Clean ceiling fans without the mess
Trying to dust your ceiling fans is an awful chore. Not only do you end up with a face full of fuzz, but if you use a spray, be careful not to open your mouth! Here’s an awesome idea using a pillow case. Just place it onto a blade and slide to keep the dust contained.
Fruit flies be gone
Do you have a problem with fruit flies in the kitchen? No worries. Just place several pieces of citrus in the oven with the door ajar, and leave it overnight. The next morning, close the door and put the broiler on. Once it cools, refer back to the oven cleaning steps immediately!

If that shower stream just wont cut it
After time, you may find that your showerhead is so clogged up with mineral deposits – that it needs a serious cleaning. Forget the chemicals! Here are two different ideas on how to get them back into working order using simple ingredients.
Don’t pour chemicals (or your money) down the drain
Drain cleaning products can be extremely dangerous to leave around the house, especially if there are kids around. A mixture of baking soda and vinegar is not only effective, but safer and cheaper as well. Get the details from Mom 4 Real!
Sprinkle some soda for freshness
When your carpet isn’t smelling very delightful, it can make your home unpleasant to be in. Fortunately, this is an easy issue to solve! Mix 10 drops of peppermint essential oil with one cup of baking soda. Sift it onto the carpet, let sit, then finally vacuum it up.
No more dishwasher drama
Those dishwasher detergent packets at the store may be convenient, but they are also toxic and expensive. Did you know that you can actually make your own? This one blogger is in love with this recipe, which creates these cute tablets for next to nothing!
When you want a last minute shine
Wax paper is a great tool to keep in the kitchen, and not just for your baked goodies. It can get your faucet shiny, and even help prevent water spots. Sweet!
Wow, we pretty much completed a whole chore list without using a single chemically-filled product. Now THAT is the smell of a clean house!
