Spring Cleaning!

Written by Jennifer On April - 27 - 2009 1 Comment

A frugal person’s best friend for Spring cleaning are: Vinegar and Baking Soda!

I am not a person who never uses any chemical cleaners but I try to only buy them on sale and with coupons. I like my Clorox Bleach, Windex, Lysol (my BFF), and others.

Homemade cleaners are very cheap, though!

Here’s a site with 1001 Vinegar Tips. Some of my favorites:

  • Clean counter tops and make them smell sweet again with a cloth soaked in undiluted white distilled vinegar.
  • Deodorize and clean the garbage disposal with white distilled vinegar ice cubes.
  • Remove dark stains on an aluminum pot by boiling a mixture of 1 cup white distilled vinegar and 1 cup hot water.
  • Discourage ants by spraying undiluted white distilled vinegar outside doorways and windowsills, around appliances and wherever you find the pests coming in.
  • To remove grime, mildew, and scum from the tub, tile, shower curtain or door, wipe with undiluted white distilled vinegar. Rinse with water.
  • Some carpet stains can be removed with a paste of 2 tablespoons white distilled vinegar and 1/4 cup salt or baking soda.
