Effective toilet cleaning isn’t about using the most expensive cleaner, it’s about using the right cleaner. So what does Granny use? Vinegar!
For a clean toilet without a lot of fuss, just pour a couple cups of vinegar into the toilet before bed, swish it with a toilet brush in the morning, and flush. This simple strategy will sanitize your toilet and remove those stubborn hard water stains too.
One of the best ways to save money is by not buying too many cleaning products. It’s not only less expensive, but often it’s better for the environment to avoid harsh chemicals. And with the right mix of ingredients, homemade cleaning solutions often work just as well, and sometimes better, than their store bought counterparts.
The three ingredients to always have on hand for cleaning are baking soda, vinegar, and Dawn dishwashing detergent. You can clean almost anything with these three items.
To clean windows, mix 2 cups of water, 1/4 cup of white distilled vinegar, and up to 1/2 teaspoon of Dawn in a spray bottle. It cleans windows beautifully!
For floors, add 1 cup vinegar to 1 gallon hot water and mop away!
The best bathroom cleaner is a spray bottle filled with 1/2 cup Dawn and as much vinegar as the bottle holds. It works better than any commercial tub cleaner I’ve ever tried!
For quick itch relief, try a paste of 1/4 teaspoon baking soda (just a small bit of ice water to make the paste). Spread this over the bite area. You can also use meat tenderizer for similar results.
A banana really is a natural remedy for many ills. When you compare it to an apple, it has four times the protein, twice the carbohydrate, three times the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals. It is also rich in potassium and is one of the best value foods around So maybe its time to change that well-known phrase so that we say, “A banana a day keeps the doctor away!”
Although it looks like a tree, the banana grows on grows on a plant that belongs to the orchid family.
Peel a banana from the bottom and you won’t have to pick the little ’stringy things’ off of it.
Banana Ripening: Take your bananas apart when you get home from the store. If you leave them connected at the stem, they ripen faster..
