Use Vinegar and Baking Soda to Recharge Your Towels

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!

How to clean mold in the shower. I tried this with four cotton balls on the moldiest parts of the tub, not really expecting it to work, but it DID! It was so pristine white I was totally amazed! This mold has been here since we moved in to our apartment. I tried spraying it with bleach cleaning solution and letting it sit, then scrubbing with a toothbrush, and that helped but it was still there, so I had given it up as a lost cause. But this worked! HOORAY!! Can you tell I'm excited?…
