For every time burns our pots. Clean burnt pots - vinegar, baking soda, and water :) I had been soaking a pan for 2 days, scrubbing like crazy several times. Brought the water n vinegar to a boil, added baking soda. Waited a couple mins, dumped it all out n everything just wiped off! I had a brand new looking pan! I will be remembering this one lol
Get Rid of Odours Know that "new" smell of dye or chemicals that comes with just-bought sheets or shirts? Have a teenager who thinks nothing of leaving sweaty clothes in a locker or gym bag for weeks on end? Worse, ever have a run-in with a skunk? Grab two old deodorizer standbys. First, add ½ cup baking soda to 1 gallon (3.78 litres) water and presoak any smelly washable items for about 2 hours. Then, as you machine-wash them, add ½ cup white vinegar to the rinse cycle.
Mix together 1 cup of baking soda, 1 cup of salt and 1/4 cup of cream of tartar. Measure about a quarter cup of the mixed powder and pour into your clogged drain. Pour two cups of boiling water into the drain, and let stand for about an hour, then run fresh water from the tap.
To make your own, you just need water, washing soda (note that you can also use baking soda) and hydrogen peroxide. Just mix equal parts of peroxide and washing soda with a double part of water. For instance, mix 1 cup of water with ½ cups each of washing soda and peroxide.
