Find the miracle products in your home that will clean and save you money.

Hydrogen peroxide has a ton of household uses and is often forgotten or overlooked. Rinsing your mouth with a cap full of peroxide each day will whiten your teeth and kill tons of bacteria. A peroxide mouth rinse can save you the cost of name brand teeth whiteners and mouthwashes.

Did you know that Listerine white strips, oxiclean and various other household items only work because of the peroxide in them? Why buy several different products for different uses that all contain peroxide when you can simply buy some bottles of regular peroxide and get many jobs done?

Putting peroxide in your washing machine will also whiten and disinfect your wash, peroxide will also remove blood and other bodily fluids from your clothes.

Peroxide will add highlights to and lighten your hair, it can also be used in the bath to disinfect and to kill fungus on the skin and obviously it can be used in open wounds to clean and kill bacteria.

White vinegar is a natural disinfectant/ deodorizer and is used to dissolve dirt, soap scum and water deposits. Don’t be afraid to use as a deodorizer. Once the vinegar dries the “vinegary smell” will disappear and leave things fresh and clean. White vinegar can also be used as a fabric softener because it cuts detergent residue, this is especially helpful for those will sensitive skin

Rubbing alcohol is great for cleaning windows because it is clear and it evaporates leaving a clear and clean surface that shines. Combine 1 cup of rubbing alcohol, 1 cup of water and a tablespoon of white vinegar. Also, using newspaper instead of paper towels is another common streak free way to clean windows.

Baking soda can be used to freshen a refrigerator, to scrub rings around the tub and it can be used to remove stains on a variety of surfaces. A baking soda paste will remove sweat stains from clothes. Baking soda is used to clean silver, you can mix 3 parts backings soda with 1 part water or you can simply rub the silver with dry baking soda to remove tarnish.

Next time you take on a cleaning task try to use what you already have on hand and see how well those regular household items work!

    Rubbing alcohol, also, dissolves tree pitch – like when it gets on your hands or clothes.

  • baking soda is cheap and available in every house hold. People don’t realize the value of products that are available at home within their easy reach.

  • I agree with abdominplasty that we don’t realist how useful these things are ,i use newspaper to clean my car’s glasses and it works wonder.You don’t need to any detergent or solvent with that just soak it in water and start rubbing your mirrors or glasses with soaked newspaper.It will remove all the stains and dust and make those glasses more brighter.Similarly other things like screws,vinegar,different cooking spices,etc etc
