The current cost of products gives pause to most purchasers. Consideration of need and usefulness are on the rise. A consistent money-saving technique is to think about products in a dual-purpose light. Sometimes a great deal is passed over because the main use of a product is deemed unnecessary. But by considering other uses for common products, a good deal becomes a fantastic deal.

Here are a handful of dual-purpose suggestions:

  1. Paper towel to keep vegetables fresh longer. (Line the vegetable container with paper towel.)

  2. White vinegar as a meat marinade and tenderizing agent. (Spice as desired to add flavor.)

  3. Baking soda as a scrubbing agent for cleaning everything from microwaves to silver. (Add water to make a paste.)
  4. Soap to lubricate furniture drawers. (Remove squeaky or hard to slide drawers, and rub runners with a bar of soap.)

  5. Lemons or lemon juice to deodorize cutting surfaces. (Rub on thoroughly, allow to sit, then rinse well.)

  6. Tea bags for dying garments. (Soak garment in hot water with tea bags, then rinse with cold water.)

  7. Aluminum foil as a pot scrubber. (Crumple a piece of foil and use instead of a scrub-sponge.)

  8. Strong mouthwash as a cut, scrape or abrasion antiseptic. (Pour or soak a minor surface wound to disinfect.)

  9. Re-sealable plastic bags for separating jewelry. (Store jewelry in sets for easy accessorizing.)

  10. Dry milk to thaw frozen fish. (Reconstitute the milk in water, immersing the fish in it to thaw.)

  11. Aluminum foil to eliminate static cling in the dryer. (Crumple a piece and throw in with loads; leave from load to load.)
