Streak-free mirrors for less

I found this in a magazine and tried it and it really works!

Brew a pot of tea with 3 black tea bags. When cool, pour tea into a spray bottle, spritz onto glass or mirror and buff with a coffee filter. The tannic acid in the tea cuts through the grime and the best deal - no chemicals. I don't think I used a coffee filter though.

Oh wow! That is super simple. Thank you.

Just as an aside, the tanic acid is also healing for canker sores so make a strong cup of tea and swish around in your mouth and then put the wet tea bag on the sore. Helps heal it quickly.

For use on pets after they have been sprayed by a skunk Crying

From Moon!

1qt hydrogen peroxide, 1/4 cup baking soda, and a teaspoon of Dawn Dishsoap. Mix well and use immediately as the mix tends to break down the longer it sits. Let it stay on your dog for a few minutes, working it through the the coat. Rinse well with water and follow with a quick rinse of apple cider vinegar and water. This mix will cover a dog up to 50 lbs and can be adjusted for size and thickness of the dog's coat.
