Frugal Fridays: Easy things to replace around the house

Sorry about the lack of a Frugal Friday post last week. Honestly, I was exhausted and completely forgot!!!

This weeks Frugal Friday post will be a few little things we all use around the house that have low cost replacements you can make at home.

1.  Mouth Wash- I spoke to my dentist and asked which mouth wash was the best one to buy.  Simple answer?  None.  He said most of them have things in them that dry out the mucous membranes in your mouth and actually allow bacteria to flourish!  The best thing to use instead?  Gargle with salt water.  I simply use a plastic water bottle that I would have recycled and dump salt in it with some hot tap water.  It will help kill the bad breath bacteria in your mouth, keep your gum lines healthy and is much cheaper than buying mouth wash at the store.  His hygienist also told me she soaks her bite (night) guard in salt water during the day and doesn't have to brush it or deep clean it as often.  Since I've started doing that too, I've notice an awesome difference.

2. Oil remover- I'm talking laundry.  Don't you hate it when you have an oily stain on your shirt?  Shampoo will take most oily stains right out.  I buy cheapo stuff and keep it with my laundry stuff, or you can use whatever happens to be in your shower.  Use a toothbrush to gently scrub the stain with shampoo and toss in the washer.  No need to buy special sprays or pre-treaters.

3.  Microwave cleaner AKA gunk unsticker- Hot water.  Seriously.  Take a bowl of water, put it in the microwave and set it on high for 5 minutes to 10 minutes depending on how stuck on the gunk is.  The steam from the boiling water will loosen the gunk in your microwave and all you have to do is follow behind with a damp cloth and wipe your microwave out.  If you are feeling extra saucy, you can add lemon juice or other extracts to the water to make your microwave smell nice too.  :)

There you have it.  Three easy things to make or do at home to save you money.

Happy Friday!
