    Clean, Smelling Good, and Cheap!

    It is time to protest the outrageous prices of household cleaners and personal products. Another hint I was just given is to spray Listerine around your yard instead of the pricey yard guard sprays.

    A former hairsylist turned me on to this secret for a cleansing shampoo for color-treated hair. Commercial cleansing shampoos are made to throughly cleanse your hair (ie remove all product build-up), but they also strip color. This homemade version helps to prevent stripping of color, but also throughly cleanses your hair. It is also much cheaper and can be made with products already in your home. I love it and use it once per week!

    Recipe #122257

    I used the method to reduce the flea population in my den after it exploded. Didn't want to use that much Frontline or the bug bombs. I DID use Frontline but just 3 or 4 squirts. Less chemicals in my house, the better.

    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

    This is one of my most "precious" recipes that I am so proud to be sharing with my friends on Zaar and the rest of the world. This recipe was born on the 23rd of February at close to midnight(isn't that somethin'!). It just happened that my kitchen was sparkling clean, but I had several of these horrible grease marks all over my cooking unit which were not taking the name of going, no matter how much I scrubbed them using baking soda and vinegar(the combo generally works very well to cut through grease). I was slogging like crazy trying so very hard, when it just occured to me that I could try using washing soda to fight these grease marks. When I looked at the washing soda box, it didn't mention that washing soda works to fight grease. So, I looked up the borax box and that said it does work to fight grease. Well, then, I just took the box straight into my kitchen and called my dad to help me(cos my arm was so tired with the 30 minutes of scrubbing). When my dad got to the kitchen, he saw the box of borax and got an idea. He said, why not try using some vinegar, some borax powder and some Surgical spirit..and then trying to scrub! We did and guess what - It worked like a charm plus it hardly costs few pennies!!! Now, I have the best grease fighter right here!!! I hope it will do you as much good as it did me:) Please note: The number of servings really depends on how much grease you got to fight! The cooking time is how much time it took me to get rid of all the horrible grease.

    Recipe #88265

    I just switched to stainless steel cookware this year. I've had several instances where I get food bonded to the bottom of a pan. One day my Mother was visiting and I was complaining about it. She said, "cream of tartar". I said, "huh"? She said it just popped into her head that my Great Grandmother used to say to sprinkle cream of tartar in a hard to clean stainless steel pan put some water in it and boil it until the crud comes off. Guess what? It works everytime! *This is my favorite posting because it has helped so many people...and apparently it works on more than stainless steel. :)

    Recipe #251972

    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.

    Recipe #26191

    This easy cleaner helps keep wooden cutting boards freshened and sanitized. The lemon and essential oil sanitize the board while the abrasive action of the salt cleans it. If you use your cutting board for raw meat, get into the habit of doing this after each use. Never use the same cutting board for fresh fruits and vegetables as is used for raw meat.

    I couldn't believe how dirty my watch and silver jewelry were when I tried this. Yuck! This saves money and is safe for you and the environment.
