  • Pewter vessels become like new if you rub them well with a cabbage leaf.
  • Clean the interior of the oven with a hot mixture of water and vinegar, and then rinse. In order to avoid cleaning again your oven too soon, place aluminum paper on the lower part of your oven and change it as many times as needed.

  • Cleaning the kettle. Boil a few ml of water in the pot, and then add the same amount of vinegar and leave it for several hours or even a whole night like that; the next day you’ll see that dirt and stains disappeared. Rinse the kettle, then fill it with water and boil it again. Repeat this process several times before using the kettle.
  • Wash the plastic recipients stained with tomato sauce by their softening for one hour in a diluted sterilization solution. Finally, rinse them well with water.
  • Baking soda is a versatile product that is a must to have in every kitchen. Use it to clean:
  • wood surfaces for cutting (the chopper): put baking soda on a wet cloth and rub the certain area;
  • stains such as coffee, juice or ink ones: mix in a cup a little bit of baking soda with water and rub the stain until it gets cleaned;
  • stainless steel sinks: place a little bit of baking soda in the sink. Rub it by using a wet cloth and then rinse it. It will not get scratched and the sink will look sparkling in the end!
  • The dishwasher machine can be used not only for the dishes but for cleaning other objects in the house as well, such as the plastic toys of your children, the oven trays, the grill, the grill trays, the detergent drawer of the washing machine, the platen inside the oven and the heat resistant glass vases.
  • Baby oil. There is no need to use large quantities, one drop is enough to:
  • clean the sofa, the armchair or a leather stool. It gives back the sparkle of objects made of stainless steel. It also gives sparkle to tiles;
  • prevent scale build-up in the soap base: rub the soap base with a little bit of baby oil.

  • You can clean a cup of coffee if you place in it ice cubes and a little bit of salt and you start shaking it.
  • The recycle bin. It’s good to wipe it from the exterior as well as the interior with a cloth that you’ve used for cleaning purposes in the kitchen. If you want to do more than that, prepare in a dish a solution with borax and water (2 tablespoons of borax for 1 liter of water), soften in it a dry cloth and then wipe the recycle bin.
  • Rust on the sinks. To eliminate rust stains from stainless steel sinks, rub the stained areas with a little bit of briquette liquid. If your sink is made of ceramic, fill it with cool water, add a cup of bleach and let it soften. And then rinse very well.
