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

    This is great for injuries and keeping beverages cool.

    Recipe #91931

    One way to get shiny results without the chemicals.

    Recipe #70980

    From the Thursday magazine; this was submitted by Jyoti S. Mehta.

    Recipe #59326

    Make your own dishwasher detergent.I found this on a DIY site.

    Recipe #83592

    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

    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.

    Recipe #71485

    I used the method to reduce the flea population in my den after it exploded. Didn't want to use that much Frontline or the bug bombs. I DID use Frontline but just 3 or 4 squirts. Less chemicals in my house, the better.

    Recipe #87343

    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

    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!

    Recipe #247941

    This is a safe and effective insecticide for plants.

    Recipe #249312

    A quick way to save those special shoes.

    Jerry Baker's books have the most amazing household tips and helpful hints. Here's another good one! If you can't get to a blood stain right away and it's had a chance to make itself at home, hydrogen peroxide may not do the trick. Try this instead:

    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.
