15 Ideas for Cleaning Your Home

Vinegar: After cleaning your coffee pot,you're cleaning the drain also when you pour it down the sink. I also removed burn stains off fabric from the iron. Takes patience,but can be done.

Great for all the pool towels this summer! Over time, towels build up detergent and fabric softener, leaving them unable to absorb as much water and smelling funky.
