Cleaning Tips:
To keep S.O.S. or other metal scrubbing pads from getting rusty, store them in a
ceramic dish. The dish will draw moisture away from the pad and keep it new longer.

To keep your barbecue grilling racks cleaner and to also avoid food from sticking,
spray them with vegetable or olive oil before grilling food on them.

To remove a smoke film from vinyl wallpaper, try washing the wallpaper with a solution
of 1/2 cup borax, 2 tablespoons soap flakes (like Ivory Flakes), 1 tablespoon
ammonia, and one gallon of warm water. Use full strength in a spray bottle or add two
cups to a pail of warm water.

To polish your copper pans use ketchup. Be generous, scrub with a metal scrubbing
pad, allow to sit for a few minutes, rinse and polish with a clean dry cloth.

To clean your cast iron frying pan simply put in your self cleaning oven during the cleaning cycle.

If you wipe a little glycerin on windows and bathroom mirrors and buff them up, it will
help prevent them from steaming up.

To keep a closet smelling fresh hang a sheet of fabric softener inside.

You can keep glue and nail polish caps from sticking if you apply Vaseline to the bottle top.  

Don't throw away those old toothbrushes!  You can use them to clean very detailed
items on your silver, using toothpaste.  It works wonders!  You can also use a
toothbrush to clean the jets in your jacuzzi bathtub.

Instead of buying expensive stainless steel polisher, mix 2 tablespoons of baking soda
with warm water in a spray bottle.  Shake it up, spray and clean.

When you clean, go from top to bottom.  Remember, dust first, vacuum last

Make yourself a cleaning schedule (or checklist) and stick to it!
