Add a little vinegar to the ammonia and water for windows. Throw a packet of yeast in your toilets if you have a septic system. To get your white clothes etc. really white use a little Cascade dishwasher detergent to your washer and soak overnight.

Use old newspaper (or any paper) for cleaning windows, doesn't leave streaks.

Rubbing alcohol works well on windows too.

Great replies everyone.

Had no idea about Yeast and septic.

I always get streaks for windows especially here cause of the salt air and dust film.

Used vinegar and water on mold for a bit but seems bleach water faster.

The one our kids always were grossed out about, but really very effective. I always used a vaginal speculum to stuff the turkey for the Holidays. Do this a few times and you will get lots of invitations to spend the Holidays at the home of other family members!
