Things You'll Need
Dish Soap
White Vinegar
Spray Bottle
From home repair to houseplant care, liquid dish soap can get it done. Well I have some quirky ideas that you probably haven't thought of!
1. Dish soap makes a great window cleaner; mix a teaspoon of liquid dish soap with a teaspoon of cornstarch into a gallon of water. Swish it on, squeegee it off, this little mixture will leave you with a streak free shine, every time!
2. Can't find the hole in your inflatable mattress? Soap it up. Dip a washcloth into a little water and a little dish soap and swish it over the mattress, the escaping air will make the soap bubble up so you can find the hole and patch it up.
3. To remove microwave stains, pour a cup of water into a microwave safe bowl, add a tablespoon of white vinegar and a few drops of dish soap. Turn it on high for five minutes and then let sit for another ten. When the time is up just wipe away the stains and build-up!
4. If you have pests munching on your plants add a few drops of dish soap to a spray bottle of room temperature water. Spray your plants each week to keep them happy and healthy!
