Some how there always seems the need to purchase a bottle of "something" to solve a  particular problem.

Well, I am going to let you in on a secret. There is one item that I've personally found to be a multi - tasker.  The secret is SHAMPOO (any kind).
I have used it to hand wash delicate laundry and use it as stain treatment before putting laundry in the machine.
It is also great as a quick cleaner for the tub and sink.
You should try it on the chrome in your bathrooms. Rinse well, and get a great shine.
I use it to clean brushes and combs. Just think, shampoo cleans hair and doesn't it just follow through to the brushes?
Fix a stuck zipper with a dab of shampoo. It will get it moving again.
I've used it on stains on upholstery (just touch ups on fabric that is washable) and on rugs.

I never told anyone my secret. I thought I'd get funny looks. That is until I read a list of other uses that I must share with you.
To remove a bandage with stuck adhesive, let a few drops of shampoo soak through the adhesive part and the bandage should peel off easier.
Buff your shoes. Use a small amount on a clean cloth and rub into the area as you would shoe polish. Give it a buff. 
Need to get extra grime off of your hands, without drying out your skin. Use some shampoo.
Use shampoo to lubricate squeeky hinges.
Loosen stuck nuts and bolts with a drop of shampoo. Let it seep in and it should loosen easily.

Enjoy the savings and all of that room in your cabinets.

  1. Great idea! I'm giving it a try today. I got some grease on my new jeans and will put a little shampoo on them before I wash them. Thanks! Trudy aka Momma Goddess
