Have you dropped an egg lately? To pick it up easily coat with table salt and let sit for several minutes. Once it solidifies, pick it up with paper towelling.
To keep drains open and keep them fresh follow this simple trick when you clean the room.
Run hot water down the drain for 3 minutes. Pour 1/3 cup baking soda down the drain, being careful to make sure it goes down. Slowly pour 1/3 cup white vinegar. Let it foam for a few seconds to saturate all Baking soda. Close off the drain with a stopper and leave it for 10-15 minutes. Remove stopper and pour hot water down the drain for a few minutes. You should be able to tell if you need to do it again. I’ve never had to do this more than twice to clear a drain. **Word of Warning: Do not use this in any drain that contains a garbage disposal. The Soda/vinegar will rot the seals.***
Next time you peel an avocado, make sure to save the skin. Run the ends of your hair through the skin to get all that yummy leftover oils on your hair. Let sit for 1/2 hour then shampoo as usual.
Rust stains on cement? Pour undiluted lemon juice on the stain. Let sit for 10 minutes, use a scrub brush to lift away the remainder of the rust.
Never use fabric softener on towels use white vinegar instead. It helps to cut the soap left on the towels from your shower and they feel fluffy and very soft.
Don’t throw away your used lemons and limes, run them through your garbage disposal to freshen and cut the crud. Mix the used citrus and ice and pack your disposal. Run till it sounds empty.
The best way to clean your venetion blinds is to bring them outside and lay them on a large clean towel or blanket. Do not use your favorite things because they will probably get ruined. Open the actual blind all of the way and keep the individual blinds closed. Have a bucket nearby full of soap and water. Usually windex or Tide works the best. Then clean the blinds by scrubbing them with a soft bristle broom. After the front is finished, reverse the blinds so that the back side is now on the front. Scrub the blinds completely. Then get your hose and rinse the soap off of the blinds. Hang the blinds over something to rinse and then to dry off. If you do not want to take a chance and see spots, then you can hand dry each individual blind.
