2. Make Scouring Powder-For soap scum on tubs and showers,with 2 parts baking soda, 1 part salt, and 1 part borax. It will cut through even the toughest scum!
3. Clean the Dishwasher-To clean your dishwasher effortlessly, fill a dishwasher safe bowl or jar with 2 cups of vinegar and set on the top rack of the dishwasher. I used a small glass Pyrex container. Run through on a hot cycle with no other dishes in the dishwasher to clean and remove the musty odor.
4. Clean the Garbage Disposal-Cut a lemon in half, shove in garbage disposal and grind (with water running) for 10 seconds.
5. Natural Air Freshener-In a medium saucepan, simmer a quart of water with natural ingredients to freshen and clean the air. Just make sure not to let the water evaporate off completely! My favorite combinations are: 1 sliced lemon, 2 tablespoons rosemary and a dash of vanilla 1 sliced lime and 1 piece chopped ginger root 1 sliced orange, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and a dash of nutmeg and cloves (smells like pumpkin pie!) 1 sliced lime and 2 tablespoons thyme
