Got Grease Stains? Have you ever cooked and grease splattered all over your clothing? Have you ever spilled baby oil on a pair of jeans or your favorite shirt? I’m pretty sure we all have had some kind of spill with any type of oil… Well, Baby Powder does the trick everytime! I have been doing this for about 6 years and I haven’t been disappointed! Once you have the spill or if it has set for sometime, just sprinkle on the powder covering the spot completely… Let it set and wash. Stain is all gone!
This is NOT my idea but I use it and love it. With this economy and me being a stay at home mom, I look for any way to save money. I bought some liquid fabric softener, poured it into a large container and added water. 2 parts water, 1 part softener. I then bought some cheap sponges (minus the brillo on it) and cut them in half. When I’m ready to dry my clothes, I grab a sponge, dip it in the softener, wring it out and put it in the dryer. A CHEAP FABRIC SOFTENER!
If you have permanent marker on your walls believe it or not, use a dry erase marker to take it off. You use the dry erase marker to write on top of the permanent marker and wipe off.
My husband and food and fabric allergies and with our newborn son, we are realizing that he takes after Daddy. So, instead of paying the high price of baby detergents, my mother in-law passed on some advice of using white vinegar instead. It works great, it’s cheap and your clothes don’t even smell like the vinegar itself! It also helps preserve the color in your clothes!
I keep swiffer dusters in my van… i have a full time demanding job along with 3 kids and household to clean up… so when i’m sitting at a stop light or have a few minutes, I find it to be the perfect quick pick up for all the dust
It also does great to clean the vents out. I live in Kansas where there is dirt everwhere!! Especially in the summer and the high winds
My favorite cleaning tool is the magic eraser…….greatest thing, can use it in every room of the house and with coupons, they don’t cost a fortune. I like the fact that I don’t spray harsh chemicals for me or my “little buddies” in the air…a great tool and a must have for all moms. It takes permanent marker, crayon, soap scum, etc. off of surfaces. If you have a stain, try it. It will surprise you.
