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! by Elisa Ayala
Okay, this stuff is AMAZING! DIY shower cleaner -- vinegar and dish detergent. Don't worry about the brand or color. We used clear store brand detergent and it was GREAT! NO SCRUBBING required. As long as you can tolerate the smell :)
UPDATE: this took way more than 15 min and a lot of elbow grease, but it did work, even on some tough baked-on messes. Oven cleaner: 5 T baking soda, 4 T vinegar, 3 drops of Dawn and mix into a paste. Coat the oven, let sit for 15 min and scrub clean.
We love white distilled vinegar. We don't love the way it smells. But we love it. It's pretty cheap, it's non-toxic, environmentally-friendly, and you can use it to do (literally) like a thousand things in your home.
Unclogging Drains without harsh chemicals! Drop a couple of alka seltzer tablets into a slow drain and follow with a vinegar chaser. After a few minutes, rinse with hot water. Your drain will be as good as new.
