New Ideas For Household Items

Here are some new ideas for household items:

  • Mix cream of tartar with a little water or vinegar to tackle tough stains like that grubby grout in the shower
  • Run dryer sheets along your baseboards to repel dust, dirt, and pet hair.  They are also handy for cleaning pet hair off of furniture
  • Shave your legs with a thin layer of olive oil.  You will get a closer shave with less razor burn, plus your legs will be silky smooth
  • Mix 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup vinegar in a microwave safe mug or bowl, and heat until it boils.  This combo melts away gross stains and food so that you can easily wipe your dirty microwave clean
  • Fill a coffee filter with potpourri or baking soda and close with a twist tie.  Throw these cheap and chemical free air fresheners i in drawers, cars, closets, or wherever
  • Remove a tricky splinter by soaking your finger in Epsom salt and water.  Epsom salt forces the splinter to the surface of your skin for quick and painless removal
  • Rather than bringing harsh chemicals into your home, sprinkle cinnamon to drive away ants
  • Treat blemishes overnight with a dab of honey covered by a bandage.
