#20 Refresh Naturally: Instead of chemical plug-in air fresheners, place a few slices of citrus fruit such as lemon or orange in a saucepan, together with a few cloves. Simmer the mixture gently for an hour or so to refresh the smell of your house.
#19 Keep Your House Smell-Free: Use baking soda to stop nasty odors in your refrigerator or garbage can instead of air fresheners that contain chemicals. The baking soda works to neutralize nasty smells without adverse effects. You can also combine it with lemon juice and water and use it as a room spray.
#18 Plant away smells - Commercial air fresheners work by masking smells and coating the nasal passages with chemicals that diminish the sense of smell by deadening the nerves. In addition, they also pollute the air. Houseplants act as natural air filters, so invest in a few and place them in areas like the kitchen and bathroom where they can counter unpleasant odors.
#17 Bake Off Stains - For hard-to-beat, stubborn stains on your kitchen surfaces, dampen a sponge and apply baking powder, then wipe clean as normal. The abrasive powder will get rid of most stains, but if the mark remains, try re-soaking the stain with a solution of baking powder instead.
#16 Club Stains Away - To keep fresh stains from sinking deep into clothes immediately apply a little carbonated water or club soda. The carbonation in the water bubbles up the stain and the salts keep the color from sticking. Then wash as normal.
REMEMBER: Most electronics are NOT counted toward your total pickup volume. (Data destruction, monitors, tv's and speakers are extra.) In fact, with a minimum amount, electronics-only pick up is free. Our express truck zips around town a lot!
We will be adding a "Free" page to our website soon. We pickup lots of odds, ends, small, unique items that the thrift stores don't want or throw away. Keep your eyes open at www.notthedump.com for an additional page coming soon listing these items.
We are considering getting a booth at the Omaha Farmer's Market for a few of the Saturdays over the next 3 or 4 months. This would be to sell some of our repurposed items that we've accumulated over the years. Anyone interested in sharing? Do you have your own unique, repurposed or redone items to sell? Let's show Omaha that the dump doesn't need to be fed!
#15 Don't Disinfect - For a disinfectant that really works when you absolutely need it (for example, when toilet-training young animals) and also gets rid of grease and even attacks rust, mix 3-6 tablespoons of eucalyptus oil with 2 pints of water and decant into a spray bottle. Shake before use and keep sealed in the refrigerator for up to a month.
#14 Clean Up With Vinegar - Don't clean your toilet with a mineral-deposits remover as it contains harsh chemicals that harm the environment when flushed down the toilet into the water system. Vinegar is an excellent substitute to scrub off rust and deposits marks.
#13 Shine Those Windows - Instead of using window-cleaning sprays that contain ammonia, which is harmful to wildlife, wash your windows with pure soap and water and then rinse with a solution of one part vinegar to four parts water. Use washable, reusable cloth instead of paper towels.
Junk removal is what we do! People ask often. We take all the stuff you don't want and recycle it, donate it, reuse it, repurpose it, all before throwing the rest away.
#11 Hands Off Smells - If your hands smell of fish or onions after preparing a meal, don't immediately reach for the hand-washing liquid. Salt dissolved in warm water will do just as well as a handwash and will keep your run-off water detergent-free.
The pictures we're posting are not our work. They are, however, the kinds of things we do with some of the junk we pick up or the salvage/demolition that we do. Another reason why NotTheDump should be the one you call to pick up your leftovers. :)

Happy New years
Hello everyone Charles Harrison Gm of not the dumb thanks for your support.
Hello everyone, I'm posting about some exciting changes happening at Not The Dump. The deconsctruction, repurposing portion of the business is divesting and joining the new company: Reclaimed Enterprises, Inc. Please visit the new page and see what we do. Deconstruction of houses and interiors. Reclaimed focuses on teh saving of as much as possible from the deconstruction of houses, diverting waste from the landfill and job creation. It is so very important! Go see it!
#12 Brew Up A Clean Floor - Tea is all you need to clean wooden floors and bring up the shine, particularly on older wooden flooring. Brew two teabags in hot water and cool to room temperature, then apply with a mop or a cloth. The added bonus is that there's no need to rinse. Only use thin on genuine hardwood flooring to bring out the natural grain and luster.
