Pinch that Penny

The Only Spot Remover You Will Ever Need

Mix one part Dawn plain dishwashing liquid, with two parts hydrogen peroxide, pour it directly on the stain, and watch it disappear like magic. If it's a big stain on a large garment, you can mix the same equation and add it to a bucket of hot water and just dunk the entire garment in there. This works on almost any stain and will even get rid of chocolate, red wine, and barbecue sauce

Tub Cleaner - vinegar and dish soap, no scrubbing! Heat 1/2C white vinegar in m'wave for 90 sec, pour int spray bottle. Add 1/2C BLUE Dawn dish soap. Shake gently to mix. Spray on surface, let it sit 1-2 hours. Just wipe it away then rinse with water. Should also take soap scum off shower doors!

Homemade Fabric Softner in 5 Easy Steps:

Here are the items that you will need:

1 cup Baking Soda

... 6 cups White Vinegar

6 cups Hot Tap Water

2 cups cheap hair conditioner or 2 cups of your favorite store bought fabric softener

Here are the 5 Easy Steps:

Step 1. In a 4-5 gallon bucket add 1 Cup of Any Brand Baking Soda.

Step 2. Add 1 Cup of White Vinegar (you will be using 6 total cups of white vinegar for this recipe.)

Step 3. Add 6 Cups of Hot Tap Water

Step 4. Add 5 Cups of White Vinegar

Step 5. Add 2 cups of low cost Hair Conditioner or 2 cups of your favorite fabric softener.

Follow the above steps. Stir, fill your containers and give the container a shake or two before you use it. Use the same amount of your homemade softener as you would normally use the store bought brand. I made two batches and it cost me under $4 for both of the pictured containers! This will last the two of us for at least 4 months.
