Yes, or run it through the dishwasher if you have one. The high temps and caustic dishwasher detergent are great at killing bacteria.

Personally, I use dishrags....I use a fresh one each day and toss them in the laundry. Just seems cleaner...

Do you have a bunch of little ketchup or mustard (any kind of condiments will do) packets lying around in your junk drawer? Throw them in the freezer! They make great ice packs for tiny wounds, and you can refreeze them too.

Freezer jam,

You can make leftover strawberries/blueberries/anything etc into jams with 20 minutes of work.

Look up freezer jam recipes, so easy and no canning stuff required.

I have stainless steel sinks in the kitchen, and wonderful Florida hardwater which of course causes unsightly mineral deposits on the stainless. The deposits are super easy to clean up and/or keep at bay by saturating a rag in white vinegar and laying it on the stain for an hour or so. Actually, I use paper towels because I can make it whatever length I need for wrapping around the base of the faucet or along curves.

This also works in the toilet, but it's best to clean and flush it first and then turn off the water to the toilet so that none can flow back into the bowl. Then wrap a vinegar soaked paper towel or old rag around water line and allow to sit for an hour or so. The area may need a light scrubbing afterwards or soak for a longer time depending on individual circumstances. Make sure not to flush the paper towel or rag accidently.

Wobbly toilet seat! A quick fix for a wobbly toilet seat can be had easy enough using a quarter size circle cut from an old inner tube. Cut a small slit in the center of the circle then place it onto the plastic post on the underside of the toilet and then screw the plastic nut back on until snug. This will last for a very long time. Of course you can always go buy a rubber washer but they don't seem to work as well for this particular fix.

You can also make rubber bands, otherwise known as Ranger Bands from the old inner tubes, so it pays to save one or two old tubes.

Default cleaning tips etc

A little off house cleaning but a great tip. Keep a tube of toothpaste (must be white like colgate) and if your dog gets sprayed by a skunk wash it with the toothpaste that will foam up like soap. It is cheap and very handy to keep in case. Then wash the dog as you normally would. Works better than skunk off. We use to use it in the animal clinic, works great.

A bit of dawn dish soap will strip your hair clean and with bleach it cleans your kitchen back to fresh..

Ivory dish soap kills fleas on contact.

Ahhh COLETTE, alas, I am not a PETA person. I am against circus animals and I think there should be more inspection of our farm animal care and slaughter. I have fur and leather, I eat meat daily and drink dairy products. Have done a lot of fishing and hunting in my early years. I am afraid PETA would kick my butt out the door LOL.

When I was little, I clearly hung around with the wrong crowds because I kept getting lice. Of course, butt length super thick hair didn't help either. After suffering through those chemical and comb treatments over and over and over again, (and my mom chopping all of my hair off a couple of times....I will never forgive her version of the Beatles bowl cut. Never!) I found if washed my hair normally and then 'washed' it with a tub of regular, cheap mayo then wrapped my mayo covered hair tightly in plastic for a couple of hours before washing it again....may take a couple of washes as that stuff really clings...it worked the same as the painful, smelly treatments. I mean, mayo smells but I'd rather smell like macaroni salad than a chemical processing plant.

The mayo suffocates anything living on your scalp and hair and washing it out thoroughly washes them away with it.

I will recommend this process as well! I went round and round with that when I had foster kids. I thought, let's suffocate them! Mayo is also a great conditioner.

Very true! Better to feed my follicles than to wind up on my hips, I say.

Apple Cider Vinegar!

I have recently used this to gargle with while I had a sore throat. (Which was GONE by the next day)

But where I spit out the vinegar/hot water mix.... the bathroom sink drain was extremely shiny and clean.

I have used vinegar to clean always but the apple cider.... is vinegar to the power of 10. .

Hydrogen peroxide with baking soda mix. You can use it on sinks as well as a tooth cleaning agent. I use it on my teeth mainly as a paste then brush after with a regular toothpaste.

I use the dishwasher to sanitize keys on a key ring holder (minus the fob key, that's the gizmo that either unlocks your car doors or acts as an remote starter) and tooth brushes, on a weekly basis. I do the keys separately from dishes, using a regular dishwashing tablet.

But when I sanitize the tooth brush or my hair combs or brushes (make sure you remove hair from the bush and comb), I still use the dishwashing tablet, but during the final rinse cycle, I add a splash of White Vinegar, so it totally neutralizes microbes that might still exist.

I don't use the White Vinegar for treating the keys, though. Not sure why, but if I want to be doubly sure the keys are germ free, I use a cotton ball soaked with Isopropyl Alcohol.


It's just one way to limit bacteria or microbes from living on common surface items we use everyday. Especially if flu or cold season is active or for any other reason, it's just a good idea to have clean keys and tooth brushes.
