Save a little money, stress and time with some tips for your home:
Use salt to help remove burned-on food from pans. Just sprinkle about 1/2 cup salt and add 3 cups water to the pan (first remove any loose food). Then boil on stove for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Cover pan and let sit overnight. In the morning, scrape off loose food and wash as usual!
Remove candle wax from furniture by placing a baggie with ice on the drips. When the wax gets brittle, gently scrape off with a credit card. Polish gently if any residue remains.
Get pet hair out of carpet easily by wearing a rubber glove on your hand and running it over the carpet. Hairs will cling to the glove instantly.
Freshen carpets and rooms by sprinkling baking soda on your carpet. Wait an hour, then vacuum.
Got a sticky stain laundry problem? Just spray a little hairspray on the stain before washing. The rubbing alcohol in the spray breaks down the stickiness, making the stain easier to get out.
Save money by stretching that shampoo. Since most shampoos contain more detergents than your hair needs (and can dry your hair out), make two bottles out of one: Next time your bottle of shampoo is finished, don't toss it-save it. When you buy a new bottle, pour half into the old bottle, and fill the other half with water. Do the same with the other bottle. Diluting your shampoo is healthier for your hair and your wallet!
Exfoliate your skin with baking soda and save money by not buying expensive products at the store. Baking soda has a neutral pH level, so you don't have to worry about it drying your skin. Just mix some with enough water to make a paste. Lightly massage into your skin, rinse and feel softer skin!
