If you have wood floors and need something to help you keep crumbs up and clean them, I love my Shark "Steam then Vac". This is a great product. Easy maintenance, and quick to use. The cost is about $125.00. We got ours at Bed, Bath and Beyond.
Vinegar and Boiling water is great for cleaning spots of your carpet without leaving residue and it was recommended to me by Stanley steamer.
A great, easy meal: Turkey Kielbasa on top of rice with corn (all mixed together). It was yummy. I bet you it would be good with a rice that's made by Goya!
Oh yeah, Vinegar and Boiling water would probably work great at removing stubborn stains from clothes.
