Fabulous Tip Friday!

Well, the mommies over at Mommies United had another GREAT idea! Everyone share a Fabulous Tip that makes your life easier! Well, who couldn't use a few extra ideas like that!!!

My tips are reuses for a few items that have already been used once and would be going into the trash (or recycling bin). These have the potential to save you time and money!
  1. Used Dryer Sheets (any brand) - after your clothes are dry, when you remove the dryer sheet from the dryer, instead of throwing it away, take it to your shower. (what!?!?). If you get it wet it will make a soapy like foam that you can rub on your glass shower door or on your shower tiles and it will clean them! I like it because you can clean the door while you are in the shower and you won't get your hands yucky with a 'bleach' like smell!
  2. Old Newspaper - Use old newspapers to wash your windows along with your favorite window cleaner instead of using a roll of paper towels. They work great, don't leave any streaks, and don't cost you anything! And, if your house is anything like mine and you have "helpers", then you will definitely save tons of paper towels!
  3. WD-40 - If you are like us, you bought a can of WD-40 years ago to make a chair or a door stop squeaking and then you put it in your garage. Well, if your children bring home a silly putty egg this Easter, you will be prepared when it gets 'permanently' stuck to fabric or carpet. Just spray on WD-40 and wipe away with a clean cloth!

Happy Cleaning! For more Fabulous Tip Friday participants....click HERE.

I'll have to tell my husband about using dryer sheets to clean the shower. That seems to have become his job.

When I saw that you linked to my Kids Love Jesus site, I knew that I had to get caught up on posts. Thanks for the motivation. I'll try to stay on top of it now.
