Living in the country means sometimes, we have to get creative and make do, with whatever we have on hand to deal with just about anything that crops up. So, for my own sanity, and hopefully to get you out of an occasional pinch, I am going to put all of our household tips and tricks in one place.
My plan is to get my thoughts organized and post them here on Tuesdays. This will make it much easier for us, cause, I am always asking Wranglers, what was that one thing your Grandma used to clean this type of stain? what did my mom tell me to use to ward off the flies? what was that crazy way my sister-in-law cleaned her sink? Anyway, you get the idea.
Here ya go!
- Remove water spots on your stainless steel sink with rubbing alcohol. Our water well has really, really, hard water, and I constantly battle water spots-I use this little trick on the kitchen sink and the bathroom faucets/fixtures. Works like a charm!
- Remove scuffs from shoes by rubbing the scuff with the white side of a banana peel.
- Re-cycle scented dryer sheets by soaking used sheets in liquid fabric softener, squeeze out excess, and let dry. I love this because I can keep a little recycled stash for those times I forget to pick up a box of Bounce!
