    No way!!! Can this possibly work in Canada? Do I dare try it? For icy steps and sidewalks in freezing temperatures, mix 1 teaspoon of Dawn dishwashing liquid, 1 tablespoon of rubbing alcohol, and 1/2 gallon hot/warm water and pour over walkways. They won’t refreeze. No more salt eating at the concrete in your sidewalks

The best homemade floor cleaner....Then I found this recipe which mixes equal parts water, vinegar, and isopropyl alcohol, with a few drops of dish soap. Ahh, Eureka!

I proceeded to clean the

The only SPOT REMOVER you may ever need ~ Mix one part Dawn dish washing liquid with two parts hydrogen peroxide; pour or spray it directly on the stain, and watch it disappear like MAGIC.

  • Jennifer Daly

    It means if you use one cup of Dawn then you use two cups of hydrogen peroxide. You can use any amount just double the hydrogen peroxide.

    Thank you Jennifer :)

  • Jennifer Daly

    You're welcome! And it really works! Make sure you really rinse out the area with cold water after though.

  • Marlana Moore

    Okay thanks, I didn't read anything about that. Is that so the stain doesn't come back?

  • Jennifer Daly

    Yep. The first time we used this formula we didn't rinse it enough and the stained area actually grew a little. So we went back and did it again but spent a lot more time rinsing and it worked fine.

ONLY use this and it leaves floor spotless. (Heavy duty floor cleaner recipe: ¼ cup white vinegar 1 tablespoon liquid dish soap ¼ cup baking soda 2 gallons tap water, very warm.) It leaves everything smelling amazing.

Remembering this when i paint my new house -- To get rid of paint fumes... add a tablespoon of vanilla extract to a gallon of paint, mix well. It does not effect paint color! And makes the whole room smell like vanilla when you're done! HMMMMMM?????

How to restore scratched and worn wood. Another pinner says: for watermarks - mix a thick paste of olive oil and salt and rub onto the wood - leave it for about 30 minutes. The salt draws out the moisture and the oil feeds the wood. Used this many, many times!

    Water and veneer do not mix. Plus, if most of the original finish is worn water will "raise" the grain. Many older pieces such as oak have a shellac finish. Water will turn shellac white. I would think twice before using water on an old piece.
