Clean Your Microwave With Lemon Juice
Looking to clean your microwave, get those onion smells out or remove a few tough stains? For best results, we recommend cleaning your microwave out with a combination of lemon juice and water.
Simply add some lemon juice to a bowl of water, put it in the microwave on high for five minutes, and open it up again. Wipe away food stains quickly and easily.
Boil Baking Soda To Remove Burnt-On Food
We've all done it - you go into the kitchen to make some popcorn, get distracted, and, five minutes later, you've got a pot bottom covered in black carbon. But not to worry - your old pal, baking soda, is here.
To get rid of stubborn burnt-on food, fill the offending pot with water and two cups of vinegar before bringing to the boil. Remove it from the heat, add a further two tablespoons of baking soda, and scrub. The dirt should just come right up. Brilliant!
Hot Drink Stains In Your Mug? Bicarbonate Of Soda
Tea and coffee are the great equalizers of the hot beverage world. If you're not drinking one then you're likely drinking the other. And, whether one or the other, tea and coffee both stain your mugs something awful.
Mix water and bicarbonate of soda right there in your mug, and you'll be able to wipe away the mark with nothing more than a simple sponge.
Remove Ring Marks From Tables With An Iron
There's nothing more frustrating than a stubborn ring mark on your dining room table. They're unsightly and completely avoidable, which means that when someone is careless, the results are even more heartbreaking.
Luckily for you, there's an easy out. Cover the area with the ring mark using a towel and run an iron over it on the coolest setting. Turn the steam off, run it back and forth a few times, and then turn it off. Presto - no more ring!
Remove Paint From A Carpet With Laundry Detergent
Paint on your carpet? Not even a problem - we mean it! Simply mix one-and-a-half teaspoons of vinegar with one-and-a-half teaspoons of laundry detergent in two cups of water and get ready for cleaning magic.
Soak a sponge in this mixture and dab the paint firmly to rinse it away, followed by a splash of cold water.
