"Forget keeping skin soft, baby oil also polishes chrome. Apply a dab to a cotton cloth and use it to shine everything from faucets to hubcaps. You'll end up with shiny, happy surfaces from a medicine-cabinet staple. (Who actually owns chrome cleaner, anyway?) "
The Good: This definitely does get faucets sparkling, and seems to remove hard water stains.
The Bad: It seems like a temporary fit. The next day everything comes back . . .or maybe we are just really messy?
The Ugly: My faucets seemed slippery and slimy, no matter how much I kept whipping off the oil.
"Laminate Floor Cleaner: Vinegar, Water, Dish Soap, Alcohol."
The Good: This did clean my laminate floors. Even without any alcohol (I had none on hand) it still seemed to streak less then my store bought cleaner. My floors looked amazing afterwards.
The Bad: The vinegar smell seems to linger for a while, and it is a pretty strong smell.
The Ugly: I read on eHow that vinegar on wood floors can ruin the protective finish on the floors, which makes me nervous that it would ruin the finish on my laminate floors too. If that protective finish gets ruined on laminate, then you've basically just ruined your floors. Not sure I would use this one again just for that reason alone. not worth chancing it.
Now, while I was doing all this cleaning Scout decided to have her first, second, third, and FOURTH potty accidents on our carpet. Totally frustrated with that little pup. We would take her on a walk, then 20 minutes later she'd pee on the rug. What is up with that?
I think she wanted me to stop cleaning and just play with her or something, not sure what she was doing. I tried to use the rest of the laminate cleaner on the pet stains but that just made my house smell worse (a similar recipe was being toted on Pinterest as working for pet stains). I need to do some more research on this issue. After all that cleaning, my house now just smells like animal- so gross. I've never wanted to be that house!
Any good solutions you have for pet stains please share!
