Tips Tuesday! Clean up on the cheap

I am a day late with my day-to-day blog, but am hoping to get back on track starting today. What better way to get back, but with a fun tips blog :) I have been following this one specific AllYou magazine (Oct 22, 2010) lately.

Clean up on the cheap: Get the job done--on a budget!

Baking Soda: For $1 (16 oz), you can...

Deodorize carpets. Sprinkle with baking soda, leave overnight, then vacuum in the morning.

Get rid of grime. Put a little baking soda on a sponge to wipe down your bathroom sink and tub.

Freshen laundry. Add 1/4 cup to the rinse cycle.

White Vinegar: For $1 (16 oz), you can...

Prevent mildew. Wipe your fridge with a 50-50 water-vinegar solution.

Brighten whites. Add 1/2 cup to the rinse cycle.

Make them sparkle. Clean windows with a 50-50 water-vinegar solution.

Lemon: For $1 (2 lemons), you can...

Purify your microwave. Warm a heat-resistant bowl with water and a few slices of lemon for 30 seconds.

Remove stains. Apply juice to white and colorfast garments, then let dry in the sun.
