I've heard it said that Coke will remove grease stains from your clothing. So I did the research, tried it out and sure enough... It really does work! It doesn't clean, so you will need to use detergent as well.. but it does in fact remove the grease stains and odor from clothes.
I found this Borax at the grocery store in the cleaning isle. It cost 2.50 for a medium sized box (4lbs). It's an amazing product!! It just gives a little boost to your detergent. I try to do a quick spot check to my laundry before throwing it in, but at times i do miss spots... This has really come in handy for that purpose.
Borax is can also be used to clean a porcelain tub, hard water stains, delicates in the wash, it removes odor from garbage pails, and is soft enough for delicate china. I use it for those hard to reach areas in the toilet as well. I just pour some into the bowl before bed, swish and flush the next morning and it practically sparkles! I also used it to clean my drip pans on my stove (that were waaaay over due) I just soaked them and used a scrub brush and now they look brand new again!! Try it out and let me know how it works for you!!
I'm the mother to three very energetic little boys and a wife to a man who rocks my world!
I decided a long time ago that staying home, with complete 24/7 focus on my family, was the career path for me.
I probably laugh more than I should, yell more than I should, and do not stay put anywhere as long as I should...
We try to make God the center of our home, a guest at at every meal, and a silent listener to every conversation...
We live on Main Street in Crazy Town, USA!!!
President David O. McKay declared: "Motherhood is the greatest potential influence either for good or ill in human life. The mother's image is the first that stamps itself on the unwritten page of the young child's mind. It is her caress that first awakens a sense of security, her kiss, the first realization of affection; her sympathy and tenderness, the first assurance that there is love in the world." (Gospel Ideals, p. 452.) President McKay continues: "Motherhood consists of three principal attributes or qualities: namely, (1) the power to bear, (2) the ability to rear, (3) the gift to love. . . This ability and willingness properly to rear children, the gift to love, and eagerness, yes, longing to express it in soul development, make motherhood the noblest office or calling in the world. She who can paint a masterpiece or write a book that will influence millions deserves the admiration and the plaudits of mankind; but she who rears successfully a family of healthy, beautiful sons and daughters, whose influence will be felt through generations to come, . . . deserves the highest honor that man can give, and the choicest blessings of God." (Gospel Ideals, pp. 453-54.)
