mine are: use boiling water on fruit based stains. i know if goes against what you were prob. taught, but NOTHING works better! i've spilled red wine all over everything imaginable- comes out every time! blueberries...disappear! trust me! it's truly great. also, i wash our floors w/vinegar and hot water. they come out great, and if a toddler should say, eat something off the floor, etc., it is safe! how 'bout you???
