barkeepers Friend. I applied the Liquid Bar Keepers Friend with a damp sponge and a little elbow grease. For the really tough scratches, I added a bit of the powdered version and applied a little more elbow grease. The results speak for themselves.

How to clean microfiber couch - - with rubbing alcohol!!
How to Clean Microfiber Furniture The microfiber sofa in our living room has seen better days, but I'm not letting it go without a fight! I bought the sofa about six years ago when I moved into my first solo apartment. It's super comfy and I love the simple, but sophisticated design. The big problem is the color... I love the super light tan, but it shows every little bit of dirt that touches it. Not too practical for our 60 pound furry friend! Calvin doesn't shed at all, but he does tromp in dirt from the yard. He's also turned the couch into his own personal napkin and loves to rub his face along the front edge to dry off after taking a drink. After a while, the front of the cushions look like this (gross, I know): While microfiber is stain resistant, it can be a real challenge to clean because it's a polyester-based material so water will leave a permanent mark when it dries. That means most carpet and upholstery cleaners won't work. We almost got rid of the couch before we moved because it had gotten so nasty, but after piecing together a few tricks from the magical internet, I tried one more last-ditch effort to clean it and it worked! Here's the scoop... Step 1: Vacuum with a brush attachment to remove any hair/crumbs/etc Step 2: Spray rubbing alcohol onto the dirty area This sounds a bit crazy, but it's key. The alcohol won't saturate the fabric and evaporates much quicker than water so it won't leave a mark. Just test in an inconspicuous spot if you're worried about colorfastness. Step 3: Rub vigorously with a clean scrub sponge Make sure the scrubbing surface is white or the color could transfer. Plus you'll be able to see all the grime coming off your furniture. Be prepared to be grossed out (and secretly thrilled) - this sponge was white before! Step 4: Let the area dry completely The fabric may look stiff or dark in places, but the next step will take care of that. Step 5: Rub with a clean, soft scrub brush in a circular motion Again, be sure to use a brush with white bristles to avoid discoloration. This step fluffs up the surface of the fabric to make it soft again. That's it... very simple, but effective! Check out the before and after...
The online article describes the stain remover mixture as consisting of one part Dawn dishwashing liquid mixed with two parts HYDROGEN PEROXIDE (which of course I have OODLES of for making my Miracle Cleaner). The author then goes on to say "you pour the mixture directly on the stain, and watch it disappear like MAGIC."

Clean your shower and tubs (or tile) Instructions 1. Halve Grapefruit: 1 medium to large grapefruit will clean your entire bath or shower from top to bottom, including all the fixtures. Simply cut it in half with a knife and you'll be all set. 2. Sprinkle With Salt: Using 1 grapefruit half at a time, sprinkle liberally with salt. Wet your bathtub and sprinkle the remaining salt around the bottom. 3. Take That Scrubbing Bubbles!Scrub your grapefruit around your shower or tub, making sure to slightly "juice" the citrus over each fixture and lifting it every few seconds to pick up fresh salt from around the tub instead of just pushing it around. 4. Rinse: When all is said and done, simply rinse away the pulpy bits and the salt and your shower is as good as new. Not only is it clean, it will smell so fantastic you'll want to curl up in it and read a book. Ok, probably not, but you get the idea! Additional Notes: This technique will get thick grime and dirt rings off your shower area and does amazing work on cast iron tubs especially. You can also use this method to clean your sinks, toilets, tile and more — it just depends on how grapefruit crazy you want to get!
