    I use white vinegar only. In the bleach section of my front load washing machine I put vinegar in to deodorize clothing that I?m not bleaching. My mom used w. vinegar to get the white scratches off her drinking glasses. I think she just poured about ? a cup in each load. I put vinegar/water/alcohol in a squirt bottle and use it as a cleaning agent. I also used to use vinegar in my mop water. Now I have a steam cleaner and use it (which works great by the way!) I also used to use vinegar to clean windows but now my steamer does that for me. When we had carpet I?d put it on spots where the pets made a mess and it?d help deodorize the area. But pet messes are nasty and I?m so happy we have tile/wood.



    That?s all I can think of for now.

    I am going to use white vinegar and hot water in a spray bottle to remove
    wallpaper in our bathroom.

    White Vinegar and water...1/2 and 1/2 put in a spray bottle is

    perfect for cleaning mirrors, windows, car windows ( and if your a
    smoker it cuts the smoke and does not smear it all over)

    I worked in the mirror industry for more than 5 years
    and learned that vinegar can damage mirrors over time.
    Fumes can damage the bond between the silver and the
    glass. It is more shows up quicker on mirrors without
    frames. While this works great on windows, i would
    not advise using vinegar on mirrors.

    If that doesn?t work I?ve used fabric softener to remove wallpaper.

    wallpaper remover?


    really? Have you done that before? Every room in our house has wallpaper that needs to come down, and that would be my least expensive option!

    In my parent's home, yes. It works like a charm. Once you get the paper off, use a sponge dipped into a bucket with vinegar and warm water in it to wipe down the walls before putting up paint or more wallpaper. At my parent's, new wallpaper went up.

    Try fabric softner, mix fabric softner (1 part water, 2 parts softner) with water, wipe over paper with a sponge & the paper comes right off.

    I tried that too.
    Both work - the fabric softener (original Downy worked best) and vinegar.

    Neither costs as much as the commercial products either.

    Re: Budget101.com : wallpaper remover?


    Deb,
    If you peel of the top layer of the wall paper and take a sponge and wipe the remainder of the paper with a water and liquid laundry softner it will remove the remainder also It takes a little longer then the commercial removers...it might even be slower then the vinegar...I haven't tried that.
    You can also put the water mixture in a spray bottle and spritz the walls with it.
    Good luck! LOL
    I have JUST finished removing wallpaper in my kitchen and foyer Not fun!!
    Just my 2 cents.

    you can also use fabric softener diluted with water.
    We used the generic version from the dollar store and
    had to do very little scraping. (the wallpaper was
    several layers and about 30 years old).

    Home Depot has a steamer
    can do a large room in 3 hours

    the paper lifts off and falls to the floor with very little scraping

    I used a steamer, I think it was Black and Decker, and I tell you, it
    saved a lot of headaches and alot of elbow grease. You need to use it
    with a scraper blade, like a putty knife or something like that, but
    all you do is hold it on a specific area, and let me tell you, I did
    my whole house also, it takes a little time, buy once you start at the
    top, everything runs down the wall, and we had 8 layers in some
    rooms. But it worked really well.

    A tablespoon of cider vinegar taken after a muscle cramp will make the pain vanish FAST!! I never could figure out if the vinegar took away the pain or the shock of swallowing it just made you forget how bad you felt :O)
