Okay ladies I know there are lots of household cleaning tips that we all know so let's share some



Fill a spray bottle with hydrogen peroxide and 1/2 handful of baking soda. Shake it up and spray on carpet stains, upholstery stains, and clothing stains

Tub Cleaner - vinegar and dish soap, no scrubbing! Heat 1/2C white vinegar in m'wave for 90 sec, pour int spray bottle. Add 1/2C BLUE Dawn dish soap. Shake gently to mix. Spray on surface, let it sit 1-2 hours. Just wipe it away then rinse with water. Should also take soap scum off shower doors!

Toilet Cleaner- Add a cup of baking soda to the toilet, leave it for an hour, and then flush. It will clean the toilet and absorb the odor.

Natural way to Unclog Drains
Use a plumber's snake or an untwisted coat hanger to pull out as much gunk as possible from clogged drain. Pour 1/2 cup of baking soda or washing soda down the drain. Gradually add 1/2 cup of white vinegar. Let the mixture fizz and dissolve. Carefully pour in boiling water from a tea kettle. Wait 30 minutes and repeat as necessary. Before calling a plumber, let things cool off and snake again.

Grout Cleaner
To kill mildew and whiten grout without chlorine, combine baking soda with hydrogen peroxide or white vinegar to make a paste. Apply to grout and let sit at least 30 minutes, then scrub.

Soft Scrub
1 cup baking soda, warm water, 2 to 3 drops liquid soap
Combine baking soda with enough water to form a paste. Add liquid soup. Aplly to surfaces and let sit at least 5 minutes. Scrub with a nonabrasive sponge, rinse and wipe off residue.

-My favorite cleaning tip for laundry is fels naptha bar soap (in the soap or laundry aisle) it's $1 and it lasts forever.

I put it on any stain, grease, food, whatever and it always comes out. I just wet the garment, soap it up and lather it up good and then put it in the dirty clothes. I don't even wash things right away and it gets stains out so well.

It even got smashed fresh raspberries out of a new outfit of Mallory's a couple days ago.

-Also, once a week, I take a shower in Mike's bathroom and clean it while I'm in there. It's so much easier to clean a shower/tub when you're actually in it, instead of fully clothed, leaning over to scrub the tub!

-Baking soda will clean silver jewerly gently. Just use baking soda, a little water to make a paste and a soft toothbrush or towel. It will get the tarnish off and they will shine! (real silverware too).

-I also use old toothbrushes to clean around my sinks and handles in the shower.
