Tightwad Tuesday- alternative uses of common household products



TightWad Tuesdays

Here are some alternative uses for everyday  products you probably have in your home already.

Got a scratch on a dvd or cd? Apply toothpaste to a cotton ball and wipe the disc. Wash with water afterwards and you’ve got a brand new disc!

Little kids drawing on the walls? You can wipe the walls with rubbing alcohol to make permenant marker marks disappear quickly.

Dirty windows? Instead of using a spray and a streaky cloth, use only newspaper to clean off your mirrors and windows for a streak-free finish.

Vinegar is a magic wonder when it comes to gardening. It kills weeds without a lot of harsh chemicals. Douse vinegar all around your garden to prevent weeds from popping up.

Toss whole slices of lemon into the garbage disposal then run it. The acidity of the lemon will rid your sink of all odors and leave a fresh scent that usually lasts for a few months.
