Using Cleaning Supplies for Other Common Household Tasks

All of us have had time in our lives when we were in a bind and used our creativity to get us out of a bad situation. Let’s be honest, the more tricks you have up your sleeve to get things done around the house, the better. Here are a few hacks to use for cleaning supplies so you can get your money’s worth out of them. 

Dish Soap Is a Double Agent 

It really is when you think about it. The same stuff that works on your plates and pans can be used to get grease off of concrete garage floors so you oil spills are no more. Some people actually combine a tablespoon of it with a gallon of white vinegar and a cup of salt to kill sidewalk weeds that never seem to die. Or if you don’t want to spend money on ice packs, you can also freeze the liquid in a bag for a makeshift ice pack which will last. 

Window Washing Fluid In the House 

Got a few ants or spiders who have chosen to make your home their own? Try using window washing fluid to soak them up and disinfect the areas where they live. You can actually use this as a stain eliminator too if you spill some food on the couch before it sets. 

The Kitchen and The Bathroom 

Oven cleaner can actually work on a bathtub to get the stains out and leave your tub clean again. Just ensure you only use it on the white, porcelain kinds!
