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

    I have never tried this yet but looks interesting, so thought I'd share it

    Recipe #75869

    10 Reviews |  By Sully7

    This cleaner is great. I use it for everything. Laundry (1/2 cup per load) Dishes (a squirt in the sink) Dishwashers (in the prewash only)Bathroom. It is a combination of many recipies for laundry soap I have discovered on the web, but it will clean everything! One batch will last a long time and will cost way less than $1. I just discovered a new use for this awesome stuff... It cleans grout! Just pour some on your floor (My kitchen grout was nasty!) and scrub the grout lightly. Rinse it and enjoy clean grout with no nasty chemicals!!!

    I was in desperate need of a skunk smell remover after our dog Cooper was sprayed by a skunk eating birdseed one evening at our bird feeder. I found this recipe on another web site. We used it on him and I was quite surprised how well it worked. I am posting it here for safekeeping incase it happens again. Cooper did not like the cold shampoo mixture but at this point, he had no chose, it was either this or he sleeps in the garage.

    Recipe #232498

    This is by far the best all purpose cleaner I've found. It is fabulous on windows and mirrors, degreases wonderfully, and cuts gunk on sinks etc. and shines, shines, shines. I use it for everything but wood.

    Recipe #26191

    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.

    Use this recipe to clean your coffee maker. A clean machine makes better tasting coffee!

    Recipe #156833

    Now how come no one mentioned this snazzy little trick in high school chemistry all those years ago?

    Recipe #49932

    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.

    This is great for sinks, showers and even hands. My husband fixed our roof and his hands were full of tar. He used this and the tar "melted off!" He said it was better than the hand cleaner mechanics use to get the oil off their hands! It shines my stainless steel sink, it doesn't scratch my stovetop and it is awesome on the tub. Best of all it is easy and cheap! I found it on a make your own cleaner website and it works!

    Recipe #85197

    A cheaper alternative to buying liquid fabric softener at the store

    I thought I would post this recipe for Hummingbird Feeding Solution, because it took me a while to find it!

    Recipe #27310

    I got this recipe from a newsletter I get by e-mail. Sorry, don't remember the name but this works really well and I thought it should be shared.

    No more streaks and never buy expensive window cleaner again! This was raved and raved about on another message board where I found it. I had to try this to believe it - it is fabulous!

    Found via Google in reply to a request. Rinse agent is the blue liquid you add to your dishwasher once a month. Jet-dry is the most popular brand but Cascade also makes one.

    Perfect to prevent drains from clogging.

    Recipe #93098

    To rid your pan of burnt food stains, this is an easy trick I learnt here in Mumbai from the Asian Age newspaper's article "Rid your kitchen of mess" by Rupali Nayar. Enjoy!

    Recipe #124410

    Use this spray on plants that are being attacked by caterpillars and other chewing pests. Caterpillars would rather starve than eat leaves sprayed with this. this also has been used by some as a possum repellent.

    Recipe #68329

    by Carol Martino This mixture is non-toxic and it will not harm any animal, but will succeed in keeping them away. This probably will not work for birds (birds do not have a sense of smell.) Recommended by our local wildlife rehabber.

    This is really good for between patio stones or rock areas that tend to sprout weeds. Do not use it on your lawn. The weeds will grow back but then just spray them again

    Another helpful tip from a book by Jerry Baker. Here's a laundry challenge that's been around as long as laundry itself: getting yellow perspiration stains out of shirt underarms. To treat white shirts, there's nothing better than this recipe.
