More Frugal Tips

I love learning!  So, in the quest to learn more I asked my readers at MomsFunMoney.com for their frugal tips and suggestions.  Here are some of what they shared.

Dryer Sheets
Cut them in half so you get more for your dollar. 
Buy unscented ones and run them over your hair if you have static in it.

White Vinegar

We have heard for awhile now just all you can do with vinegar.  Here are a few suggsetions: 

Use it to kill weeds

Use as an all purpose cleaner – use 1/4 cup of white vinegar or baking soda in 1 quart of water.  Keep some in a spray bottle for quick clean-up jobs on all types of hard surfaces. You can make up larger batches of these mild, low-cost cleaners and store them in clean, reusable containers. Remember to label containers with their contents

If you use the vinegar water mixture to clean your patio tables and chairs it is supposed to keep the flies away too.

Tenderize meat. Soak in vinegar over night.

Freshen vegetables. Soak wilted vegetables in 2 cups of water and a
tablespoon of vinegar.

Boil better eggs. Add 2 tablespoons water before boiling eggs. Keeps
them from cracking.

Soothe a bee or jellyfish sting. Dot the irritation with vinegar and
relieve itching.

Clean stainless steel. Wipe with a vinegar dampened cloth.

Make your Own Coffee Creamer
2 oz can evaporated milk & 2 tsp vanilla

Blend in a blender until well mixed. Store in airtight jar in the refridgerator for up to a week. Add 2 teaspoons to a cup of coffee.

Make your own Shower Cleaner
Put 4 Tablespoons of  Jet Dry or Cascade Clean Rinse into an empty 32 oz spray bottle and fill with water.
A bottle of Jet Dry will make several batches. So, this ends up being much cheaper than the commercial Clean Shower sprays, and it says it works just as well.

Make your own Febreeze
Add 3 tablespoons of liquid fabric softener to 25 ounces of water in a spray bottle.

Add 3 tablespoons isopropyl rubbing alcohol and it becomes the alergen reducer kind. Also great as a wrinkle reducer spray!

Storage Bags

Rinse bags out and reuse

I hope that you find these tips helpful!
