Homemade Cleaners Continued...

Here are a few more tried-and-true cleaners, courtesy of a Taste of Home magazine insert:

Carpet Freshener: Mix baking soda with cinnamon and sprinkle on carpets. Wait 15 minutes, then vacuum. (I have tried this and it works great!)

Mirror Cleaner: Clean with canned shaving cream (not gel) for a streak-free finish.

Scuff Mark Cleaner: Apply toothpaste to an old toothbrush. Scrub, then wipe clean with a cloth. (We also use a pencil eraser at our house for black scuff marks.)

Shower Door Cleaner (For Glass Doors): Clean doors thoroughly. Then wipe with baby oil on a soft cloth. The oil will prevent soap scum and hard water spots for months! (I have done this and can attest to it...it keeps them clean forever!)

  1. Hope...you have saved me from sure insanity with the shower door tip. I detest our shower doors because I can NEVER keep them clean. I love you now.
