Did you know that vinegar is a great household cleaner? I did this today: Place one cup of bleach on the bottom rack of your dishwasher. Run cycle, but stop before the dry cycle begins. Then put one cup of vinegar on bottom rack, and run cycle again. My dishwasher looks and smells fantastic, and all of the hard water deposits are GONE! I did have to scrub around the edges with a toothbrush to get a little bit of leftover gunk, but it really worked! You should also clean your washing machine this way. Use 2 cups of vinegar and run a hot cycle. Keeps your machine clean and it will run better and last longer. Other uses: *boil 1/2 c distilled vinegar in water in the microwave to loosen baked on food. Wipes right off! *rub shower doors with vinegar soaked sponge...gets rid of soap residue *clean gunky iron w/sponge soaked in vinegar *2 Tbsp to 1 pint water to wash fruits and vegetables (will kill bacteria) *equal parts water/vinegar to wash windows streak free *1 cup ammonia, ½ cup white distilled or cider vinegar and ¼ cup baking soda with 1 gallon of warm water. Wipe this solution over walls or blinds with a sponge or cloth and rinse with clear water. Dirt and grime comes off easily and the solution will not dull the painted finish or leave streaks.
The Brain: Are you pondering what I'm pondering? Pinky: I think so Brain, but burlap chafes me so.
