Great tips, Sarah! I love the hair conditioner for shaving your legs. Great idea!

Great list. I am a huge believer in vinegar. My mother even uses it mixed with water to rinse her hair. I think it is the best window cleaner out there.

I've used the vinegar on paint brushes-totally works. Shaving your legs w/ conditioner-soap works better. I'm trying that shower cleaner.

Jen over at Life Crafts and Whatever, did an awesome post on the Dawn and Vinager Idea. It was titled Scum Killa!!! And I have to say I ran right out and bought the Dawn just to try!! And it worked like a charm. I didn't do a post to about it, cause the husband didn't want blogland seeing our soap scum. Oh well, we don't have it anymore. YAY!!!

 
At February 14, 2012 at 2:43 PM , Blogger Trish - Mom On Timeout said...

So many great ideas! I just recently started using Dawn for cleaning things other than dishes on total accident. My Dad had me mix some with water in a spray bottle when he was working on our car. Well, I had some leftover and started spraying it everywhere and it cleans so well. I am so going to be adding in some vinegar and trying it in my shower now. Thanks for sharing at Taking A Timeout Thursday! Happy Valentine's Day!
