Simply ways to make your microwave smells disappear.
Always make sure after cooking something to wipe clean with a damp cloth. Use a mild detergent when needed. When smells have taken over use the following.
Save money with this lovely smelling spray that is good for your home, your health, and the environment! Use whatever essential oils you like. Lavender is a natural disinfectant and very relaxing. Tea tree oil is a natural anti-fungal, great for mildewy bathroom surfaces.
This will make your house smell wonderful without breaking the bank or exposing your family and pets to harmful chemicals. And you probably have the ingredients on-hand. Use whatever essential oils you like. From Vegetarian Times magazine. Cooking time is sitting time.
This stuff is wonderful! Very economical and perfect for people with sensitive skin/allergies or those who wish to "go green," and it really works! Soap flakes are often available at craft stores. Use whatever essential oils you like. Lavender, orange, lemon, and grapefruit are really nice for laundry. Recipe from one of my husband's classmates.
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!
Place these homemade rocks in a bowl or dish to scent your room. This is a nice alternative to potpourri! Recipe from www.make-stuff.com I dusted my scented rocks with some cocoa powder and they look so tempting now, you would believe that they are some edible coloured cookies. This will be nice fun to have around on April Fools Day!
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.
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. The solution can be very drying to your hands so consider using rubber gloves or even tweezers to handle the jewelry. This recipe is from wire-sculpture.com.
I searched for a long time and couldn't find a good liquid dishwasher detergent recipe, so I played around and invented this one. It was inspired by the many powdered detergent recipes. It rinses well, but if you have hard water, you might want to use some vinegar in the rinse cycle.
Easy and economical. Ideal for rinsing produce when you cannot get or afford to buy Organic. Removes a lot of residue like chemicals, pesticides and other matter quickly and easily. I saw this on Oprah and had to share! NOTE: Make sure to mix this in a DEEP pitcher. The baking soda and vinegar will react and foam everywhere if you do not. (just ask any elementary school kid who has ever made a volcano for science class)
