best window cleaning solution ever - no chemicals and no streaks! half a bucket of water, one bottle of white vinegar, half a bottle of rubbing alcohol. or if you want to bottle it to spray it - 2 c. water, 1/2 c. vinegar, 1/4 c. alcohol
Granite (or any counter-top) shine/cleaner ~ Take a spray bottle, fill it about 1/8th full with rubbing alcohol, add a drop of Dawn dish washing soap, a few drops of scented oil (optional, but makes it smell so good), fill the rest of the way with water, shake together, and you’re good to go! It makes your granite (or any counter-top) shine and feel so smooth at a fraction of the price by lucinda
Another Pinner: Cleaning solution for mattresses. I finally tried it today. @ 1st, I didn't think it worked because I am impatient. But about an hour later, I went back in the room & the mattress looked brand spanking new! I will do this every time one of the kids has an accident or a spill. It even made an improvement on my dining room chairs. Me: You had me at mattresses...
Dishwasher soap: Mix together equal parts baking soda, borax (available in the laundry aisle). Use 1-2 Tbs. per load. Each load will cost pennies. Also, use vinegar in the jetdry well instead of the expensive stuff.
13 things your housekeeper won't tell you & their cleaning tricks!!!!!! The best way to dust blinds: Close them, then wipe up and down with an old dryer sheet. The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser is your friend. It will cut your cleaning time in half for bathtubs, sinks, countertops, and dirty walls. To clean glass and mirrors, use coffee filters, not paper towels. Etc.
The Borax, baking soda, and peroxide I use mostly in the bathrooms. The Borax cleans my toilet bowl and soap scum in the tub. It’s great at getting rid of the ring around the tub, too! Peroxide gets rid of mold and mildew that appears in the grout, and baking soda is a back-up scrubbing agent. I do all the cleaning with old ratty washcloths I toss in the washer with my load of towels.
