How to Clean Your Washing Machine

One would think that the interior of a washing machine would be the cleanest place in a home since it’s continually being filled with soap and water. However, over time the interior of your washing machine can build up hard water film. Additionally, it can harbor mold and bacteria.

To remedy these problems, pour a quart of white vinegar into the wash tub and run the machine through a hot wash cycle. Do this about every three months to keep the tub of your machine in tip top shape.

How to Revive Wilted Vegetables

Grocery stores often have special sprinkler systems over their produce bins that periodically mist the vegetables to keep them crisp and fresh looking. Our refrigerators tend to dry things out, which leaves us with veggies that appear to have given up the ghost.

To revive your wilted produce, add 1 tablespoon of vinegar to a pan of cold water. Soak the veggies for about one hour and they should be good to go. (You can substitute lemon juice for the vinegar.)
