Windex is a glass and hard-surface cleaner, and the majority of us use this item to clean our bedroom/bathroom mirrors and windows.
Did you know that you can use Windex for more than just cleaning your mirrors and windows? Me neither!
In today's issue I'm featuring two unique ways to use this household staple!

Hint 1: Windex used as a stain remover
As long as you are not dealing with delicate silk fabrics, windex is a great way to get out ketchup and red wine stains.
Lightly spray the stain with Windex and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Blot with a clean cloth, rinse using cold water, and wash as usual. For best results, use the uncolored Windex.
Sure it turns two outlets into six, but that's not even the best part...
Hint 2: Windex used as a degreaser
Windex can soften built-up grease throughout the kitchen, especially on hard-to-clean range hoods, fans, and light fixtures.
Spray surface liberally, let stand for about 10 minutes, and wipe clean. Be sure to rinse thoroughly with water to eliminate any cleanser residue on surfaces you prepare food on.
'Go Green' Hint: Save Water
A full bath may be luxurious and relaxing, but it’s also very wasteful.
An average bathtub can take up to 70 gallons of water to fill, while a 5-minute shower uses just 10-25 gallons.
Better yet, why not shower with your partner? Together, you’ll save nearly 100 gallons of water!
