Hydrogen Peroxide To The Rescue

Posted on March 31st, 2015 by Discount Debbie

peroxide

A couple of weeks ago, I shared a few practical household uses of hydrogen peroxide. Among those uses was removing stains from light colored carpets. Well, I wondered whether the peroxide would have the same effect on our light colored furniture.

It has been a struggle to try to keep the furniture clean. I do my best to make sure that we keep food and drinks off the couches… not always very successfully. Sometimes I come home after making a quick run to work out to pick up groceries only to find all sorts of crumbs and stains on the couches. It’s like they wait for me to walk out the door to eat and drink on the “forbidden territory.” 😉 Okay, okay. So, it’s not that bad. But, you moms know that it feels that way, doesn’t it? So, I wash the cushion covers regularly.

The pattern I’ve described creates two tone couches. The cushions look white/off white and the arm rests and the rest of the frame, which cannot be washed, are yellow-ish. I haven’t wanted to cover the whole thing with a slipcover. So….

couch 1

I decided to put some hydrogen peroxide in a spray bottle and sprayed the peroxide onto a very dingy armrest. He thought it would be more effective to pour the peroxide onto the material. So, we did half and half. (Welcome to marriage compromises…) I was going to leave it on there until it dried. However, my chemistry-teacher-husband suggested that I put baking soda on top of it to ensure that the peroxide was absorbed back up through the dirty material and not just down into whatever that is under the dingy upholstery.

I left it on overnight and vacuumed and brushed off the baking soda in the morning. Here is what it looked like when I removed all the baking soda. The only marking on the arm rest was where I “compromised” and let my husband pour (instead of spray) the peroxide. We can fix that easily now that I know how this works!

I think we have an all natural, non-toxic, easy, thrifty answer to alleviating the two tone couch!

How do you get rid of stains on your upholstery?

Whole Foods Organic Deals

Posted on September 25th, 2014 by Coupon Cathy

There are a couple of Whole Foods fallacies floating around among shoppers. Some people think that if you shop at Whole Foods, then you must be healthy. The corollary to that fallacy is that everything that Whole Foods sells is healthy. I offer two words to get the facts straight in regards to that idea: tortilla chips. You can buy organic tortilla chips or non-organic. While the organic chips may be pesticide and GMO-free, they still aren’t “good for you.” They are just slightly less bad for you. 😉 Feel free to add sugar, processed foods in cans and boxes and all kinds of bread and baked goods. That should settle any dispute regarding everything at Whole Foods being healthy. The other fallacy is that everything at Whole Foods is more expensive than you would find it elsewhere. If you shop organic or non-GMO foods, this is simply not true at all. There are specific items that I buy at Whole Foods specifically because I get them at better prices at Whole Foods. Check out this week’s list of deals on organic foods.

Sprouts Organic Deals

Posted on March 26th, 2014 by Discount Debbie

I think I’m addicted. No, it’s nothing that’s actually hurting me or my loved ones; it’s an addiction to Sprouts weekly organic deals. Because I’m a comparison shopper, I know what the organic items we buy generally cost at the stores (and online sites) where I purchase them. So, that’s part of the reason that I continue to be amazed that just about every week, I can find really great deals on organic foods at Sprouts.

This week is the Big Brand Sale, which features the Sprouts brand. And, because Sprouts does make some organic items, like salsa, eggs, crackers, frozen fruit and vegetables and coconut oil, this is shaping up to be a very good sale for bargain organic food buyers, like me. Did I just coin a phrase, “bargain organic food buyers?” It’s not an oxymoron; it really is possible to save money and buy organic. This week’s Sprouts deals can show you how!
