The "miracle" of baking soda and peroxide.   Put 1/4 cup of baking soda in a bowl.....add enough peroxide to make a paste.  Rub on with fingers or sponge.  Cleans EVERYTHING!  Stove, oven, pans, stainless steel applicances, even the white handles of the refrig door.

Drain Cleaning

DIY clean drain: Pour cup baking soda and then cup of vinegar. Cover up the drain during the crazy chemical reaction. Wait 15 mins and pour a pot of boiling water. It totally clears up the clogged drain caused by my long hair.

(great to remember for move-out or in) Place a dishwasher-safe cup filled with plain white vinegar on the top rack of the dishwasher. Using the hottest water available, run the dishwasher through a cycle. The vinegar will help to wash away the loose, greasy grime, sanitizes, and helps remove the musty odor. Next, sprinkle a cupful of baking soda around the bottom of the tub and run it through a short cycle. The baking soda will help freshen and removing stains.... good to do every 6 mths
