With his trademark folksy wisdom, Earl Proulx tells you how to recycle those things we all have lying around the house into ingenious solutions without spending money on fancy cleaning solutions, or pricey gadgets. Some of Earl's particular favorites are kitty litter (as a cleaner for oils pills and as a base for a soothing facial mask) and, of course, vinegar (to clean just about anything, unclog showerheads, as well as trap fruit pests), duct tape (as both tick remover and a protection against blisters), and milk jugs (bird feeders and clothespin holders). His fun and inventive ideas also include- Ant-proof your home with lemon juice Cover up furniture scratches with a dab of iodine Use powdered milk to soothe sunburn and remove makeup Make an earring holder out of window screen Recycle bubble wrap for a toilet tank insulator Organized by location inside and outside of the house, Vinegar, Duct Tape, Milk Jugs & More will make you pause each time you start to throw something (old blue jeans, ice cube trays, coat hangers, egg cartons) out in the trash.
