1) Disinfect Your Brushes and Combs

Believe it or not but your hairbrush, combs, and makeup brushes can contain a whole host of nasty things, including dirt, oil, and even mites in some cases. Toss your hairbrushes, combs, and makeup brushes in dish soap and warm water to remove grease and hair product build up.

2) Keep Your Glasses Clear With Bar Soap

To prevent your glasses from fogging up, just rub a bar of soap on your lenses. Buff out the soap with a soft cloth, such as microfiber, and you’ll be fog-free. The soap leaves a film on the glass, and while you can’t see it, it prevents the glass from getting foggy.


3) Shine Jewelry

Dish soap can degrease and wash away dirt from your jewelry. Pour some seltzer and dish soap into a bowl and soak your jewelry in the bowl for about five minutes while you move it through the suds. Use a toothbrush to dislodge any grime.

4) Turn a Bar of Soap Into Shower Gel

Use a cheese grater to grate up a bar of soap; once enough shavings have been gathered, add them to a saucepan. Add water to the pot until soap scrapings have been melted thoroughly. Add the mixture to a pump bottle for a cheap, homemade shower gel. The mixture will heat up in the shower for easy dispensing.

5) Make Homemade Cleaning Bombs

In a bowl, mix baking soda, citric acid, and a bit of liquid soap. Stir together with a whisk until it becomes a moist, crumbly mixture. Mold the mixture into an ice cube tray and freeze. Once frozen, drop a “cleaning bomb” into the toilet and watch it do its magic!
