Want to know which home-made cleaning products and organizing tricks really work? Here are 5 that I am using this spring to clean my home for the season ahead.
Toilet Paper Rolls for cord organization. I seriously love this one. I am kicking myself for not trying it sooner.
Green Oven Cleaner – 5 tbsp baking soda, 4 tbsp vinegar and a few drops of dish soap. (Dawn works best) rub it in and let it sit for 30 minutes. Then wipe off. A little bit of elbow grease is needed and you will have to wipe with a damp cloth a few times to get the grit off. Unfortunately it doesn’t seem to work on the glass so a scraping razor is needed (like what you’d use on a glass stove top).
Orange Peel All Purpose Cleaner – Fill a jar with orange peels, cover with vinegar Let sit for 2-3 weeks shaking every so often. Strain off orange peels and put liquid gold into a spray bottle. Use in a 2 parts water – 1 part vinegar ration for every day cleaning and disinfecting full strength for the really nasty areas.
Dress up an old photo frame using fabric, ribbons and a hot glue gun to organize barrettes and elastics.
Last but not least is something I haven’t used yet, but I definitely will! Mabel’s Labels Scan and Store labels. What a brilliant idea. I’ll be using them as I stash away the winter gear. Heck I might even pick up some for my cross-country move!
I’d love to hear some of your cleaning or organizing tips.
