    This cleanser is so simple. You probably already have the main ingredient in you cupboard. It leaves your sink and your pots sparkling clean without the use of harsh chemicals or perfumes.

    Recipe #311883

    I devised this little concoction several years ago because we love curries and things with coconut milk in them, but OH, the sat-fat in that lovely canned stuff. A no-no for us unless it's a very special occasion. It's worked for me in a lot of curries and even rice dishes, and we can enjoy these foods without the worry. This recipe is a starting point as a substitute for 1 cup canned coconut milk for adding to recipes. (1- 13.5 oz can is just shy of 2 cups, I make the difference up with fat free half&half.) You can adjust the cornstarch and sugar to your taste for thickness and sweetness. Double or change for however much liquid you need in your recipe.

    Recipe #187372

    Don't throw away your foam soap dispenser or spend extra on the refills when you run out. It's easy to make your own! This also works with shampoo.

    Recipe #103893

    This will help take care of those fruit flies that gather around the stuff you have to take out to the compost pile or those bananas you haven't gotten around to baking with yet. The photo I posted (the one with the cherry & grape tomatoes) shows several fruit flies on the paper already (and a couple are in the vinegar, though you can't see them)--not even three minutes after making the trap! Some kinds of cider vinegar work better than others--typically, I find the darker the vinegar, the better it works. I know some people have said they prefer to use plastic wrap over the top, but I find that the paper cone (though it takes some fiddling to get it to fit just right) works best.

    This is very inexpensive compared to all the whiteners on the market. And is not the same as those gels on the market this has only 2 ingredients which you know and are at hand in every home. It gets your teeth & gums nice and clean. I do it once every couple weeks. A great way to remove wine, tea, coffee, & tarter stains. If you don't like the taste add a a drop of mint extract. It's is SAFE for your use and has been used for a long time. You can check this article at http://www.dentalgentlecare.com/whitening_safety.htm Take Note A recent report suggested a "possible" link between tooth whitening and oral cancer. It was based on two (only 2)case reports of patients who contracted oral cancer with none of the known risk factors. There are no new studies cited. We call this to your attention because the report got substantial media play. Interestingly, the report itself states that carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide-chemicals generated in the whitening process-AREN'T CARCINOGENS IN THE MOUTH. June 2002 2003 2004 http://educate-yourself.org/cancer/benefitsofhydrogenperozide17jul03.shtml This is no more cancerous then the fat, grilled food and processed foods people put in their bodies filled with ingredients your can't read. If you go into your cabinet and read the hydrogen peroxide bottle it states to use as an gargle and mouth rinse.

    I don't always have cake flour on hand, and I'm betting many others don't either. I have discovered that this substitute works very, very well. Easy too, and it uses pantry staples!

    Recipe #87689

    Works wonderfully masha Allah. Adapted from recipe#82410. Works well on the glass of cabinets too!

    WOW! No streaks, no smears, no buffing. This will clean ceramic tile counter tops, windows and their vinyl casings, SS appliances, sealed wood AND it removes hairspray from mirrors. So far that's all I've tried it on, as I came up with this recipe just this morning. I've been a cleaning fool today, experimenting on everything. I love it...Let me know what you think.

    For those of you who hate poison-type drain cleaners, use white vinegar and baking soda. This will clean and unclog a drain. Also drops of white vinegar in your pet's water will keep away fleas and ticks!

    Recipe #16470

    Here's what Jerry Baker uses to clean and deodorize pet urine-damaged areas.

    Recipe #101342

    This is great for cast iron, but can be used for any cookware with rust. I suspect it would work on rust other than cookware.

    Recipe #460517

    My interest in serviette folding was born on a wet day at my Grandmother's house, I was a pre teen and helping her with the ironing and watched while she ironed serviettes into wonderful shapes and neatly stacked them for use. I asked her to show me how and she did. Once you know several folds and people see them, they often have at least one other that you haven't seen before, you gain knowledge of the new one and on it goes. Now that I have already posted all the napkin folds I know, I decided to look on the net for some new ones to learn. This one was called the Lotus and as far as I can see it's just a step further than Recipe #240998, but since it's listed as a napkin fold in it's own right and I have learned it as a new one and added it here.

    Recipe #242382

    The most inexpencive and easiest recipe of all. The simplest way to soften fabrics and control static. Makes towels more absorbent.

    This is great over a nice fresh green salad. It's easy to put together and the ingredients are ones that you would usually have on hand. We don't like a lot of dressing so this would serve 4 for us. If you like more, this may serve 2. Enjoy!

    Recipe #431813

    For those on a diet, this is great

    Recipe #179244

    I was tired of paying over a dollar for Campbell's soups when a friend gave me this recipe. It doesn't take much extra work, and it's so much healthier! It's been months since I bought a can of cream of mushroom, cream of chicken, cream of celery, cheddar cheese, or tomato soup... helping my budget and my health at the same time. :)
