Learn To Love Vinegar
Tip: Use vinegar as a multipurpose house cleaner.
"I use lots of vinegar! For cleaning windows, put it in bath water (it's good for the skin!) to help with soap buildup, in the rinse cycle for laundry to eliminate fabric softener, a very small amount in the cat's water to keep fleas away, and also use it instead of Jet Dry in the dishwasher -- it leaves no streaks! I have a 2-year-old in the house who puts everything in his mouth, this way he can’t get sick from soaps or cleaners. You only need on gallone bottle a month to do all these things; it creates less waste and can be recycled!"
