Here is a list of some “Around the House Staples” that also work to help clean your home.

  1. White Bread – Gently dab a slice of white bread over the surface of a dusty oil painting to pick up the dirt and grim.
  2. Ketchup – Remove tarnish from copper and brass cookware by squeezing some ketchup onto a cloth and rub it onto your pots and pans then rinse them off with warm water and a dry towel.
  3. Oatmeal – Make a thick paste of oatmeal and water and scrub your hands with them to remove that hard to remove dirt on your hands.  Be sure to rinse well after.
  4. Rice – Clean the inside of a vase or a thin necked bottle by filling it three quarters with warm water then add a tablespoon of uncooked rice, cup your hand over the opening and shake vigorously then rinse it out.
  5. Tea – Brew a few pots of strong black tea and let it cool down, after cooled pour into a bucket and soak your tools in them for a few hours to remove rust. Be sure to wipe each one with a cloth.
  6. Club Soda – To shine up a scuffed stainless steel sink just buff the sink with a cloth dampened with club soda followed by wiping with a dry cloth.
  7. Hydrogen Peroxide – Disinfect and clean a dirty keyboard by dipping a cotton swab in hydrogen peroxide and then cleaning in between each key.
  8. Cornstarch – Pour some cornstarch onto grease stains on your carpet and let sit for 20 to 30 minutes before vacuuming.
  9. Rubbing Alcohol – Erase permanent marker stains from wood floors by pouring a bit of rubbing alcohol onto a cotton ball and rubbing it on the market stain.
