"From the Chef's hat" column of the Thursday magazine dated April 10-16'03. DO NOT DRINK!

Recipe #64426

5 Reviews |  By txgammi

Highly effective! This recipe was shared with me yesterday by my neighbor, Kathrine. I had to ask her what she put on the weeds at the corner of her lot that adjoins my garden because although her weeds had turned brown and died, so did a large patch of my green grass. That's when she shared this recipe, and let me tell you....IT WORKS! Recipe can be doubled or tripled easily.

An inexpensive alternative to the store-bought variety. To check for color-fastness: test a bit of cleaner on an inconspicuous area of the carpet before using the first time.

Recipe #101568

From the Thursday magazine, this works like a charm and is so easy to put together! Enjoy!

Recipe #82410

I wrote this recipe myself. I make most of our household cleaners. There is no soap in this. It's great on soap scum. My shower sparkles.

Recipe #349641

From the Thursday magazine; this was submitted by Jyoti S. Mehta.

Recipe #59326

I had tried most everything to clean the porcelain enamel grates on my cooktop with little success. Then I read the use & care guide that came with the cooktop. How simple is this! NOTE: I used a plastic trash bag with a tie top. When entering this "recipe", a plastic bag wasn't recognized but a ziploc was. Ignore that "ingredient" ;-)

Is your laundry looking dingy? Are you seeing spots before your eyes? To keep your washer spotlessly clean, it is important to remember to give it a once over every six months, or every three months if you have hard water. Is your Dish Washer dingy? See my recipe for Recipe #87538 ! From Talking Dirty Laundry with the Queen or Clean, by Linda Cobb

Recipe #63666

This stuff works! Will even de-scent a roadkilled skunk. Has to be made fresh every time.

Recipe #135821

Organic food can get a little pricey if you are on a budget, but you can still eliminate a good bit of the harmful stuff from your fruits and veggies with this soak. It is from the book 'Spa - Glow Guide - Simple Steps For Health and Well Being by Andrea Mc Cloud. Enjoy!

Thanks to Bev's recipe for cleaning my clothes washer I thought maybe someone would also enjoy a shiny clean dish washer!

Recipe #66665

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.

Cleaning your microwave couldn't get any easier than this!

Recipe #82412

So, you've bought one of those nifty little squirt bottles of cleaner for your glasses, and now it's empty. Should you spend another small fortune on name brand refills or another bottle full? Absolutely no need. For less than $3 you can have a lifetime supply of refill at your fingertips.

Recipe #173939

As much as I love the aroma of a fireplace, bonfire, or our woodburning stove, I also love to throw in a few herbal fire bundles once in a while. Make Valentine's Day more romantic, spice it up in the fall, or try different herbs for a Christmasy feel. It's relaxing, and a nice way to fragrance your home the natural way. And in Native American tradition, sage bundles are very cleansing to your surroundings.

Recipe #83035

I will never be a domestic goddess, I like cooking but I hate ironing!! Spraying this on the pieces to be ironed makes that dreadful task a bit more bearable! The classic fragrance for this is lavender, but I make up different fragrances all the time, but do choose a clear and not dark colored oil. At the moment I have a mix of lemon and rosemary in the bottle. So far it has never stained any clothes, just make sure you shake the bottle before use. Years ago I received it as a present, now I give this away as a present and it is always appreciated! If it goes cloudy it is not abnormal, some essential oils do that.
