    Cleaning/Household Helpers

    These are a few "tips" I have found on Zaar. I think even Heloise hasn't thought of some of these clever solutions!

    My mom made this for me to try and we all loved it. I hope this also helps you keep the bugs away. This was also safe for my relative to use who was pregnant to keep the bugs away.

    WOW! No streaks, no smears, no buffing. This will clean ceramic tile counter tops, windows and their vinyl casings, SS appliances, sealed wood AND it removes hairspray from mirrors. So far that's all I've tried it on, as I came up with this recipe just this morning. I've been a cleaning fool today, experimenting on everything. I love it...Let me know what you think.

    Recipe #135802

    The best way I have found to get rid of ants both inside and out is the following recipe:

    Recipe #299504

    As the mum of a toddler I use a LOT of pre-wash spray. This is a recipe I found on CD Kitchen on one of the days I had run out of store bought.

    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!

    Recipe #16470

    From Chef # 225746 when posting a review for “Odor-be-gone Pet Urine Remover “.”Variation on the odor remover recipe is a Weed Killer recipe”. I was searching under “pet” and found the original posting and the review and wanted to save the weed killer recipe, but as of this time, the original Chef hasn’t posted anything. I hope they forgive such an intrusion, but I’m trying to give credit where it’s due! :>

    Recipe #254704

    Once in a while it seems we /must/ bite the bullet and actually use a '-cide'. While we seem to be able to usually manage household and plant pests with care and nature's remedies, after bringing home a potted jade plant that went from vibrant and robust to 3 short stalks with only 2 leaves each due to teensy little buggers, I tried this concoction from www.garlic-acres.com. The jade recovered, I didn't worry about the cats if they nibbled, and it got rid of the munchers that were feasting on my pomegranate tree, too! Who knew???

    Recipe #252211

    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 stuff is amazing. I wish I could remember who originally gave me the recipe. I used it often when training a new puppy right after puchasing new carpet. It even worked on non-pet related stains. And I used Dawn instead of Joy.

    Recipe #215637

    Use every 4 to 6 weeks to nourish your plants. Servings depend on amount of plants and usage, so I just put 10.

    Recipe #249307

    This is a safe and effective insecticide for plants.

    Our HOA is a stickler about grass/weeds in the expansion joints of the driveway, but I am extremely leery of herbicides (or any commercial 'cide'). This easy mixture is also safe enough to let my 10 yr old help out when we are sprucing up the yard! How many lawn care products can say that?!? =)

    Recipe #248642

    This is straight out of the laundry room of DH's grandmother; it works too! I've also entered this under the "kid friendly" category because there was no "parent friendly" category to choose from! This spray concoction has been a godsend when getting stains out of my toddlers clothes.

    Recipe #68119

    I'm not sure where I found this, but I tried it today and dang...... it works!!! That odd urine smell in the backyard is totally gone! I feel funny posting this as a "recipe", but I'm sure there are others out there that could use this. LOL I'm chuckling... servings?? Oh, and I'm talking about the old fashioned Listerine!

    My daughter spilled a cup of grape juice on her hot pink shirt. This did the trick, and the shirt's still pink! I got this from my sister in law and am posting it here so I don't lose it. The "dish detergent" is actually Cascade automatic dishwasher detergent-it wouldn't let me enter that as an ingredient.

    Recipe #194639

    One way to get shiny results without the chemicals.

    Recipe #70980

    Here's what Jerry Baker uses to clean and deodorize pet urine-damaged areas.

    Recipe #101342

    I find lots of uses for this...grandchildren prefer it when they are making posters..

    The name brand is expensive but this is an inexpensive alternative and less harmful to your clothes than bleach!

    Recipe #32716

    A wonderful dirt cheap alternative to buying a $5 bottle of Febreze. This version is about 5 cents to make and the scent is much nicer too. I use it all the time.
