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.
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.
I detest any type of bug or fly in my house, so when I saw a newscast regarding fruit flies, my interest perked up quite quickly! (I am the one that runs after everyone to close the screen doors!!) They lay their eggs in and amoungst ripe fruit....so one way to deter this is by washing your fruit right away and storing in the fridge. Obviously....your chances of getting hords of fruit flies are greater if you have fruit trees on your property!! Sorry for you...but this application will definately help relieve you of this burden!!
My cuttingboards are all wood and I don't like to clean them with just warm water and soap. After I wash them I normally pour some hydrogen peroxide on them which works great. But one day I did not have any so I decided I would need to use an alternative. Instead I poured some lemon juice on it because lemon juice is a natural bleach. It worked great! I thought this may be helpful to some other people that would like to use something to clean the wooden cuttingboard that is natural instead of using bleach. Cook time is the amount of time it takes to complete the cleaning process. I went ahead and listed both cleaning products but don't use both at the same time. Use lemon juice OR use hydrogen peroxide. The formatting said that the recipe had to have more than 1 ingredient.
We have a fireplace with glass doors. "How beautiful!" we thought when we bought the place. It didn't take long to figure out it was a curse rather than a blessing. They fog over with only one fire and within a week can be black and opaque. We tried many different techniques and even resorted to scraping it with a razor blade at times.
I think I read this tip in a book full of similar tips. I didn't really believe that it would work but was pleasantly surprised! Cleanup has gone from a several hour affair to about 15 minutes.
You can disregard the amounts... the recipe was rejected for lack of quantities originally so I had to add them to get it accepted.
This is an organic solution that will take care of all the pesky creatures in your garden; insect or four legged. I found it on an organic gardening site recently, and it worked so well, I had to share it! Evaluate the pest situation after applying and adjust the water dilution as necessary. It will be pungent when first applied, but the smell will dissipate. Spray every few days until pests are gone. Respray after rain, and about every week to ten days thereafter.
I like to use home made remedies where possible. They are safe for the environment and a less expensive. This one works a treat. I could not list soapy water....lol............. although you do need it for this recipe.
This recipe should not be ingested and KEEP AWAY FROM CHILDREN.
I found this recipe from the A.B.C.
