Vinegar is an incredibly powerful liquid. There are almost endless health benefits by using it both inside and outside your body (recipe here, here and here. ) You probably also know it can be used as a replacement for most cleaning solutions and detergents, and because it is so good for your health, it has almost no dangerous side effects. If anything, using vinegar as your
goto cleaner can only improve the health of you and your family.
Adding citrus to a vinegar cleaner not only adds a pleasant smell, but it increases the cleaning power. Like many toxic cleaners, citrus helps it cut through grease, destroy molds and bacterias that may be hiding in your house and more. There are recipes out there for mixing vinegar with essential oils to get the same thing, but there's something nice about making it yourself that we just love at our house.
Here is the recipe:1. Fill a one quart mason jar with citrus peels.
2. Cover peels with white vinegar, place lid on jar, shake and allow to sit for 2-3 weeks.
3. Strain the citrus peels out of the vinegar.
4. Mix the vinegar solution and water in a spray bottle. (You can mix it in a 1:1, 1:2 or 1:3 solution depending on how strong you want your solution)

I got this big, beat up, smelly dresser off of craigslist. I cleaned it up, painted it with aqua DIY chalkpaint, distressed it, repainted the hardware and coated it in AS clear wax. A couple bought it for their master bedroom.

Go to Lowe's or Home Depot and get 4x8 foam insulation. Cut it into interesting shapes or
leave in panels. Cover with whatever you like, fabric, wallpaper, sheets, etc. You can add molding or ??? and create a huge impact. Attach with command strips and you have sound proofing, insulation, and decor possibilities. Foam insulation sheets are relatively inexpensive, under $10. The sky is the limit. You could just paint them...
