I've been meaning to start this thread for weeks but haven't got around to it...
But here it is... What do you DIY around your home that other women & mothers could benefit from knowing? (If they're not already aware of them!)
1- if you've got stuff burnt on the bottom of a saucepan, use a bicarb soda paste to scrub the bottom of the saucepan.
2- add some bicarb soda to your washing for extra cleaning power.
3- to remove body odour from DH/DP's clothes, spray/soak them in vinegar for a little while (I do for 30 mins) and then wash as normal.
4- if you have left over lemons, take the rind and boil in 4 cups of water. Once cooled add 6 tablespoons of vinegar & 3 teaspoons of borax. Mix well and put into a empty spray bottle (or 2) and you have a nice citrus scented spray & wipe.
Then juice the lemons, and pour into a ice cube tray & freeze. You can empty the cubes into a ziplock bag after frozen if you need the tray for other ice. Then when you need fresh lemon juice just defrost as many cubes as you need. (I also do this with tomato paste as I never use a full jar within 30 days).
I'd love to hear other tried & true tips to use what is already around the home to waste less & save more money!
