LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- We found six new uses for dishwashing soap on Yahoo! that can help save you time and money.
1: Kill weeds.
Mix 1 teaspoon of dishwashing liquid with 1 cup of salt and 1 gallon of white vinegar. Pour the solution on weeds sprouting in the cracks and crevices of sidewalks, driveways, and patio pavers.
2:Wash away ants. Get rid of them with a simple 50-50 solution of water and white vinegar, with a dash of dishwashing liquid. Spray the affected area with the mix and wait a few minutes.
3: Green your lawn. Fill a reservoir of a 10 or 20-gallon hose-end sprayer with water and a 12-ounce can of beer or non-diet cola, half a cup mouthwash and 1 cup of dishwashing liquid. The dishwashing liquid helps spread the concoction more evenly across your lawn. Water your lawn approximately every three weeks.
4: Air conditioner cleaner. Clean your foam or metal mesh air conditioner filters once a month during the summer with dishwashing liquid. Soak the filter in a bath of warm water and dish soap, then scrub it gently with a toothbrush. Once you've removed any debris, rinse it and dry it completely. This will help you out on your energy bill.
5: Add life to your locks. If your hair is looking lifeless, try mixing a dollop of dishwashing liquid into your shampoo. It fights grease in hair, as well as on dishes!
6: Give your blender a good cleaning. Forget about taking your blender apart to wash it thoroughly. Instead, fill it partway with warm water and dishwashing detergent, cover it, and run it for a few seconds. Empty it, rinse it, air-dry it, and call it a day.
