Nancy McWhorter – For The Record

At my age, cleaning house has become a difficult chore.  Getting down on my hands and knees as I could do when I was young is no longer possible.  Any tips and/or suggestion to help ease those tasks are always welcome.

My daughter, Carol Farley, has a dear neighbor and friend, Ludy Harville.  Since becoming acquainted with Ludy, I recognize her to be thoughtful, kind and caring to all that know her.  She is loved by many.  Recently Ludy sent me this KEEPER “recipe” tip for cleaning the bathtub that may also be useful to you.

I had never known before that there was such a thing as “Cleaning Vinegar.”  Ludy explained it could either be in the grocery store’s cleaning supply isle or located with the vinegars.  I found it to be with the vinegars in Walmart’s on the bottom shelf.  I purchased the 64 oz. (2 qt.) “White House all natural Cleaning Vinegar, Lemon Scent.”  With this “recipe” it should last for a long, long time.

I am grateful to Ludy for sharing this “recipe” with me and permission to pass it along to the Minden Press-Herald.

Homemade Bathtub Cleaning Solution

(Not Edible)


*1 cup Heinz Cleaning Vinegar

1 cup Blue Dawn Dishwasher Solution

Heat vinegar and pour into a spray bottle.  Add Dawn to the Cleaning Vinegar and shake together.  It will be a little thick.  Spray mixture into and around bathtub; leave for 1 hour.  Then just rinse; no more scrubbing.

*Cleansing Vinegar may be found either with the regular vinegar isle or with the cleaning supplies.
