Household cleaning tip of the week

I don't know about y'all but I love hearing any household tip that makes my life a bit easier at home. I take great pride and joy in caring for my family by creating a clean and comfy environment. Keeping house has never been an easy chore and I truly appreciate all the advice I can get. I've decided to research household hints and tips and share them with you. This week I'm posting on vinegar. Y'all, vinegar is a powerful thing! I'm only going to list five ways but it's a miracle worker and has thousands of ways to help the average housewife.

5 ways you can clean with vinegar

1.) Fruit flies- You can get rid of those little boogers by setting out a small dish of undiluted vinegar.

2.) Cleans mildew- Wiping down walls, doors, and showers with white distilled vinegar with a cloth or sponge.

3.) Cloudy glassware- Soak a paper towel in full-strength white distilled vinegar and wrap around inside and outside the glass. Wait a few minutes and then rinse with warm soapy water.

4.) Clean refrigerator- Clean the shelves and walls of your fridge with half and half solution of water and white distilled vinegar. Gets the crusties, nasties, and smelly's out of that fridge.

5.) Remove stains from teacups- Scrub gently with equal parts of baking soda and vinegar to remove those pesty stains.

If y'all have any household tips for vinegar please share!!!


  1. Great tips! Thanks!

    My tip sorta goes along with your #5, but I use baking soda for cleaning more than I do baking. Sprinkle some in an old margarine tub and add enough liquid dish soap to make it creamy like frosting. Use it to scrub your sink or whatever. A little bit goes a long way. It's not only economical, it's a green cleaning product!


  2. I'm so trying that out on the mildew. Thanks!

  3. what is that doll? Is it a vintage barbie? I have never seen that hairstyle? I know Barbie isn't invented for me yet, it being only 1955, but just curious.

  4. Yes, it's a vintage Barbie. I collect vintage and Silkstone Barbie. I love them!!!
