Oven Racks

You know when you go to clean your oven, especially the self clean oven, and you go to put your racks back in, and they are a little laggy and stiff??? Well, if you put a little olive oil on paper towel, and rub each end with the oil, slide them back in the oven. They glide right back in! Voila!!

Balance booster

While you brush your teeth, alternate standing on one leg as you switch mouth quadrants (every 30 seconds). Balancing develops your core muscles and may even be good for your brain. Burns 10

make your own

I recycle the foaming soap dispensers from bath and body works. I use dr. bronner's castille soap in the old soap dispenser (THE FOAMING TYPE OF DISPENSER) and I dilute the soap with mostly water.... say 1 part soap and six parts water. This is a very economical soap and smells great.

Green Cleaning

I use white vinager to clean just about everything. I keep a spray bottle with 1/2 vinager and 1/2 water. I use it to wash windows, floors, bathrooms, laundry, and carpet stains. it is a great sanitizer and deodorizer. the vinager smell will go away. Baking soda and vinager help clean drains.

Clean Windows

Using just warm water and a cloth will clean your windows so much better and greener than the spray glass cleaner.

Freezing Foods

When I make soups and spaghetti sauce and Chili I make extra and freeze them in freezer bags. After they are frozen you can stand them up or leave them lying down. I also do this with fruit when it is on sale. I can have fruit year round. emoticon

Cleaning Is an Exercise Adventure

The best way to clean to mix it up. Use the step stool and instead of a bucket of water, go up and down the steps to rinse a dirty cloth. Don' t be afraid to get on your hands and knees and stretch to the back of the cupboard. Reach for the stars and get any stray cobwebs too! Enjoy the result.
