I am always getting ink on my clothes  and have never had much success in getting it out.

Here is a new tip that I just found that sounds like it might work:

Put glycerin on the spot  (also good for making soap bubbles….which is why I have it) with a mild detergent and a tiny amount of water. Rub gently to form suds and then  rinse.

Floor Cleaning Recipe – Shine your Floors the Natural Way

Posted on February 19, 2012. Filed under: Household Tips, Safe Cleansers |

Olive Oil and Vinegar

Prolonged used of industrial shining products that contain wax will cause residue build up that traps dirt.

At Sponge & Sparkle, we love cleaning products that are natural and frugal. To make your linoleum or tile floors shine the natural way, use the following recipe which contains ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen:

  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 cup of vinegar
  • 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil

Apply directly to clean floors using a spray bottle. Clean with a dry mop or towel.

This recipe should not be used on wood floors.
