Frugal Cleaning Tips

The Sock Monster

We have all had it happen. The Sock Monster always seems to steal a sock leaving only one behind.

Don't throw out that single sock use it as a rag for polishing wood, polishing shoes, dusting and a cleaning rag.

Never throw out old Toothbrushes

Old Toothbrushes are a great cleaning tool.  In the above picture, I took wire hanger and duct taped to the handle of an old toothbrush. I use this to clean out the built up lint inside the lint filter of my dryer. It prevents lint buildup and fire.

  • Clean tracts on shower doors
  • Clean behind the faucet of your kitchen sink
  • Clean tracts on window sills
  • Clean the hard to reach corners of baseboards
  • Clean the blades of your blender or food processor
  • Use it as a paint brush to make "flick" spatters
  • Polish between the shoe and the sole
Baking Soda and Vinegar

White vinegar is one of the best antiseptics that is natural, cheap and not harmful to plumbing. 

Pour some baking soda into your sink drain and then pour white vinegar on top of the baking soda.  The chemical reaction will start to bubble and scrub your sink drain cleaning and refreshing it.  

If you have a garbage disposal do this trick. In an ice cube tray freeze cubes of vinegar.  Turn on your garbage disposal and place a couple of the frozen vinegar cubes in your drain. The frozen vinegar will break up any grease that is left in your drain and will make your drain smell fresh. 

Simple, cheap and frugal ways to clean around your home.
