Am I the only
tightwad frugal person out there who feels that the prices on some cleaning solutions is a bit much? PS, this is not a sponsored post. It’s just some pointers I’ve discovered recently.
For laundry, you need fabric softener, and detergent.
For your bathtub, you need soap scum remover.
For your wood floors you need a special wood floor cleaner that won’t leave streaks or damage the wood.
Did you know that there is one cleaner you can use on all that stuff? You probably won’t find it on the cleaning aisle, so head to the salad dressing aisle, and pick up a gallon of vinegar. It’s cheap, all natural, and although the smell can be a bit pungent, it doesn’t stick, so you don’t have to worry about your house smelling like a fish and chips shop.
If you throw a half cup of vinegar in your wash with new clothes, it will help the colors stay fast, and it will help correct and prevent pilling.
If you sprinkle baking soda in your bathtub, spray it all over with vinegar and let it sit a while, when you return, the soap scum will scrub right off.
Finally, if you mix half a cup of vinegar in a gallon of hot water, and wash your wood floors, they will be clean, shiny and non-streaky. At least for the 4 minutes before you kids spill milk on the floor again. (Why do kids manage never to spill milk right before you mop? Why is it always immediately after?)
I’ve also heard of vinegar as an agent to remove burnt on food from pans.
