How to wash pillows at home. GOOD TO KNOW!

Wash bed pillows twice a year.
How to wash pillows at home. In the morning, fill your washing machine with enough cold water for a large load. Place your pillows into your washing machine. If you have a top loader, make sure that the load is balanced (usually four throw pillows or two bed pillows). I put in two tablespoons of my favorite detergent (at the moment, it’s Gain, so nothing too fancy). Then I set the machine to a long wash on heavy duty. When the wash is done, place your pillows outside on some sort of surface that allows air to flow around the entire pillow (like a screen or lawn chair). I placed mine in direct sunlight. Afterall, nothing cleans like sunshine. When the day starts to wane and the sun and or warmth is gone, I place my pillows in the dryer on low heat and let them tumble with a CLEAN tennis ball. This keeps the feathers from clumping up too much as it bounces around the dryer drum. Once your pillows are dry, pull them out and fluff them up a little. Mine are usually pretty fluffy already. And voila! You have clean pillows for a good night’s rest.

Fill your bathroom with an everlasting, fresh aroma! Simply place a few drops of essential oil (I use Lemongrass scent) onto the cardboard tube of your toilet paper roll. I guess I don't spin my toilet paper tube with the proper amount of vigor, this didn't work at all. Sad.
Bathroom idea-- Great for the guest bathrooms. Freshen the air with this handy trick. When you get out a new roll of toilet paper, place a few drops of your favorite essential oil in the cardboard tube of the toilet paper. This will release the scent of the oil each time the paper is used....
Place a few drops of essential oil (one pinner suggested lemongrass scent) onto the cardboard tube of your toilet paper roll to make your bathroom smell good. Not sure how well it works but it sounds like a good idea.

This long-forgotten gem of a cleaning agent may be used with a little water or vinegar to lift even the most stubborn stains. Unattractive grout. Mold and mildew, Burner pans and casserole dishes, Cream of Tartar — The Cleaner You’ll Swoon Over October 27, 2008|Comments (54) In my little world, items like cream of tartar (potassium bitartrate) are not simply a super way to stabilize egg whites but also scandalously inexpensive cleaning secrets. This long-forgotten gem of a cleaning agent may be used with a little water or vinegar to lift even the most stubborn stains. Unattractive grout driving you batty? Mold and mildew stains got you reaching for the Prozac? Burner pans and casserole dishes giving you fits? Cream of Tartar is your new best friend. Cream of tartar is one of nature’s best bleaching agents. Cream of tartar, a.k.a “crusted wine,” is mixed with baking soda to create baking powder (bet you didn’t know that.. okay, some of you probably did, you smartypants). While it is an acid, it’s not harmful. It’s an acidic salt which comes from grapes. Why is commercial laundry detergent never grape scented? I want to know. Someone please contact Tide. We need answers! Actually, we don’t need answers. We can scent our own homemade detergent (I haven’t bothered but that’s not to say that you couldn’t… after all, you knew about that baking powder thing — you smartypants). Anyway, back to the important stuff: Use a few tablespoons of cream of tartar with hot water or hydrogen peroxide and clean any aluminum pans which have discoloration or any rusty drains, pans, or stains. Do you have copper kettles? Mix some cream of tarter with lemon juice and rub the copper with it. Rinse and be amazed! How about a porcelain sink, tub, commode? Rub the porcelain surfaces with cream of tartar and watch the stains disappear. Fabric stains? No prob. Mix a few teaspoons of cream of tartar with some glycerin and use like spray-and-wash. The results? Well, I’m here to tell you that this stuff cured the ring around Joshua’s shirt collars. Just need a great nonabrasive cleaner? Mix 2 teaspoons of vinegar and 2 teaspoon of cream of tartar in a small dish (use 3 or 4 teaspoons of vinegar and 3 or 4 teaspoons of cream of tartar if you have more items to clean). Apply with your cleaning rag or scrub brush and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Scrub. Wash with hot soapy water. Please pass these recipes to your Cream of tartar is also great for keeping your peeled potatoes from turning brown. Just add about a teaspoon of cream of tartar to your peeled potatoes…and you can soak them for a long period of time without them turning brown. the maid using cream of tarter to use on hard water spots Cream of TT works miracles on the bathtub. That’s because it is a dry acid and the bathtub ring is a base. This is kindergarten chemistry! – vinegar on a sponge then use the cream of TT as a scouring powder. The bathtub ring disappears like magic. calcium deposit stuff that builds up? Just put a teaspoon of Cream of Tarter in the teapot and fill about a third or so with water and boil. Then pour the water out and wipe the white stuff right off! if you want to clean aluminum you should try Cameo cleansing powder. it’s usually found next to the comet. It works great, and is a lot cheaper than using cream of tartar. I have found bulk sized bags of cream of tartar on amazon. If you live anywhere near a winery you can check with them and see if you can get it from them. (Cream of tartar is a by-product of wine making. I imagine they sell it to spice companies?) Here is a link: http://www.amazon.com/Frontier-Cream-Tartar-Powder-package/dp/B0001M0YK8/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8=1333028531=8-2 Its an example of a one pound bag for about $15. I don’t know how much the shipping would be but I would hope that the price would be better than the little tiny bottles in the store. Regarding where to buy larger jars of cream of tartar. I was at Aldi (discount grocery store owned by trader joes) around the holidays and found a large jar of cream of tartar for under $2 My grandmother swore by cream of tartar as a blood purifier. As kids my mom always gave us some mixed in a glass of water. Bakewell Cream is the same as cream of tartar and can be found in most grocery stores. It’s in a yellow can and is 8oz. I used cream of tartar with white vinigar and 1/2 cup warm water to clean the stains off of the seats of a pair of antique chairs that I found at a thrift store. They were done in powder blue velvet. Every stain came out. Back in the 50′s, my mom used Cream of Tarter a lot for laundry, etc..
The simplest ideas are always the best. How could I never have thought of this one?
