Use Vinegar and Baking Soda to Recharge Your Towels

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!

Tip: Once a week, toss in a few frozen cubes of white vinegar and turn on your disposal. The vinegar will get in all the moving nooks and crannies that are otherwise hard to get to and the ice will sharpen your blades.

clean your oven with 5 T baking soda 5 drops dawn dish soap and 4 T vinegar, mix into a paste and spread all over let it sit for 15 minutes then wipe off.
