Frugal Tips

I was playing with search engines, looking for money saving ideas, or frugal tips and found lots of good stuff. Everyone should try it.

One of the things I saw was buying windshield washer fluid is cheaper than buying window cleaner in the spray bottles. When you buy some for your car, use a little to fill up that spray bottle you use for windows and mirrors.

It seems to me, that when I was a kid, my mom mixed ammonia with water for windows, vinegar with water for most kitchen cleaning and bleach with water for the bathroom. As I recall, it was a cost saver back then, so it seems to me the same would be true now. We throw away a bunch of money for 'convenience' items.

I find vinegar and water in a spray bottle to be best for windows. With crumpled up newspaper instead of a cloth or squeedgie etc. It works great and the house smells like a chippie. And it's so cheap.
