Household Cleaner Recipes:

Homemade Febreze
4 tablespoons Ultra Downy Clean Breeze fabric softener
25 oz. water
Mix and dispense from a 32 oz. spray bottle.

Homemade Soft Scrub
1/4 cup borax
Vegetable-oil based liquid soap
1/2 teaspoon lemon oil
In a small bowl, mix the borax with enough soap to form a creamy paste.
Add the lemon oil and blend well. Scoop a small amount of the mixture
onto a sponge, wash the surface, and rinse well.

Drain Cleaner
To unclog a drain, mix a cup of salt with a cup of baking soda.
Pour the dry solution into the drain, and then add a pot of boiling water.

Glass Cleaner
Try cleaning glass or mirrors with club soda. The sodium citrite is the key ingredient.
Cleaning Stove Drip Pans and Rings
Take a large kettle, pot or roasting pan and fill with water. Bring to a boil.
Add a cup of Cascade dishwasher detergent, stir until powder dissolves.
Using tongs place the drip pans and rings in the pot of hot water.
Boil for 5 to 10 minutes. Turn off heat, cover with lid and let sit overnight.
In the morning remove the drip pans and element rings
and scrub in a sink full of hot, soapy water.
The caked on crud should remove easily.
