    Thank you "The View"

    Recipe #25898

    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.

    Highly effective! This recipe was shared with me yesterday by my neighbor, Kathrine. I had to ask her what she put on the weeds at the corner of her lot that adjoins my garden because although her weeds had turned brown and died, so did a large patch of my green grass. That's when she shared this recipe, and let me tell you....IT WORKS! Recipe can be doubled or tripled easily.

    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:

    Recipe #70980

    This is one of my most "precious" recipes that I am so proud to be sharing with my friends on Zaar and the rest of the world. This recipe was born on the 23rd of February at close to midnight(isn't that somethin'!). It just happened that my kitchen was sparkling clean, but I had several of these horrible grease marks all over my cooking unit which were not taking the name of going, no matter how much I scrubbed them using baking soda and vinegar(the combo generally works very well to cut through grease). I was slogging like crazy trying so very hard, when it just occured to me that I could try using washing soda to fight these grease marks. When I looked at the washing soda box, it didn't mention that washing soda works to fight grease. So, I looked up the borax box and that said it does work to fight grease. Well, then, I just took the box straight into my kitchen and called my dad to help me(cos my arm was so tired with the 30 minutes of scrubbing). When my dad got to the kitchen, he saw the box of borax and got an idea. He said, why not try using some vinegar, some borax powder and some Surgical spirit..and then trying to scrub! We did and guess what - It worked like a charm plus it hardly costs few pennies!!! Now, I have the best grease fighter right here!!! I hope it will do you as much good as it did me:) Please note: The number of servings really depends on how much grease you got to fight! The cooking time is how much time it took me to get rid of all the horrible grease.

    An inexpensive alternative to the store-bought variety. To check for color-fastness: test a bit of cleaner on an inconspicuous area of the carpet before using the first time.

    Recipe #101568

    I made this all by myself and it works like a charm! This was actually put together last weekend when I was trying my hardest to clean my brother's bath tub's plastic shower curtain that had mildew and alot of dirt all over it. Now, it's shining like it's brand new; thanks to this!

    Recipe #95028

    Recipe #82410

    Recipe #59326

    This makes an excellent gift. Make sure you make some for yourself too though because it really smells wonderful. Please note, you need to use whole cloves. Ground cloves are much stronger and will definitely overwhelm the other scents. If you aren't a fan of cloves, feel free to leave them out entirely. I do sometimes.

    This is for your Christmas tree, not YOU!

    Recipe #42429

    I had tried most everything to clean the porcelain enamel grates on my cooktop with little success. Then I read the use & care guide that came with the cooktop. How simple is this! NOTE: I used a plastic trash bag with a tie top. When entering this "recipe", a plastic bag wasn't recognized but a ziploc was. Ignore that "ingredient" ;-)

    Recipe #185146

    This is wonderful for keeping your shower curtains clean from dirt and mold. Cook time is wash cycle.
