Anytime I read an article, see or hear a tip about using everyday household items to replace another store bought chemical or cleaner, I am ecstatic. So when the email subject line “xx Ways to Make Your Old Stuff New” begged me to open it, I just couldn’t resist!
I’m sharing my favorites with you.
Toothpaste – Not only good to fight against cavities, but also works well with jewelry and filling holes. White toothpaste can be used to fill in small nail holes on white walls. Remember this when you’re ready to move out of your apartment or rental house so you can retain more of your deposit.
White Bread – Remove the crusts and you have a wallpaper cleaner. Tear into bite sized pieces to remove grime, fingerprints and small smudges. Who knew??
Vinegar – Another reason to keep a gallon of this gem in your cupboard; combine vinegar and salt into a paste and apply to bathroom tile and faucets to remove lime buildup. Need a drain cleaner? Pour 1/4 cup baking soda in your drains, then follow with 1 cup of vinegar. Set for about 15 minutes, then pour a pot of boiling water down the drain.
WD-40 – Spray on stainless steel and wipe with a clean cloth for a spotless shine.
