    Recipe #357234

    I have large leafy plants that can get really dusty. I use this solution every 4 - 5 months to keep them clean. The computer does not recognize "part" so I have used tsp.

    Recipe #357256

    If you check the dangers of fabric softener you will appericate this simple recipe that is much safer.

    Recipe #355877

    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.

    Recipe #180133

    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.

    Thanks to Bev's recipe for cleaning my clothes washer I thought maybe someone would also enjoy a shiny clean dish washer!

    Recipe #66665

    This smells really good simmering on your burner or in a small potpourri or crock pot. The cookin time is however long you want to simmer it.

    Recipe #27160

    I found this recipe online and am giving it a try. I am posting it here so I can find it when I run out of this first batch.

    Recipe #337167

    This cleanser is so simple. You probably already have the main ingredient in you cupboard. It leaves your sink and your pots sparkling clean without the use of harsh chemicals or perfumes.

    Recipe #311883

    This will help take care of those fruit flies that gather around the stuff you have to take out to the compost pile or those bananas you haven't gotten around to baking with yet. The photo I posted (the one with the cherry & grape tomatoes) shows several fruit flies on the paper already (and a couple are in the vinegar, though you can't see them)--not even three minutes after making the trap! Some kinds of cider vinegar work better than others--typically, I find the darker the vinegar, the better it works. I know some people have said they prefer to use plastic wrap over the top, but I find that the paper cone (though it takes some fiddling to get it to fit just right) works best.

    Recipe #187531

    A tip I got from the Australian Women's Weekly.

    Recipe #331579

    I had to share this one. It's amazing. Just two ingredients and a spray bottle! I found this on beingfrugal.net. and it's just too good not to post. You spray it on and leave it, like those expensive (and toxic) cleaners made for bathtubs. I have used it on everything that I would use a spray cleaner on and it is great. It's cheap, natural, and it works great!

    Recipe #319938

    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.

    Why buy Pledge when 2 ingredients you probably have in your kitchen work just as well? From Vegetarian Times magazine.

    Recipe #320196

    And environmentally friendly, easy, non-chemical way to clean your oven. No over-powering fumes.

    Recipe #138100

    From www.TopSecretRecipes.com It's all about the sauce with this one. This sweet, tangy and slightly spicy sauce goes perfectly with salmon, but can also be used on chicken or ribs. Just be sure to watch the sauce closely as it cooks in case it starts to bubble over. It's gonna get thicker as it cools, so be sure not to overcook it. If it becomes too thick, just add a bit of water to thin it out.
