Do-It-Yourself: Tile Grout Cleaner

If you’ve had trouble keeping your tile grout clean, you’ll definitely want to try this cleaning solution.

Tile Grout Cleaner
1 3/4 cup water
2 Tbsp baking soda
1 Tbsp + 1 tsp ammonia
1 Tbsp vinegar
Spray bottle

Directions:
Mix the ingredients in a spray bottle and shake well. Spray the grout generously and let the solution absorb into the grout. Using a scrub or tile brush, scrub the grout vigorously where you sprayed. Use a clean damp rag to wipe each line of grout right after you scrub to pick up the dirty liquid. Keep a bucket of warm water nearby to continuously clean the rag. Mop the floor when you’re done to remove the baking soda residue that may be left behind.

Do It Yourself: How to Make a Pre-Wash Stain Remover Spray

Last month while I was visiting my sister-in-law, my 4-month old had a “blowout.” I asked my sister-in-law if she had a stain remover I could spray on the clothes. She mentioned that she had a homemade pre-wash stain remover that did a great job of getting stains out. I tried it, and it worked better than the store-bought stain removers! And it’s so simple to put together.

Homemade Pre-Wash Stain Remover
1/3 part Tide (can substitute a liquid detergent you have)
1/3 part Ammonia
1/3 part Water

Place the three ingredients in a spray bottle and label. Apply to a difficult stain as soon as it is made and let sit for about 10 minutes before the article is laundered.

And here’s another simple pre-wash stain remover with ingredients you probably have around your house.

Homemade Pre-Wash Stain Remover#2
Two parts ammonia
Two parts white vinegar
One part baking soda
Five parts water

Do you have a homemade pre-wash stain remover that has worked for you, please share it with us.

Do-It-Yourself: Make Your Own Dryer Sheets

dryer sheets

I’m always looking for ways to save money, and my sister-in-law told me about making your own dryer sheets, so I looked it up. It’s so easy to do, and it saves money in the long run.

What you need:
Liquid fabric softener
Old hand towels or face cloths

1. Soak an old towel or face cloth in liquid fabric softener or you could pour 1 cup of liquid fabric softener on the towel.
2. Let it dry.
3. Toss it in the dryer with your clothes. You can use it about 12 times before you need to re-soak it.

It’s recommended to have at least three of these homemade dryer sheets on hand so you don’t have to search through your dry clothes to find it for your next dryer load.

Thanks, Fake It Frugal.
