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

    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.

    Recipe #434275

    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.

    Recipe #388511

    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.

    Recipe #380367

    I have come up with a formula for making my fabric softener last three times as long, and my clothes are softer than with the fabric softener alone. I buy a large bottle of softener. Then I pour:

    This test will determine if any bacteria are present in your drinking water.

    Recipe #366359

    I found this "recipe" on the internet and I will never buy Clorox Anywhere Spray again!

    Recipe #363521

    Use once a month, and your plants will be greener and healthier

    Recipe #357643

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

    Recipe #355877

    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.

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

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

    Chemical-free! Because Pinesol and Mr. Clean make me gag. Add some essential oils (I like lavender) if you desire a prettier smell. From Vegetarian Times magazine.

    Recipe #320192

    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

    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

    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. :)

    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 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

    This came from a book and I tried it!

    Recipe #211375

    This is a miracle recipe for getting rid of those pesty ants that come every spring and summer. Mix up the solution, pack cotton balls in a jar cover, and put the solution on and they will be gone.

    Recipe #203233

    When i was a little girl we made this at church one evening. I was so excited to try it out, and it really works!
