    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.

    Recipe #187531

    There are so many uses for all the parts of lemon. Here are a few. If you have others, send them to me and I will add them.

    Recipe #455561

    My kids and former husband were bad about leaving their glass full of melting ice on top of their desks or next to their chair. I've found this works pretty well on most water stains on wooden furniture. This works best if you can get to the water mark earlier, rather than on one that has been there for years. This works best if you mix a little cigar or cigarette ashes in with your mayonnaise. Food.com doesn't recognize those items, so I couldn't list them in the ingredients. If you don't have cigar or cigarette ashes, the mayo alone works well, just not as well.

    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.

    An ecologically sound alternative to Ajax or Comet. I found this recipe in a booklet of eco-friendly housekeeping and gardening put out by my municipality.

    Recipe #71296

    This is by far the best all purpose cleaner I've found. It is fabulous on windows and mirrors, degreases wonderfully, and cuts gunk on sinks etc. and shines, shines, shines. I use it for everything but wood.

    This cleaner is great. I use it for everything. Laundry (1/2 cup per load) Dishes (a squirt in the sink) Dishwashers (in the prewash only)Bathroom. It is a combination of many recipies for laundry soap I have discovered on the web, but it will clean everything! One batch will last a long time and will cost way less than $1. I just discovered a new use for this awesome stuff... It cleans grout! Just pour some on your floor (My kitchen grout was nasty!) and scrub the grout lightly. Rinse it and enjoy clean grout with no nasty chemicals!!!

    Recipe #82941

    A stain of indeterminate color and unknown origin appeared on my kitchen sink the other day, and I found this amazing remedy in Clean House Clean Planet (by Karen Logan).

    Recipe #92890

    This is straight out of the laundry room of DH's grandmother; it works too! I've also entered this under the "kid friendly" category because there was no "parent friendly" category to choose from! This spray concoction has been a godsend when getting stains out of my toddlers clothes.

    My daughter spilled a cup of grape juice on her hot pink shirt. This did the trick, and the shirt's still pink! I got this from my sister in law and am posting it here so I don't lose it. The "dish detergent" is actually Cascade automatic dishwasher detergent-it wouldn't let me enter that as an ingredient.

    Recipe #194639

    I'd heard that Grapefruit Seed Extract was very effective for cleaning produce (http://www.pureliquidgold.com/), so I set out to find a Veggie Wash recipe to refill my expensive store-bought bottle. I found this one at www.veganforum.com.

    Recipe #163807

    Simple, green, toilet solution.

    Recipe #452972

    Since I am chemically sensitive, I find these useful. One shelf of simple and relatively safe ingredients can be used to perform most home cleaning chores. All that's needed is a knowledge of how they work and how different ingredients should be combined to get the cleaning power needed for a specific job.

    Recipe #452728

    From 1993 Mountain View's Best Cooks compiled by Friends of Pack Memorial Library. Submission by Mirla Omey, 1967. I have used cayenne before on my plants and it works well.

    I found this recipe online and am giving it a try. I am posting it here so I can find it when I run out of this first batch.

    Thank you "The View"

    Recipe #26105

    I had to share this one. It's amazing. Just two ingredients and a spray bottle! I found this on beingfrugal.net. and it's just too good not to post. You spray it on and leave it, like those expensive (and toxic) cleaners made for bathtubs. I have used it on everything that I would use a spray cleaner on and it is great. It's cheap, natural, and it works great!

    Recipe #319938

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