Today’s thrifty tip is sprinkle baking soda on your carpets, let sit for 15-20 minutes and then vacuum. It’s cheaper than the stuff in the store and not toxic. It deordorizes the carpet.
Today’s thrifty tip is if you get sugar ants then spray a mixture of vinegar and water. You mix half vinegar and half water in a spray bottle and shake. Then just clean the surface as you normally would and just spray the infested area. Don’t wipe it but let it dry on it’s own. It takes a day or two but it works for me.
