Olive oil massaged into bumps and scrapes right away to avoid bruising.

Dish soap for breaking down food stains. Rinse out before washing.

Hair spray to scrub out pen marks.

Windex to break down blood stains.

Rice to clean bottles/pitchers with narrow openings.

Pour a drop of soap, some water and rice into the bottle. Cover and shake. Watch the dirt slide right off.

How much of a scent does it give your house and how often do you need to do it?


I do it once a week! I just put a few drops on a paper towels and rub a little in the vents. Smells heaven and not overpowering

Hydrogen peroxide to clean off fresh blood stains. Works like magic. Keep pouring a little at a time until the stain is gone.

put a drop of Basic G from Shaklee into wash machine when washing socks, linens, rags to disinfect germs.

I use graffiti remover spray bought in hardware store to remove paint, marker, crayon stains on clothing.

I use Shaklees Scour off paste for everything like pots & stove instead of St moritz. Also use it to take off some marks/grime on walls.

Graffiti remover? I didn't know there was such a thing! Do you mean paint thinner? Does it ruin clothes?

To get rid of stains on white clothing or to get your white t-shirts all the way white again, soak them in bleach with water and then wash in washing machine (2 times to get rid of bleachy smell) your stuff is as good as new (usually do that end of summer)

Make sure your item is white with no other coloring on

No its not paint thinner.

No it doesnt ruin clothes if anything it saves it because once you have such stains on clothes its unwearable. I also use it for crayon/markers on walls

Rub baking soda on meat before starting to work with it, leave it on for about ten minutes and then wash thoroughly. The meat is softer than ever.
