Cleaning with Cream of Tartar

Cleaning with cream of tartar. There are wonderful household cleaners you can make without using lots of chemicals. There are some great sounding ideas, but I havent tried them, so I cannot say if they all work in equal measure. Also, I think you might want to buy in bulk if you were going to use cream of tartar this way.

DIY Fabric Whitener

DIY Fabric Whitener It is SO simple and can’t believe that it works. You take one cup of cream of tartar (used in baking for some frosting to make them white, so that’s why this makes so much sense) and three cups of water. Mix together in a clean bucket and let your-at one time white shirts- soak and enjoy a fresh white shirt after washing in a regular cycle.

Use Vinegar and Baking Soda to Recharge Your Towels

Pinner says: Over time, towels build up detergent and fabric softener, leaving them unable to absorb as much water and smelling funky. Recharge them by washing them once with hot water and one cup vinegar, then a second 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!

clean your oven with 5 T baking soda 5 drops dawn dish soap and 4 T vinegar, mix into a paste and spread all over let it sit for 15 minutes then wipe off.
