Cleaning Schedule

Make your own 50-hour candles for less than 2 dollars a piece. Great for lighting an outdoor gathering

Place a dishwasher-safe cup filled with plain white vinegar on the top rack of the dishwasher. Using the hottest water available, run the dishwasher through a cycle. The vinegar will help to wash away the loose, greasy grime, sanitizes, and helps remove the musty odor. Next, sprinkle a cupful of baking soda around the bottom of the tub and run it through a short cycle. The baking soda will help freshen and removing stains.

How to deodorize your drain: Mix 1/2 cup baking soda with 1/4 cup table salt and pour down drain. Pour 1 cup of heated vinegar down the drain (it will foam and bubble). Let it sit for 15 minutes. Run hot tap water for 30-60 seconds.

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.

How to clean a mattress-I just did this and it seriously worked! Good bye to urine, juice, coffee and other weird stains on my mattress

I SERIOUSLY need to do this! Wash towels in 1 Cup of vinegar on hot, then again with 1/2 cup of baking soda on hot. I just pulled them out of the washer to move to the dryer and my towels smell 10 times better.

Yardage charts for just about everything.

Refreshing towels...Over time, towels build up detergent and fabric softener, leaving them unable to absorb as much water and smelly. Recharge them by washing them once with hot water and 1cup vinegar, then a 2nd 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!
