Tipster Tuesday

A few of my favorite tips.....

1. Once a week put your sponges and the little metal screen sink strainers through the dishwasher. They come out sparkling clean. On this day I usually do the microwave tray and knick knacks from around the house, light covers etc.

2. Before you leave for a day trip or out of town fill a spray bottle with vinegar and spray the whole house. Couches floors curtains etc. You won't have to be there while the vinegar smell dissaptes but when you return your house will be fresh smelling and it kills germs too.

3. Make your own fabric softner. Vinegar in a jug with some essential oil if you like or just plain. You towels come out really fluffy and really clean instead of getting that fabric softner build up.

4. Make your own pledge. Lemon juice and olive oil in a spray bottle. Smells lemony fresh and really polishes up well.

Have a great tip....I love tips!!! Michelle
