Thrifty Reviews - Clean Dishes and White Teeth

Im trying out 2 thrifty substitutes today and I will let you know if they work.  I'm hoping they do because they could save me some money AND a trip to the store, since I always have these things around the house.  Wish me luck!  --I also put the number for poison control on my

1. Vinegar as a dishwasher rinse agent.

I pulled out my "clean" dishes today only to find my glasses are ROUGH!  That ain't right.
I usually use Jet Dry, but I'm now out of it so I decided to try using vinegar.  We'll see....  I'll tell you right now I'm skeptical, but I'll find out tonight!
2.  Teeth Whitener

Did you know people use Hydrogen Peroxide as a mouthwash to whiten their teeth?  What??  I thought it sounded crazy but what the heck, I'm gonna try it.  I'll be the guinea pig :)

Before my wedding I went to a professional to get them whitened (gotta match them with your dress) and it felt like tiny knives were stabbing my mouth, AND they told me I had to lay off soy sauce!  Are you kidding me??  That's no way to live!

I'll report in a week.  I'd do before and after pictures but nobody wants to see that.  Well,  I don't want to see that.


I'd heard about the hydrogen peroxide thing. Let me know how it works!

I would think the H2O2 would increase teeth sensitivity. I had mine professionally whitened years ago, and they still hurt. Sigh.

Also, I swear by Lemi Shine for hard water spot removal. The dishwasher repairman suggested vinegar, but I didn't think it worked.

Winner I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days. My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But
