    Recipe #320196

    I'm so picky about clean, streak-free windows and mirrors, and this stuff is great. With the ammonia and rubbing alcohol, this has disinfectant properties. I have spray bottles of this in each bathroom, great for a spritz and wipe of the sink and toilet each morning. I also have my toilet brush sitting in a crock with this for a quick swish.

    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.

    Recipe #380243

    Highly effective! This recipe was shared with me yesterday by my neighbor, Kathrine. I had to ask her what she put on the weeds at the corner of her lot that adjoins my garden because although her weeds had turned brown and died, so did a large patch of my green grass. That's when she shared this recipe, and let me tell you....IT WORKS! Recipe can be doubled or tripled easily.

    Recipe #97039

    My aunt gave this to me and told me it worked great on really set in stains, even on clothes that have been dried repeatedly, and that I could use it on multi-colored (ie: striped) clothes. I was a little skeptical until I tried it out on my son's bibs and washcloths which were stained with strained sweet potatoes and carrots. It worked like a charm and now you can try it too!

    Recipe #99542

    I have been using this stain remover for about 5 years. With running a home daycare and young kids getting messes on their clothes I was tired of running out of stain remover and spending a fortune on it. So I searched all over the internet and combined some safe ingredients to make my own very cheap stain remover. It does work very well. **** Tip I learned for really dirty load of laundry** my husband helped clean up a flooded area by the lakes and his clothes where full of dirt and mud (I added soap, water and 1/8th cup bleach to the water after it spun for a couple minutes I added the clothes to the water and they came out very clean and smelled good) - Make sure you add the clothes after the water is filled and spinning to mix the bleach so not to stain your clothes.

    Recipe #52126

    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 how I clean my own cast iron skillets, cast iron lids, and cast iron Dutch ovens. If you are unsure about my method, don't try it. It works for me, because although my cast iron is very old, it has no breaks or cracks. I have had really nice results this way! For self-cleaning ovens! *** I read a review (and thanks for it really!) that this will delete the non-stick qualities. I should have made my intention clearer, since this is what I do when cast iron has too much old, old build-up or looks too disgusting from non-use. I am happy someone said something though! I use my cast iron alot, so mine continues to stay nice because of that.

    Recipe #162044

    I wrote this recipe myself. I make most of our household cleaners. There is no soap in this. It's great on soap scum. My shower sparkles.
