6 cups water
3 cups white vinegar
2 cups hair conditioner (any kind, any price)

Mix well, but don't let it foam up

One gallon of fabric softener for only $1.39! That's about two cents an ounce!

Old flannel shirt or wash clothes
Fabric softener

Cut up an old flannel shirt or old wash clothes into strips or squares. Soak material in fabric softener. Throw the strips into the dryer; you can use it over and over.

This recipe costs just a few pennies to make!

Leftover soaps
Glass jar

Gather up bits of left over soaps, or small hotel soaps you have under your sink or in a closet. Cut the soap into small bits. Put the bits into a glass jar and add boiling water. Mix up and let cool. Use for smaller stains.

Cost of this recipe is FREE!

1 cup of hot water
1/2 cup of baking soda
1/2 cup of hydrogen peroxide

Mix all three ingredients in a spray bottle. Apply to stain and let set overnight. Put it in the wash the next day and it should get out bigger stains like blood, grass and ketchup.

This recipe costs about 25 cents for a batch of really effective stain remover!
