Vinegar and Dawn Tub and Shower Cleaner  "I found this on Pinterest and used it just yesterday...I will never be without this mixture again! Everything in my shower (glass doors, grout, scummy drain) looks sparkling new. I love that the smell isn't overpowering and all I had to do was wipe and rinse. Thank you!" by virginia

How to clean a microfiber couch. I will definitely try this!  (I didn't try this really, but we have a microfiber couch.  We just used a rug doctor and upholdstry cleaner.  Took the stains right out. It did nothing to the fabric itself.  Now, our couch set is light brown, not white.  So, IDK.  Maybe use the recipe in this pin?) by isabelle07

Tip to help clean urine out of your carpet or upholstery. Just take a container of regular old table salt and pour a generous amount on the wet area of your carpet. Let is set for several hours and then vacuum it up. The salt absorbs the urine. Anytime I have used this there is no stain or smell that remains. by J.H.

Here’s an all-natural way to clean drains: shower drains, kitchen sinks, bathroom sinks, and more. I tried this on our kitchen sink (after a disgusting “mystery” smell took over, which was coming from the drain – gross!) and it worked great. The kids loved watching so they could hear the “fizz” in the drain after the vinegar mixed with the baking soda. by jeannie

Amazing Dinner Idea! No link, but it seems pretty self explanatory.----I made this last night: I spread cream cheese on the crescent roll, put on a few pieces of spinach, added chicken, topped with cheddar and mozzarella cheese and rolled. For the sauce I took cream of chicken, milk and cheddar cheese. I baked the crescent rolls without the sauce and used the sauce for dipping. The rolls were delicious without the sauce, so next time I'm going to go without. by dollie

Homemade Peppermint Foot Cream I originally found this recipe at Frugally Sustainable and I fell in love with it the first time I used it. It wasn't just the great peppermint smell, but it was what it did to my feet. For the last several years my feet have taken quite a beating. They were rough, dry, cracking, and had some kind of fungus that would not go away no matter what I put on them! This cream is AmAzInG!! I now have my soft, non fungus feet back! Don't worry, I won't by mariam

Gotta Try This!!  Clean your tubs and showers with grapefruit!

1. Halve Grapefruit: 1 medium to large grapefruit will clean your entire bath or shower from top to bottom, including all the fixtures. Simply cut it in half with a knife and you'll be all set.

2. Sprinkle With Salt: Using 1 grapefruit half at a time, sprinkle liberally with salt. Wet your bathtub and sprinkle the remaining salt around the bottom.

3. Take That Scrubbing Bubbles!Scrub your grapefruit around your shower or tub, making sure to slightly "juice" the citrus over each fixture and lifting it every few seconds to pick up fresh salt from around the tub instead of just pushing it around.

4. Rinse: When all is said and done, simply rinse away the pulpy bits and the salt and your shower is as good as new. Not only is it clean, it will smell so fantastic you'll want to curl up in it and read a book. Ok, probably not, but you get the idea!

Additional Notes:
This technique will get thick grime and dirt rings off your shower area and does amazing work on cast iron tubs especially. You can also use this method to clean your sinks, toilets, tile and more — it just depends on how grapefruit crazy you want to get! by janine

I took part in the #LilaKAL that is going on at the moment. On My Making List 2015 was a warm sweater for me and I decided that this would be a quick way of getting it done. I held two yarns together - a strand of Pear Tree 8ply seconds and a strand of Isager Tvinni. It gave me a gauge of 16 stitches rather than 19 which meant I got to knit the smallest size and still get a 36" sweater. I used my bottom up/top down technique to get the fit how I wanted it.

Lemon used to brighten whites instead of bleach! I love it because the smell of bleach makes me crazy and any time I use it, I end up washing that load of laundry again to try and get rid of the smell.  Add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of lemon juice to the wash cycle to brighten whites! (lots of other great cleaning things on this page.) by jessicaj

I accidently discovered, while using a tip on here about how to clean your oven racks.. That if you put dyer sheets in hot water and let them soak, it will fresshen your house like a plug in.  I can smell the sheets from 3 rooms away.  It works better then any other air freshening method ive ever tried bar none.  Its pretty cool and cheaper then any brand airfreshener on the shelf.  Im amazed at how well the aroma from the sheets in hot water is smelling up the entire house and its a good thing! by twila

Stampin up jar of love, foxy friends and live, love, grow sets. I found this idea on Pinterest without any instructions so I had to figure out how to do it (while also making it my own since I do not ever simply copy ideas). I was originally going to make it into a card but it took me 2 hours to make so i cut the other half off and decided to make it a picture to keep instead. Maybe now that I know how to do it I can make some cards! by kelly.meli

Nars eyeshadow base- goes on clear- dries fast.  Makes your eyeshadow stay all day without smudging.  Also great for eyebrows if you fill them and blemishes that you want to put concealer on.  I waited a long time before trying this because I didn't want to spend the money on an "extra" product.  This isn't a scam at all.  It really works great. by loretta
