How to Clean Pillows. Good to know! I do this every other month, but I also wash my pillows on the hottest setting with a cup of bleach. Always does the trick. This way, you don't have to do the "smell" check! I also like my pillows to smell fresh, so I add fabric softener to the washer and dry with a sheet. Also helps get rid of static in your hair on those dry winter months!
The Best Way to Clean Your Bathtub.. 20 Mule Team Borax. It works! I've tried every noxious, nasty, chemical laden cleaner on the market and nothing budged those stains but this actually worked! It is easy on the lungs and the eyes, cheap, and works without even working up a major sweat. I am so excited at the prospect of actually having a clean looking tub again.
How to Clean Silver the Easy Way! - Place aluminum foil in the bottom of your sink and run HOT water. Add 2 Tbsp of salt in the water and your silver. Leave for 2-3 minutes and the tarnish will be gone. Repeat for badly tarnish or loosly wrap aluminum foil around the silver before putting in the hot water. Larger pieces will require more salt.
