    Worked on my new floor except for the sticky stuff from the underlayment. My kids stuck the underlayment to my new floor and I could not get the sticky stuff off the floor. I tried vinegar and water and a plastic scraper, orange cleaner and hand soap and plastic scraper. Still sticky stuff. Then I remembered peanut butter will remove gum from hair so I figured it was worth a shot. Yes, PEANUT BUTTER removes sticky stuff from the floor. So if you end up with tape or other sticky stuff on the floor try peanut butter and a plastic scraper. Hope this helps someone!!

    Squeaky clean floors (Caution, this cleaner makes your floors so clean they are slippery!)! I used on real hardwoods, linoleum as well. Worked great. I mopped and then went over it with a rag to get up more of the water. Super! Bye bye Lysol and Swifter! Update: I added 10 drops of Grapefruit Seed Extract for disinfecting as well.

    So simple and so cheap! Have used vinegar and water for my windows, would never have thought about using on laminate floors. Worked wonders and house smelled so good after. Thanks!!!

    Worked pretty good with HOT water. I normally use the Shaw brand laminate floor cleaner since I have Shaw laminate floors. The vinegar stuff picked up a lot more grime than my normal cleaner and did not leave a residue. It dried really fast and mostly streak-free. I even used it on my porcelain tile in my kitchen and now the tile feels clean. The only downside is the vinegary smell lingering in my house now, but I will use this again!

    I really didn't think this would work but it does...perfectly! I do go behind and towel dry but it's worth it to have smudge free shiny floors. Thank you!!


Most of my recipes are dairy free since I discovered many years ago that I am lactose intolerant. While I have had to give up some much-loved recipes, we have discovered that most can be modified to accommodate the changes to our diet. Most of my recipes say dairy free but there are a few from my childhood that may have dairy! I also have an intolerance to MSG so we spend a lot of time reading labels. Usually, it is just easier to cook from scratch, so we don't use many pre-made foods from the grocery store.</p> I like recipes I can make with minimal ingredients, real food I have in my kitchen, that are also easy to make!
