Cleaning sponges If you use sponges or washcloths for your dishes or cleaning, make sure that you either soak them in bleach water or run them through the washing machine often w/bleach to disinfect.
Hard Water Spots - To remove hard water spots cover the stains with paper towels soaked in white vinegar. Leave them in the for an hour, then scrub with a little baking soda.
Fresh Scents - Use a dab of perfume or cologne right near the light bulbs. When it heats up it will fill the room with the fragrance.
Ironing Creases - Use wax to iron the crease in clothes. Sandwich the wax paper around the crease area and iron on top of the wax paper. It leaves a little of the wax in the material (especially cotton) so that the crease would stay in longer. And use the wax paper to run the iron over it to keep the iron slick.
Fresh Clothes To keep clothes in the drawers or blankets smelling fresh, store with an unwrapped bar soap.
Storing Linens - Get more linens and towels into a small space by folding them neatly, then rolling them up tightly.
Facial Scrub -Try Baking Soda as an invigorating, yet gentle, facial scrub. Apply a paste of 3 parts Baking Soda to 1 part water in a gentle circular motion after washing face with soap and water. Rinse clean for a fresh scrubbed face! (Sonya)
No Stick Pasta -To prevent pasta from boiling over and sticking together, add some butter or oil and salt. Always add the pasta to the water after it has boiled, not before.
To keep bugs out of flour type products; flour, cornmeal, etc.. add a bay leaf to each canister. Works like magic. (Steve H)
Coffee Budgeting - Have a favorite coffee but it costs too much? Buy it and some regular coffee and just add a little bit of your favorite to the regular, it tastes like your favorite and cheaper then just using your favorite alone.
