Clean pans

If you have pans with baked on burnt gunk, you can use vinegar and baking soda to help get it off. Just fill the pan with a small layer of water and add about a cup of vinegar. Bring the pan the a simmer, then remove from heat. Add 2 tablespoons of baking soda and let the pan sit until most of the bubbles are gone. Use a scouring pad to remove all of the burnt stains from the pan.

Clean your washing machine

Fill your machine up to full with HOT water. Add about 1 cup of baking soda and let the machine run (don’t put any clothes or anything in). When the machine gets to the rinse cycle, use vinegar in place of liquid fabric softener. Again, let the machine finish running. When the load is finished you will have a nice, clean washing machine.

Get stains off your iron

Make a paste with baking soda and water. Rub the paste all over the iron, being careful of the holes. While the paste sits on the plate of the iron, make a 50/50 mixture of water and vinegar. Add this to your water trough on your iron. Take a wet rag and wipe down the front of your iron.

Once that is clean, run the steam through your iron, until all of the vinegar/water solution is gone. Fill the water through with only water and run through one more steam to make sure you get out any left over vinegar. You iron is now clean inside and out.

Freshen up towels

Simply add about 1/2 cup baking soda in place of your regular laundry detergent. Then add vinegar in place of fabric softener during the rinse cycle. Dry normally and you will notice your towels have a brand new freshness.

Toilette bowl cleaner

Sprinkle about 1/2 cup baking soda into the toilet, the pour about 1/2 cup vinegar over the baking soda. Let the bubbles do their thing for about 10 minutes, then scrub with a toilet brush. You should be left with a clean and deodorized toilet.

Deodorize the outside of your toilette

Make a paste with baking soda and water and rub it around the sides and base of the toilet, including the tile surrounding the toilet. Let this sit for 10-15 minutes and then spray vinegar over the top. Once the bubbles have done their thing, wipe everything up with a clean wet rag.

Dishwasher cleaner

Fill a large measuring cup with 2 cups vinegar and let it sit on the top rack of your dishwasher. Run a complete dishwashing cycle (using hot water). Sprinkle baking soda throughout the bottom of the dishwasher and run the dishwasher again. Your dishwasher should look nice and clean.

Hope all of these tips are helpful!!! 🙂
