Tips for Tuesday

.....Clean and deodorize a drain by pouring 1 cup baking soda, then 1 cup hot vinegar (your microwave is perfect for heating the vinegar) Let this sit for 5 minutes or so, then run hot water down the drain. This same process (cutting the amount to 1/2 cup baking soda and 1/2 hot vinegar) will also clean and deodorize the garbage disposal.

.....Or try vinegar ice cubes to deodorize and clean the garbage disposal. Make them by freezing vinegar in a ice cube try. Run several cubes down the disposal while flushing with cold water. As the vinegar freezes it will deordorize the freezer as well.

.....Clean the microwave oven by mixing 1/2 cup vinegar and 1/2 of water in a microwave-safe bowl and bringing it to a rolling boil so the inside streams up. Bake-on food will be loosened. Wipe clean. Odors will disappear too.
