My 7 Favorite ThriftyFun Tips

I want to share my seven favorite - all tried out tips. These are my favorite tips that were posted that I tried and really are effective!

  1. Using a thin latex glove to run over fabric to collect pet hair very quickly and easily! Worked great.
  2. Put a bit of honey in your shampoo. I did this last night, and apparently honey has something in it that makes your hair moist and soft. As a matter of fact I forgot to use conditioner and my hair came out great!
  3. Put a laundry basket in your trunk to load and unload groceries by picking up the whole basket in 1 trip, to carry into the house, and keeps bags of food from sliding around in your car.
  4. (Weird, but it worked) Use warm water and cornmeal and a soft cloth to wash mirrors. The real tip was to use cornstarch and I confused it and used cornmeal, the mirrors on my closet bedroom doors have never been so clean and dust and streak free. So my boo boo paid off anyway. There was no grittiness or scratches, I dried it all off with a soft cloth. {Buy some cloth diapers and they will last for years, great to have on hand.}
  5. I loved the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. I had mark and ground in stuff and on my linoleum floors that nothing would ever clean it. This eraser did it quickly and got it all up!
  6. Slice of bread to pick up tiny broken glass slivers off the floor.
  7. Toss a dry bath towel in with your wet load in the dryer to reduce drying time and energy!

My 7 Favorite ThriftyFun Tips

My favorite tips:

Use your blow dryer on your bathroom mirror when it fogs up; the heat will help clear it.

When baking a chocolate cake from a mix and you need to grease and flour a pan; use some of the cake mix instead of flour and you won't have white flour on your chocolate cake.

For fresh laundry, use white vinegar in your rinse cycle. This was especially helpful for the "stinky towel" issue.

For underarm odor, use a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol to clean the underarm area, let dry, then apply deodorant. I have suffered with underarm odor since adolescence and I have finally found a cure!
