Restore your dishwasher
Over time, excess food and grime will build up in your dishwasher's interior. Get in the habit of cleaning any remaining bits of foods — beans, pasta, and so on — after each dishwashing cycle. Pull out the bottom rack to look for any leftover food and remove it with a paper towel to prevent future odors.
Clear a slow drain
When you notice your drain is starting to clog, pour a 1/2 cup of baking soda down it, followed by a 1/2 cup of vinegar. Cover with a wet cloth to contain the science fair-like effects. Wait five minutes and then flush with hot water.
How to Wash Pillows
As always, you should check the washing instructions on the pillow's tag, but here is an easy way to keep your pillows fresh if you can!
Remove pillow covers or pillowcases and wash according to the care tag. If you cut off the care tag, stick the pillowcases and covers in the washing machine, select the normal or casual cycle, and use hot water. Add detergent.
To get rid of dust or dirt on the pillow, vacuum both sides, or tumble in the dryer on the no-heat or air-only cycle for 20 minutes.
Spot clean any soiled areas with a cloth dipped in a mild sudsy soap solution. Lightly rinse with a damp cloth. (FYI, wet foam tears easily, so be gentle with the water and soap solution.)
Allow the pillow to air dry completely before putting it back on the bed or couch.
Freshen up your microwave
Make caked-on grime easier to wipe off by heating a cup of water, several tablespoons of vinegar and a chopped-up lemon on high until the microwave's window is steamy. Let the bowl sit for 5 minutes before you open the door, and wipe the inside clean with ease.
De-stink the garbage disposal
Run a few lemon rinds through the disposal and follow with cold water to dispel any sour odors.
Eliminate pet odor
Deodorize the soft, cushy places around your house — including the dog bed — by sprinkling surfaces with baking soda, letting it sit for 15 minutes, and then vacuuming it up.
