I will have to have DH give me his recipes for plant food and ant repellent. He got them from a guy whose name escapes me but he rights tons of books and has a magazine all about using household items instead of chemicals for anything and everything.
There is one that reccomends using toothpaste to remove stains from your countertops - I have done this and it works pretty well - takes a bit of scrubbing but it will take out juice stains.
Most of the things used are whiskey, coffee grounds, dish soap (dawn) and cayenne pepper. He also uses epsom salts and liquid hydrogen (peroxide).
I will keep an eye open for the book - probably in a box somewhere.
