Nana’s #1 All-Time Favorite Cleaning Product (Helpful Hint #2)–Never mind the strong smell…

Look if you guys have a Family Dollar or a Dollar Tree Store–or even a Dollar General Store, you need to check this stuff out!

I’ve used this in lieu of stain sticks and stuff to get stains out of clothing and cleaning appliances…You can read about this stuff on the website link I put above, but there is no bleach, ammonia, etc… in this stuff.  It will clean almost ANYTHING! Seriously!  The best part of it is, it is usually only $1 for a spray bottle of it, or anywhere from $3-3.50 for the big refill bottle. I use it at full strength to do deep cleaning at the store I work in and I’ve never diluted it for the stove. I let it set for about a minute (two tops) and then wipe it off.  I don’t recommend it for really BADLY messed up ovens…NOT a good idea. Now if you need a stainless sink to be made silver again, this should do it after letting it set for a couple of minutes too.

Pick up a bottle and read what you can use it on! I’ve taken some pretty bad carpet stains out with it too, and it didn’t damage it! However it does have a strong smell to it!

I am not kidding around! This stuff works on some of the toughest cleaning jobs I’ve ever dealt with!


Nana’s Helpful Hint–and you MAY NOT NEED a PLUMBER!

Okay…Bathrooms are a pain in the ass to clean.  They are even more of a pain if you don’t live in an apartment complex with a maintenance person OR a halfway decent super…I’ve known too many people that had to wait a week for the super to show up or wait through a holiday weekend for a bloody plumber.  Before I go further, you need to know that if you use PVC piping on your plumbing neither lye nor things like Draino or Liquid Plumber are good for the lines.  DON’T USE ‘EM!  Over time, that can cause major problems especially if you live in an area like I do with hard water…Again, it’s a pain in the ass to fix! But if you’re too afraid to try what I am about to tell you, then call the plumber…It’s much safer–especially if you’re prone to making problem situations worse by trying to play Mr. or Ms. Fix It!

That being said, I am going to give you something to try FIRST.  Do NOT pick up that phone until you do unless you want to spend a minimum of $200.00 that you might not be able to afford.  There are only TWO things you need for this concoction…You need 1-30 oz. bottle of CLOROX bleach.  DO NOT USE STORE brands. The concentration of chlorine varies and this works best.  Then you need about 32-40 oz. of COKE CLASSIC. AGAIN, do not use store brands and such. If they don’t have COKE CLASSIC, Use ORIGINAL PEPSI. This is for the acid content and either one is pretty strong by itself.

CAUTION: Above all make sure the area is WELL VENTILATED.  The smell of this shit can knock the hide off of a buffalo AND/OR cause the meanest billy-goat to humble himself very quickly!
If it is a sink, try to plunge it to get rid of excess water first. If you can’t just do the best you can.  If it’s the toilet, same thing.  After you do that, pour in the soda first.  It looks freaky at first but when you add the bottle of bleach it will clear up. Wait a few minutes and it will start bubbling like mad…Once the bubbling slows down and/or stops (about 45 minutes) try putting hot water down the sink.  If it’s the toilet, flush it.  If it works, then great! I just saved you a fortune and you can thank me later.  If it only speeds up the draining (or flushing a little) then repeat it one more time.   Either way it’s worth a shot before calling the plumber. I know because I used this on my toilet tonight. BOOYAH! Have a great Sunday!
