    While busy choking, gasping and wheezing with a bad cold, a friend asked, "Have you tried onion syrup?" I had never heard of it, so she sent me some internet links and lo and behold, "everyone" has heard of it but me!! Here is my simplified version. Cook time is "setting" time for the syrup, but you should be able to get a spoonful in about 2 hours if needed.

    Recipe #374232

    The vibrant green hue will impress your friends and family that you're being OH so healthy, but close your eyes and taste a strawberry-banana milkshake! The easy way to get three of your daily fruits and veggies - both times I made this I felt great afterwards! These green drinks are expensive at smoothie places and the grocery store, so why not make your own at home - no juicer necessary. Originally I created this for the Ready Set Cook #11 contest but it was too ugly too enter.

    Recipe #289081

    This is great during long car trips. It releases a relaxing scent and keeps kids from bouncing off the walls. I think I got this out of a Better Homes & Gardens magazine.

    Recipe #162217

    Here's what Jerry Baker uses to clean and deodorize pet urine-damaged areas.

    Recipe #101342

    I couldn't believe how dirty my watch and silver jewelry were when I tried this. Yuck! This saves money and is safe for you and the environment. The solution can be very drying to your hands so consider using rubber gloves or even tweezers to handle the jewelry. This recipe is from wire-sculpture.com.

    Thanks to Bev's recipe for cleaning my clothes washer I thought maybe someone would also enjoy a shiny clean dish washer!

    Recipe #66665

    Environmentally friendly, no harsh chemicals! We tried the expensive cleaners and found our floors still looked streaky and dull. This homemade cleaner makes them look bright, streak free and beautiful!

    Recipe #138101

    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

    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

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

    Recipe #355877

    This mixture both cleans, deodorize and sharpens the blades of your disposal

    Recipe #357234

    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.

    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!

    Recipe #16470

    After you use these you will never buy bubbles at the store again.

    Recipe #67222

    No joke, this simple concotion from the famous, Vermont Folk Medicine book by D.C. Jarvis works like a miracle, but it's just Mother Nature at work for us. Apple Cider Vinegar is known to have so many medicinal/healing attributes, so put this one to work for your sore or strep throat. Yep....strep. This will knock the crapola out of the bacteria that's tryin' to knock the crap out of you. Be very sure that you are using real apple cider vinegar, as Heinz now makes an apple cider vinegar "flavored" liquid. (WHY??)

    Recipe #106056

    The name brand is expensive but this is an inexpensive alternative and less harmful to your clothes than bleach!

    Recipe #32716

    Make sure you are close to a bed! I made this for my roommate in University when she had trouble sleeping, she had to crawl up the stairs to her bed (no joke):)

    Recipe #56056

    Easy and economical. Ideal for rinsing produce when you cannot get or afford to buy Organic. Removes a lot of residue like chemicals, pesticides and other matter quickly and easily. I saw this on Oprah and had to share! NOTE: Make sure to mix this in a DEEP pitcher. The baking soda and vinegar will react and foam everywhere if you do not. (just ask any elementary school kid who has ever made a volcano for science class)

    Recipe #300169

    This breakfast will balance your blood sugars and provide a sustained release of energy. The 7-Up, now that it does not have high fructose corn syrup any more, will give you a temporary boost of energy to help get you going and the rest will keep you going. Don't forget to take a B Complex vitamin and 1 gram of vitamin C along with your breakfast.

    Recipe #297982

    Carrots, Tomatoes, Cucumber, Cilantro Fiber, Antioxidants, Metabolism-raising components, Detoxifying Chemicals
