I have seen a lot of cleaners that use baking soda but this is the first time that I have used baking powder...don't ask me how the science works but MAN does it work! I have used this on everything from counter-tops, windows, mirrors and cleaning my stovetop BUT my absolute favorite use for this magic concoction is a replacement solution for our Bissell steam vac carpet cleaner!
Mop hardwood floors with 1 gal. hot water. 1/2 cup vinegar, 2 Tablespoons baking soda, and a few drops of dish soap. Shiny floors, house smells grand. I also mopped my dingy linoleum tile floors in my kitchen this was better than any floor cleaner I have ever bought off the shelf!
Oh my word...this is amazing! I made the mistake of using mop n glo a couple years ago and it made dirt get into the linoleum and no matter how much scrubbing I did it didn't work, BUT this solution did. My floors look brand new. So excited!
wish I knew this years ago- Right after using the grill, unplug it and place a wet double-sheet of paper towel between the lid and the surface.

Growing Home: Refrigerator Cleaning Tips Fill sink with steaming hot water, vinegar, baking soda, and a bit of dish soap to scrub away the grime from smaller parts.

Brighten dingy floors. Combine half a cup of hydrogen peroxide with one gallon of hot water. Because it’s so mild, it’s safe for any floor type, and there’s no need to rinse. (I'd like to try this with our steam mop by spraying a mixture and mopping over.)
Lady said "I was in Ulta today and a sales lady dropped nail polish. They immediately began poring sugar on it. Did you know sugar makes nail polish clump up and you can sweep it right off the floor? I watched them. No scrubbing at all!"
