    Default DIY drain cleaner and other stuff

    I found these recipes through an eversave pfd file and thought they might be useful

    Homemade Cleaning Products

    Save time and money by making your own household cleaners from ingredients you probably already have in your cabinet. No need to clip coupons or comparison shop. Make these at home and you’ve already saved a bundle. Plus, these all natural solutions are better for you – and your family.

    Homemade glass and window cleaner

    1 cup rubbing alcohol
    1 cup water
    1 tablespoon vinegar

    Combine ingredients into a spray bottle, and voila – homemade Windex!

    Homemade furniture polish

    1 cup olive oil
    1/2 cup lemon juice

    Use a soft cloth and rub into your woodwork, wooden furniture and other wooden household items. It’s DIY Pledge!

    Homemade Multi-purpose Surface Cleaner

    1 cup white vinegar
    1 cup water

    Homemade Abrasive Cleanser

    3 Parts Baking Soda
    1 Part Water

    Baking Soda is great as an abrasive cleanser. Combine it with dish detergent for a great stovetop cleaner and extra cleaning power.

    Bonus Tips:

    Cleaning Powers of Vinegar
    White vinegar is great for cleaning everything: whirlpool tub jets, soap scum, electric stove tops and it gets the "gunk" out of any clogged lotion or soap pump. Use it in your dishwasher as a homemade rinse agent to make glassware sparkle. Use it to clean your coffee maker by running it through with a vinegar mix once, then water.

    The Vinegar Solution
    1 part vinegar
    2 parts water

    Plus: For cleaning pipe sludge and stubborn drains, use vinegar and baking soda to clear those clogs and help create a much more pleasant odor. Here’s how: Pour baking soda down the clogged drain, followed by white vinegar, then boiling water. Your pipes should become unclogged in no time! * Do NOT use this method after you’ve already used a store-bought chemical based drain cleaner.

    Oh how timely! My son just asked me to e-mail my list of cleaning supplies and I thought I'd have to hand type them into the e-mail! Thanks! Now I don't even have to think! Nice to copy and paste!
