Common Household Products With Uncommon Uses

Sometimes it is best to take things back to the basics. If you have walked through the cleaning, beauty, and kitchen supply areas of your local store you will see that there are hundreds of products for hundreds of dollars that claim to be able to clean your kitchen the best, condition your hair the best and brighten your smile the best.

Well; what if I told you that you could get great results with common household products that cost just a few dollars? You would be excited, right? Well we asked around to a lot of different people and here are common household products with uncommon uses. From using peanut butter to get gum out of hair to using beer to stave off pesky bugs, we found lots of creative ways to tackle everyday problems. Some things seem pretty wacky, so make sure to try at your own risk

      One question though, does it make clear plastic such as the acrylic plastic on clocks get cloudy?

    I have just recently gotten on a kick of using rubbing alcohol a lot around the house. Use it to clean your windows instead of window cleaner. It leaves the glass streak free! Spray it on a paper towel and wipe around the LCD screen if you have little finger prints.

    Also a new favorite (thanks to the deal from The Natural Store $20 off coupon code!) is Dr. Bronners 18-in-1 soap. It is awesome and does everything from a general cleaner to shampoo and body wash!
