  1. Freshen old sponges. Soak sponges for five to ten minutes in a mixture of three-quarters cup Clorox bleach per gallon of water, then rinse well.
  2. Kill bacteria and fungi on pumpkins. Mix three-quarters cup Clorox and one gallon water, and dip the pumpkin in a the solution. Then store the pumpkin in a cool, dry place.
  3. Clean ink from the inside walls of a dryer drum. In a bucket, mix two cups Clorox bleach and one gallon of water. Saturate a clean, old bath towel in the mixture, wring out the excess liquid, toss the wet towel in the dryer, and turn the machine on the Fluff setting (so the towel tumbles inside the dryer without any heat). Repeat for as many cycles as necessary. Then dry the inside of the drum with a clean, soft cloth.
  4. Clean tomato sauce stains from inside plasticware containers. Fill the containers with one part Clorox Bleach to two parts water, let sit for ten minutes, then rinse clean.
  5. Clean mildew from shower curtains, shower caddies, bath mats, and plastic soap dishes. Place all the bathroom accessories into the bathtub, fill with two gallons water, and add one and a half cups Clorox bleach. Soak for five to ten minutes, then rinse and drain. The Clorox bleach also will have cleaned the bathtub also, so sponge it down too.
  6. Deodorize the garbage disposal in your sink. Pour Clorox bleach down your drain, then run the hot water for two minutes.
  7. Kill weeds and grass growing between cracks in walkways. Pour Clorox Bleach over the growth.
  8. Clean mildew from grout. Mix three-quarters cup Clorox bleach with one gallon of water, and use an old tooth brush to scrub off the mildew.
  9. Store rock salt for melting snow. Ice melting products are much easier to dispense from Clorox bleach bottles.
  10. Make glasses sparkle and silverware shine. Add a capful of Clorox bleach to the dishwasher.
  11. Create traction for a car or truck stuck in snow or on ice. Pour a little Clorox Bleach directly from the jug over the affected tire, wait one minute, and then try to move the car. The bleach chemically reacts with the rubber tire, making it stickier, increasing the traction.
