      dawns soap and water on the stair wet a wash cloth you don’t care about damp it with the same place the wash cloth over the stain place the iron on top on low and stream it. I did this before the red come up into the wash cloth it takes time and effort rinse the wash cloth every now and then.

    I love the dishwasher tablets, they work just as good as the name brand ones. Does anyone have a homemade recipe for a rinse aid like jet dry? Thanks!

      I heard you can use straight vinegar.

    Great recipes!We use baking soda, vinegar and lemons to clean just about everything.
    E-cloths are great for sound the kitchen and bathrooms. It just takes a
    little water and that’s it. The company offers different clots for
    different surfaces (cook top, stainless steel, etc.)
