Interesting - wonder if it works? ??? Really ??? Punch a hole in the top of a bottle of vinegar and sit the bottle in your toilet tank. In doing this you will save water, as the tank wont fill as much, the vinegar will clean your toilet AND tank on each flush, it leaves the bathroom smelling fresh and it doesn't harm any component of your toilet OR the environment when flushed. And won't hurt the dogs when they drink out of the toilet like the blue stuff does.

If you want your house to smell heavenly, boil some orange peels with a 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon on Medium heat. ~ I do this come Fall and everyone loves it - an old Southern trick

64 Important Numbers Every Homeowner Should Know

64 Important Numbers Every Homeowner Should Know -- correct placement measurements for bath, kitchen, laundry, office, living room

Blessing 'in a Bottle 12 oz. of White Vinegar 12 oz. of Dawn Dish soap 1 tsp. of Laundry Detergent also known as "kitchen Magic" This stuff will get through anything, make your sink and shower shine like new, and save you when just about nothing else works. The laundry detergent is optional-I add it simply to cover some of the vinegar smell!

When you get out a new roll of toilet paper, place a few drops of your favorite essential oil in the cardboard tube of the toilet paper. This will release the scent of the oil each time the paper is used.

Seriously?! -- Vinegar works as a wood stain when you add a metal object in the mix and let it sit in a glass container for a week. A handful of pennies will produce a beautiful pale Caribbean blue stain. A wad of steel wool will give you a rich reddish hue. A combination of tea and a metal object in vinegar will produce a black stain. Log this away for later.

Genius! Use painters tape to mark the holes of the items that require two nails to hang, then place the tape on the wall and drill your holes.

Add orange peels (or any citrus peel) to a quart of white vinegar in a closed container and let it set for two weeks. Combine citrus/vinegar solution half/half with water and use for cleaning. Works on floors, tile, fixtures, etc. Smells good and is tough on scum!

How To Clean a Washing Machine Naturally

A simple, natural way to clean your top-loading washing machine using baking soda and white vinegar. I just did this today and it worked like a charm! Ours was pretty grungy, so I also used a little bit of dish soap on a non-scratch sponge to clean around the water line and the agitator. It's sparkling and smells great now.
