    One way to get shiny results without the chemicals.

    Recipe #70980

    There can be no easier way to unclog a clogged kitchen sink! ENJOY! This is one recipe that has me really impressed with results.

    Recipe #64419

    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

    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

    Don't throw away your foam soap dispenser or spend extra on the refills when you run out. It's easy to make your own! This also works with shampoo.

    Recipe #103893

    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

    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.

    Recipe #135802

    Cleaning your microwave couldn't get any easier than this!

    This recipe found in the Toronto Star. It comes from Green Clean by Linda and Mason Hunter and Mikki Halpin. Quote: "For the first time in the history of the world, every human being is now subjected to contact with dangerous chemicals, from the moment of conception until death." Rachel Carson, Silent Spring, 1962 Note: After the reviewers' comments, I've changed the number of drop of essential oils)

    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!
