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.
