When I moved into my Jersey City apartment my Grandma gave me some of her cookie sheets as a gift. Two years and many batches of cookies later these sheets have seen better days! I decided I should share my trick to get them looking brand new! (almost)
Grout is a major pain, especially when it's old and grimy. Today you'll learn how to clean grout and make it look new again. Plus we share which grouts to use if you decide to re-grout your bathroom floor or if you just installed new tile. The tips you'll learn will be priceless.
Showerheads can get dirty with mineral deposits over time, but you can get them clean and fresh again with a simple homemade remedy. By putting some vinegar in a baggie and fastening it over your showerhead (and then being patient for an hour or two!) you can get those crusty showerheads looking like new again. I used this method and was really happy with the results.
Although some would think a handheld showerhead should be reserved for a master bath, I decided to install one in my girls bathroom. Not only would it be convenient for them, this showerhead also has a water conserving nature. I am going to show you how to install this fabulous showerhead by Brizo and I have included a helpful video to guide you along the way.
Homemade Fabric Softener? Why not! I started making my own DIY Laundry Soap, click here for recipe. about five years ago and I haven't looked back since then. Making your own laundry supplies is so much cheaper than the store bought variety. For instance, I made this big batch of softener for less than $3. You can't go wrong there!
I'm always looking for great eco cleaning products that are cheap, easy to use, and non toxic, and this homemade cleaner is the best furniture polish I have ever used. It's made out of liquid (fractionated) coconut oil and lemon juice.

I love my cats, but when they started scratching my new couch and one of them started urinating on an area of our carpet, I had to find a solution. I wanted to be sure that it was safe for them, so I did a ton of research and came up with this all natural, chemical free cat deterrent spray. It smells great and works like a charm. My cats don't seem upset, they just avoid the area where I spray it!
We use our silverware every single day, and I’m assuming you probably do, too. But is it really as clean as you think it is? Sure, you pop them in the dishwasher after eating and you use the best dishwashing detergent money can buy. Good enough, right?Nope.
I’m all about green cleaning ideas and homemade cleaning products. So when I found this recipe for a carpet freshener I thought, "let’s give it a try." We just got a second dog ( a cute puppy that has stolen our heats), and all our carpets could use a little freshening up. I was a little skeptical about this at first, but two days after I used it, a neighbor stopped by and took a deep breath and then asked me what yummy thing I was baking. She was so surprised when I told her it was my new carpet freshener. It definitely covered up the pet smells. Here’s the recipe:
Winter time is the time where you're slathering on lotion and washing your hands more frequently to prevent the flu, but one thing I notice that starts to happen is that my rings start getting gunked up with soap scum and excess lotion build up. Rather than stop by my jeweler every other week, I created my own DIY Jewelry Cleaner to help do the job...with one unexpected twist at the end using my FAVORITE tool to completely sanitize my ring and make it 99% germ free!
