Cleaning 101 - Tip #2

It seems everyone can always use a little help with inexpensive cleaning ideas to keep our homes beautiful and refreshing. Martha Stewart's Homecleaning Solutions: Bathroom Cleaning Tips are useful and practical. The site offers recipes to make your own cleaning products for certain jobs, informs you how to wash your shower linens, and clean bathroom toys. There is also an advertisment spot for Martha's cleaning products. I've never used them, so I can't say how well they work, but I do know her time-tested, homemade recipes do.

Cleaning Tip #2 "Clean bacteria and mildew from bath toys by giving them a vinegar-water bath. Fill a bucket or large bowl with warm water, adding 1/2 cup white vinegar per gallon of water. Soak toys for 10 minutes, then rub gently with a sponge and allow to dry. The acetic acid in vinegar cuts through dirt buildup and works as a natural disinfectant."
