Home Myth Busting

Today I am Myth Busting! As of recently I have tried quite a few tips and tricks that I have heard of but never really put to the test. Today I am bringing you five of these little nuggets of wisdom and letting you know, is it a myth or a fact?

Rub a sliced onion over hives to relieve the itching!

1.) Naturally make your grill non stick with 1/2 of an onion.
 I couldn’t believe this worked! All you have to do to make your grill non-stick is cut an onion in half and rub the cut side on the heated grill grate, throw your goodies on the grill and get to grilling...no stick no problem! Conclusion: FACT

Rubbing Alcohol Use it to: Erase permanent-marker stains from finished wood floors or solid-surface countertops. Pour rubbing alcohol onto a cotton ball and apply

2.) Use rubbing alcohol to remove stains from microfiber.
Need: 1 white sponge and 1 white bristle scrubber
           rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle
To Do: SATURATE the stained area 
            Take your sponge and start scrubbing the area hard.
            Let the sprayed areas dry after you are done scrubbing
           Once the couch is COMPLETELY dry, use the bristle brush make swirling motions to refluff 
           the areas you cleaned.

10 Reasons Lemon Juice Is Good For You - Because of its high potassium content, lemon controls high blood pressure, dizziness, and nausea, and provides relaxation to mind and body.   Lemon has antiseptic and styptic properties, so it can stop internal bleeding. For instance, you can put some lemon on a cotton ball and apply it to the inside of your nose to stop a nose bleed.
 3.) Get hard water stains off of your tub faucet.
 This one was super easy. All you do is rub a 1/2 of a lemon over your facet in a scrubbing like motion until water stains are gone.
Conclusion: FACT!
Kitchen Champion:Windex Multi-Surface Vinegar  The only cleanser ($3.26 for 26 oz., amazon.com) that completely removed dirt from stainless steel, laminate, and a painted wall. We found that it required a few extra strokes to thoroughly clean glass, but it left little streaking; it also eliminated grease fast. Contains vinegar — though not its pungent smell.
4.) Clean windows with newspaper for no streaks.
Wad up a ball of newspaper like you would paper towels and use that to wipe up the windex you spray onto the window.
This leaves your windows and mirrors streak free and spotless (and you save money on paper towels)
Conclusion: FACT.
23 household products you NEVER need to buy (for example, use toothpaste as wall filler!) #tip
5.) Get marker off of your wood floors.
Put a dab of white toothpaste on the marker.
Then rub like a mad woman with a damp washcloth or microfiber cloth.
Conclusion: Surprisingly enough....FACT
I must say this was a VERY successful Myth Busting segment. Have you ever tried any of these methods before? Are there any other myths that you want busted?!



  1. I have done the rubbing alcohol on microfiber and it worked so well.

  2. I have always heard about the newspaper thing, how cool is that. I had no clue about toothpaste though. I am the worlds worst about getting freaking toothpaste on my shirts though hahaha.
