Vinegar works as an itch reliever as well.

Vinegar 10%, hot water 90% and a squeegee works great for me on the windows. Get a good squeegee though, the cheap ones just aren't worth it.

Another remedy

I use Mayonaise on my good Oak furniture, for sealing cracks or abuse.
I once set a live tree on a good table>>>>Later a large spot.
Used mayon...and it disappeared.. Rub it in good.

Thanks for reading.

Witch Hazel is a good astringent and helps with itching.

Dip your toothbrush in peroxide and brush to help whiten teeth.

To clear doggie "smells" off of hard flooring(vinyl, hardwoods, etc) use a rag wet with vinegar.

Peroxide also takes blood out of white clothes.

Tobacco wet and put on a sting will reduce swelling and take away some of the pain.

Put Vanilla extract on a burn- it takes the "burn" out.

Hey everyone, thanks for your recipes!

I've used liquid blue-ing for glass and mirrors, as well as rubbing alchohol. Either work great.

I used peroxide for cleaning toilets, vinegar and water for all surface cleaning.

Thanks for sharing the mayonaise trick Dodge... and vanilla for burns is a new one too, thanks Tonya.

I'll try the one with liquid joy and essential oil... lets see what goes good with lemon?

Anyone know a good rust or hard water stain remover that's natural?

White vinegar is great for alot of stuff. If your shower head is cloggy and doesn't spray right anymore, just fill a gallon sized zip lock bag with enough vinegar to cover the nozzle of the head and tie the bag to the head for a couple of hours. The head will spray like its brand new! I also spray our shower with vinegar to get rid of the soap scum.

Mayo take away water spots from wood. It also will dissolve adhesives.
