Default Best Household Hints

What are some of your best household hints? Things that make your life a little easier, or that might be a "greener" way to do things?

I clean out the foul smell of my garbage disposal buy dumping half of an old box of baking soda (the one I used for the fridge) down it before I go to bed. Then in the morning I pour about 3 cups of vinegar mixed with 1 cup of water down it. Quite a show... and a science lesson for the kids too!

My old vacuum got that old vacuum smell so I cut up a cardboard car air freshener and sucked that up. That worked pretty for quite a while.

What hints make your life easier?

Mr. Clean Erasers!!!!! Wow, I don't know how I did my bathroom before those.

Yah, I'm a little "Mr. Mom-ish". No one cleans as well as I do, so I end up doing all the cleaning

Wet Swiffer is a close second to revolutionary products for my cleaning routine

Absolutely. I use them to clean my stove as well. Especially the fan hood that gets that oily dust stuff on it. Add a little moisture to the pad and you should be good to go

There is a citrus cleaner out there that I used to use for the same thing that worked really well. I used to be in the cleaning supply business and lot of customers really liked citrus-based cleaners for cutting through grease.


ps...after saying all that, I'm still a tough guy....grrrrrrr....who just likes things to be clean

Well I always say, the sexiest thing my can husband do is empty the dishwasher! Any man who'll clean anything around the house is a stud-muffin in my book!!

what's the best thing to clean water stains from a fiberglass shower? Something that won't kill ya with it's deadly fumes, the product I use works great but you about need a respirator to do the job.

To be honest I'm a clean freak too, actually a neet freak, clean not too bad but if it doesnt move for over a month in my house you better put a claim on it cuase it's off to the Junkyard

I love to drive my trailer there!

Makes me feel like a big man

But deep down I'm a softy, I just pretend to be tuff!

Is it the kind for cars or the kind you use on hardwood floors?

I've been thinking of using car wax on my tanning beds at work.

When it comes to smelly things, I swear by pine sol. I haven't found an odor yet that pine sol didn't get rid of.
Another vaccum cleaner idea: dump a little of a scent sachet into bag or canister. It will fragrance your room.

A clothing trick: If your whites ever start looking dingy, soak them in warm/hot water and cascade (dish soap).

Aw....us guys (the tough ones, remember...grrrrrr), we just wear them until they are dingy then we throw them out and get new ones. Easier that way

....yah, I may be a clean freak, but I suck at doing the laundry (actually, I blame the machines because I can do no wrong ).

Ok I have to borrow that excuse. It's the machines fault. I knew the stain was there. I wonder why the machine didn't take care of it??

Now, I've never tried it....but apparently, if you have a pot or something that is turning dark, like from cooked on grease and stuff, if you use meat tenderiser and a damp cloth, it's supposed to take the black stuff off... gonna have to give it a shot

You can put out shallow pan of beer in your back garden to get rid of slugs.
