    One way to get shiny results without the chemicals.

    Recipe #70980

    24 Reviews |  By Sully7

    This is great for sinks, showers and even hands. My husband fixed our roof and his hands were full of tar. He used this and the tar "melted off!" He said it was better than the hand cleaner mechanics use to get the oil off their hands! It shines my stainless steel sink, it doesn't scratch my stovetop and it is awesome on the tub. Best of all it is easy and cheap! I found it on a make your own cleaner website and it works!

    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

    This method is nothing short of a miracle to clean kitchen hood filters. Non-toxic and cheap, cheap, cheap! The only problem you should have is finding the right vessel. I used a roasting pan, but maybe using a disposable aluminum pan would work. Add the soda at the beginning to the cool water so it doesn't fizz and overflow. As embarrassing as it may be for me to show how bad mine were, note the differences. The foremost filter in the picture is one that's been cleaned by this method.

    Recipe #474982

    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 is from Jerry Baker, America's Master Gardener and it's in his book-Backyard Problem Solver.

    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

    Environmentally friendly, no harsh chemicals! We tried the expensive cleaners and found our floors still looked streaky and dull. This homemade cleaner makes them look bright, streak free and beautiful!

    Recipe #138101

    We frequently boil this during the cold and flu season. We use it more as a prevention than a cure, but it can help to keep germs down and lessens the possibility of making other family members sick. It also smells great so it isn't a problem to keep it brewing. I put zero cook time because it isn't a set time and is up to the person how long they want it to brew.

    Recipe #75747

    This is easy to make--just make sure you use 1 tablespoon of cornstarch per 1 cup of sugar.

    Recipe #88812

    This is from a newspaper clipping from the Kansas City Star.

    Recipe #180762

    This shower cleaner came from an Everyday Cheapskate e-mail, and it is truly magic, as the title states. I just tried it and it got the soap scum off my glass shower door with hardly any scrubbing. It was amazing, as I have tried to clean that door with various products. It is so easy, too. Try it and you will be sold. Be careful because a little bit goes a long way. You need a 24-oz. squirt bottle for this.

    Recipe #434275

    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.

    Recipe #61051

    Is your shower head clogged? Is it slow running or at a lower pressure than normal? Try this simple and easy fix for most shower head problems! Be careful not to get the vinegar in your eyes...it stings!

    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.

    Recipe #69525

    This weed killer is non-discriminatory....it kills what it is sprayed on, so be careful where you spray it. The good thing about this is that it is easy to make and very economical. Make sure you label it and store it out of the hands of inquisitive children. If you spray this multiple times in the same spot, nothing will grow there for a very long time....perfect for cracks in your driveway and in sidewalks.

    Recipe #434896

    This is an inexpensive and "green" way to clean your smooth top electric stove. Except for the lemon essential oil, it uses things you normally have around the house. Posted by Katy S on Everyday Cheapskate.
