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.

Dry Up Grease Stains with Plain White Chalk

Need to remember this cleaning tip --- Plain White Chalk will remove grease stains from clothes. Simply rub the stain with the chalk, then toss the clothing into the wash as normal.

This is the best paint for distressing! Mix POP & water (I use 1/3 cup water) in a plastic container & shake til smooth. Add paint, shake again & paint your project! No need to sand before painting. Once the paint has dried, wipe edges with a damp rag, then wax or seal with Polycrylic.

SET the baking soda on the bottom of the oven. Spray the baking soda with water or vinegar and dawn. REST! Overnight or about 6-8 hours. WIPE the bottom of the oven, and see instant results!
