A few months ago my sister found this trick that is amazing for taking out stains, and I thought I should share it with all of you!

All that you do is mix original Dawn dishsoap with shampoo! (half and half) I just used it on my boyfriend's sweater to get out grease, and it worked! It's taken out red Crystal Light and tomato sauce as well.

Another thing I do is if my shoes smell, cover the insides with pure baking soda and let it sit for 2 days. After that, dump out all the baking soda and the smell is gone!


Anyone else have home remedies they would like to share?

deodorant stains on May 16, 2010 @ 02:39 pm

when ever i wear dark tops i always manage to get white marks on it from my deodorant, an easy way to get ride of them is to use a nylon and just rub the area a bit and it's all gone :)

For deodorant stains (if you don't have a any nylons available) just take an old dryer sheet that has already been in the cycle and just rub it on the marks. Comes right off!

For pen marks on white shirts you just spray a little hairspray on the ink and put it through the wash.

To keep the dye from coming out of your dark wash jean just put them in a dark load wash cycle with a bit of white vinegar and it'll keep your jeans dark and no dye leakage.

Question on May 17, 2010 @ 08:45 pm

Can't think of any home remedies right now but I have a question.

Baking Soda-After opening the box do I need to store it in the fridge or can I leave it out...? Just got one to exfoliate my face.

Hairspray on May 18, 2010 @ 11:10 am

Hairspray eh? Wow if that works, you are my hero! I put pen all over my clothes accidently all the time haha.


Jovanna:

As far as I know, you can do both. I don't think it needs to be refrigerated, because people (me including) put it in cupboards and drawers to keep it from smelling like food items, feet, etc.

Lemon on May 21, 2010 @ 11:27 pm

For scars or dark marks, rub lemon juice. It stings a bit, but it works.

inner thigh burns on May 22, 2010 @ 03:24 pm

If you ever wear skirts or shorts your thighs may start to rub together and sometimes due to moisture it can be painful. In order to prevent this put some baby power on your inner thighs to absorb the moisture, make sure you rub it in so that you don't see any white marks...

Does it matter what kind of shampoo?

Inner thigh on May 26, 2010 @ 11:31 am

I've never had that problem with inner thighs rubbing together and I wear skirts all the time, but if it ever happens I'll keep that in mind!


Kyramina:
As far as picking the kind of shampoo, it really does not matter what kind. :)
