Tip: Once a week, toss in a few frozen cubes of white vinegar and turn on your disposal. The vinegar will get in all the moving nooks and crannies that are otherwise hard to get to and the ice will sharpen your blades.
No-Scrub cleaner. 1/2 c. white vinegar 1/2 c. Original Blue Dawn Dish Soap 4 T. Baking Soda Empty spray bottle (or skip this and use a glass measuring cup). Heat vinegar to warm, add baking soda, then add Dawn. Spread on paste using washcloth and leave for 2hrs. Spray off.
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!
