Clean Pot / Pan Bottoms - Have stains on your pots and pans bottom? Sprinkle on some baking soda, then peroxide. Let the soda absorb the peroxide for maybe 10 min. Then spray on white vinegar. Let it soak for about an hour. Then scrub with a non-abrasive scouring pad. I really didn't have to spend much time or elbow grease scrubbing!

My grandma taught me this many years ago. Refreshing towels I use this trick all the time since I noticed my towels smelling funky. It works! - 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!

Soak orange peels in vinegar for two weeks in a sealed mason jar then pour the vinegar into a spray bottle. Use as a non-toxic and yummy smelling green cleaner. I love using vinegar to clean with but have always wondered how to make it smell better - cant wait to do this!

ONLY use this and it leaves floor spotless. (Heavy duty floor cleaner recipe: cup white vinegar 1 tablespoon liquid dish soap cup baking soda 2 gallons tap water, very warm.) It leaves everything smelling amazing.

Pour 1/2 cup vinegar in the drain and immediately cover the drain (I use a plug or set a plate over it you want to keep everything inside the drain) Leave everything to sit and work for about 30 mins (dont use the sink during this time). After 30 mins, remove the cover and let hot water run thru the pipes for about 2-3 mins. for really tough clogs you may need to repeat denawilliams21
