Recently Shawna reminded me that if I run out of dishwashing detergent, I can just use white vinegar and baking soda in my machine until I get to the store. I had totally forgotten about that trick, and you know what, it works so well! You just put the white vinegar in the door compartment (to shine up the glasses and prevent spotting), and dump some baking soda in the floor of the dishwasher. Such a good tip!

Has anyone else used any kind of homemade cleaner? I.e. laundry soap, bathroom cleaner, toilet bowl cleaner, all-purpose cleaner? My mom reminded me that she used to use white vinegar on my hair after shampooing to give it shine. What about you? Have you ever tried anything like that?
