In spite of the enormous quantities of food consumed in this household, my new favorite recipes are not meant to be consumed. Please do not eat them. Please.
The Recipe for a Clean Mattress After an Accident
8 ounces hydrogen peroxide
2 tablespoons baking soda
a drop of dish soap
Mix it a spray bottle, spray it on the stain (works on all kinds of stains, they say), and in 5-10 minutes it should be lifting right off. For impatient users (me), rub a bunch of borax in after about 5 minutes. Put on your bedroom fan and leave for the day. About the time you are dead exhausted and can't wait to get into bed, re-enter the bedroom and sigh that your bed is not made. But the mattress looks great! Vacuum off (yes, Trent hauled the regular vacuum onto the bed and it worked great) all the now-dry powder and ta-da! White spot!
The Recipe For Dead Weeds
1 quart vinegar
1 teaspoon liquid dish soap
1/4 cup salt
Mix and pour into a sprayer. Spray on weeds. Watch them die.
And the best thing about both of the recipes is that they work. Honest.
