How to get your dirty whites clean again... HOT HOT HOT water, 1 cap of laundry detergent, 1 cup powdered dish washer detergent, 1 cup bleach, 1/2 cup borax. you have to rewash it once to put softener in but it's the whitest you'll ever see your whites. If you omit the bleach it works great to get stains out of colors too (baby spit up is no longer a stain on OLD clothes)
How to clean your cookie sheets--Kitchen "Miracle" Cleaner! You put about 1/4 cup of baking soda in a small glass bowl and squirt in hydrogen peroxide until it makes a nice paste. Then you rub it on the offending dirt/stain/grease...whatever! You can usually just use your fingers...but you can also use a small sponge as well.
Remove pee stains...You need a measuring cup, tablespoon, funnel, and spray bottle. 8 ounces hydrogen peroxide, 3 T. of baking soda,1 drop of liquid dish soap. Mix all ingredients into the spray bottle and use within 20 minutes. The mixture only works if you use it immediately. You should see the stain lift and disappear within 5-10 minutes. Once the mattress dries, if a baking soda film remains, then simply wipe or vacuum it off. Should work for pet stains as well. :)
Stones glued to felt = hot pad. That Martha....genius! This would also work fabulous for those 'spa' bath mats...just glue the stones (which can be found everywhere from craft stores, dollar stores and big box) anyhow, glue to inexpensive rubber doormats, the kind with swirls so it can drain. Same look SO much cheaper.
