Try This!!!

So far, my summer is shaping up to be: The Summer of Pinterest! Here are two new tips I found & tried - and YES! They worked!!☺

The first tip I found: 'defunk your bath towels.' My bath towels smell just fine, but my kitchen towels: they are another story. I've tried washing them in bleach + hot water, even Pine-Sol + hot water. Nothing could get rid of the 'kitchen' smell. I figured I had to try this simple tip & am so glad I did.

The magic solution: place your towels in the washer with 1 cup vinegar (NO detergent or fabric softener) + wash in the HOT cycle. After that is finished, run your towels again on hot (again no detergent or fabric softener) with 1/2 cup of baking soda. Voila! No more smelly towels!☺

The second tested tip: homemade granite cleaner! I have wasted good money on expensive granite cleaners that don't do much. Try this! I just found it this morning & it worked great on our granite countertops.
