Frugal Tip Friday

I want to share a frugal tip that I ACTUALLY use in my home with you guys each Friday & I am calling it "Frugal Tip Friday", hope you enjoy!

Today's topic is White Vinegar instead of Fabric Softener:

I love, love, love white vinegar!!! Why?? Easy - It's cheap, green and has tons of uses. My favorite use for vinegar is in the wash. I got started using vinegar when my oldest son was born (isn't that how we all get started with something new, we try it for our baby) and I was washing his clothes in Dreft (PS - don't waste your money use ALL Free & Clear) but then running Downy through them which is full of fragrance - isn't that why I was using Dreft??? Totally confused I went to the master Jedi (my Mom) for info. Mom is all in to being green and had just seen on one of her green shows to use vinegar in the wash. "Yuck, MOM! My clothes will stink!!" "Ok, Hollie. Then don't try it." I love my Mom! So I caved & bought a gallon at Wal-Mart for under 2 bucks - it's not like a huge investment to give it a try I thought. Poured it in the little softener cap on my washer and the rest is history! As time went on I learned more about using vinegar in the wash and found that since my family has sensitive skin I was already a step ahead of the game in that department since vinegar is non-allergenic. It is green since you are not polluting the water supply with the chemicals that are in typical softener. It helps keep your colors bright, prevents lint, aids in odor removal & fights stains - what more could you want?? I have read that once you dry your clothes the smell disappears and I find that untrue, I never smell vinegar when they are wet and I hang dry lots of stuff.

How to use:
Simply add approximately 3/4 cup to the final rinse cycle or if you have a liquid-fabric-softener dispenser feature on your washer, you can add it there. You can also use a refillable fabric-softener/laundry ball and add vinegar instead of retail fabric softener. I don't measure how much I put in my dispenser feature I just fill it to the line, let's not make this hard.

Where to buy:
I buy my vinegar at Sam's in a double 1-gallon pack for around $3 but I have also gotten it at Wal-Mart for $1.75 or so. I buy the cheapest I can find - no need to be a brand whore, it's vinegar.

What to buy:
I use white distilled vinegar reduced with water to 5% acidity.

Also lifting a full gallon of vinegar then trying to pour it into the dispenser can be difficult so I reused a VOSS water bottle. Works like a charm! One thing that is a major no-no when you use vinegar is to combine it with bleach, if you use bleach in a load wait for the bleach cycle to finish before you add the vinegar.

Ready to give it a try?? Already use vinegar in the wash??? Leave me a comment & let me know what you think, really I do care!

** UPDATE! Oops! The $4 coupon is for the twin pack which is not $6.99, sorry! **

** Don't forget to bring your own bags & remind the cashier to give you 5¢ back on each bag you bring in & use. This doesn't have to be the reusable bags it can be plastic bags from any store. I roll my used plastic bags then store them in empty tissue cubes. I keep a cube full of bags in my car so that if I forget my reusable bags I at least have these plus they are always handy when you have kids. When your plastic bags get holes don't forget to recycle them at Albies! **

      I am a New Mom, Again!!

      Ok so I am not really the new Mom, but I like to think of myself as the surrogate to my precious little 13 new baby.....ducks!
      So here is a quick recap, when we moved to this neighborhood 6 1/2 years ago there was a set of Mallard Ducks that would come to our street for mating season each year. The last 2 years they have been in my backyard & we were very diligent about shooing them away but this year they got by us and made their nest in our bushes & laid their eggs. Well I couldn't throw the babies (aka eggs) away much to my hub's dismay so we were getting things together to become duck owners and thought that we had another week of incubation - wrong! This morning my little one who is 21 months came to me and pointed at the back doors and says, "Kack, kack!" I say "Oh yes, are the ducks (meaning the Mom & Dad) in the pool again?" he now really points at the door & says "KACK, KACK!" Hmmmm. Well low and behold he was right 15 ducks in the pool! First let me say oh yes they are cute and how neat to have ducks in your backyard - WRONG! They poo all the time just look at the pics of my pool & that color is so much better than what it has been since they landed in our pool. They have done some serious damage to our yard, we couldn't mow because it upset Mama and I have been there 2 times so I told the hub to leave it be until they babies get here. So now they are here and we can get rid of them and start working on getting our yard ready for summer - WRONG AGAIN! They are a protected duck and no service will come and get them, to sum it up they are ours to figure out what to do with. Great! Just what I needed one more thing to take care of. So what is a girl to do??? I run next door and enlist the help of my neighbors of course and have them chase these ducks around for 3 hours with me! Actually it was fun and we laughed a lot - thanks guys! So we scooped them up out of the pool and got them in a crate and then my hub comes in the yard thinking that we are nuts (he is sooo loving me today) and gets busy building a ghetto duck house in 30 minutes. He says that it will just have to do and their Mother can take care of them until he gets home tonight to see what else we can do. He hurt his back yesterday moving all 150+ packs of waters (see here, here, here, here & here) around so this should be a fun night! Here are some pics of my babies:

      Any suggestions or comments are welcome!
