How To Clean Dirty Blinds…

Mix equal parts vinegar + water in a bowl. 

Then slip an old sock on your hand, dip your hand (with the sock on it) into the vinegar and water mixture and wipe down each individual slat on the blinds. 
After every couple of slats, dip the sock on your hand into the cleaner and squeeze it a bit to rinse off the dirt.
It’s also helpful to have a second old sock.  Once all the slats have been cleaned, slip the second old sock onto your hand and dry off each slat.



How to Get Kool-Aid Out of White Carpet…

Combine equal parts ammonia and water, or use Windex.

Heat up an iron to the highest cotton setting. 

Soak the stain with the solution of your choice. If the stain is large, work in small sections.

Place a white towel on the section you’re cleaning. Do not use a colored towel, or the color may transfer to the carpet.

 Iron over the towel in ten-second increments. It may take a few applications, but the spot will be soaked into the towel within minutes. If you don’t see the desired effects after the first three applications of the iron, soak the spot and try again. If it isn’t wet enough, the solution will not come up. A sizzling noise is completely normal when the spot is saturated.
