Vinegar and baking soda works great in the drains. I have had to do that before. I think it works better than drano! Great on slow drains before they get stopped up. There are so many uses for many of these items.

Here is a tip for baking soda and cooking...
To get beef and chicken tender just soak it in a 1/8 of a teaspoon of baking soda to 3 cups of water for about 15 minutes and then rinse well and season. It make a big difference when doing stir frys. Just like in the Chinese restaurants. Be careful if your watching your sodium using this tip though

oh yeah, brushing your teeth with baking soda really gives your teeth that extra shine. I just wet my toothbrush, dip the top of the toothbrush into the baking soda and brush away. After that, I'll brush my teeth the normal way with toothpaste to get the taste out of my mouth. lol

Wow, thanks for the extra tips and tricks.

If the drain gets clogged up. I pour a cup of baking soda down the drain and pour a cup of white vinegar down the drain. The bubbles breaks down whatever is stopping the drain up. If it's really clogged up, I'll repeat the process.

I love to save money and use natural solution when I can...Like it said the list is endless..

Vinegar and baking soda are two must haves in my house. I use vinegar for many things. And the smell doesn't last long as soon as its dry the smell is gone. It works great to stop the itch from bug bites. Then during the summer when ants outside the house are just everywhere spray some vinegar and keep them at bay (reapply regularly )they don't like the acidity. I even cleaning my floors with it, they have a nice shine when dry. I use it in laundry mixed with baking soda in the final rinse for a natural softener and odor remover.

Another handy tip when you need a heating pad is to take a sock (a long one), and fill it with uncooked rice and tie the end into a knot and when needed place it in the microwave at one minute intervals until the perfect temperature is achieved (about 2-3 minutes). Do not over heat it as it may cause burns. Use it around your neck, hold it to you ear for earache relief. place it on any spot needing a heated relief. When finished just put it up for next time. It is reusable. Just don't get it wet.

easy ways to save money
12 Low-Tech Tools You'll Always Use
They're guaranteed to save you money, no matter how fast technology advances.
By Alice Mangum Perry

GPS, smartphone, laptop? Sure, they'll help you find your way out of an urban jungle or dig up a recipe for dinner. But they also cost big bucks and are major environmental downers, filled with toxic heavy metals and flame-retardant chemicals that leach into groundwater near landfills and poison children who disassemble "recycled" computers in developing countries.

Not only that, but our parents and grandparents managed to survive entire lifetimes without them. They knew that the most useful tools in life don't require battery power or major credit card debt, and while their go-to tools might not let you catch up on the latest season of Homeland, they can save you big bucks, whether it's keeping track of those $200 sunglasses you just bought or saving that $5 bag of pita chips from going stale too soon.

Here's their legacy of cheap tools that you should always have on hand:
