Here's one I always use. If the inside of your microwave needs to be cleaned, take some citrus peels, (leftover after someone eats the fruit), place in a small bowl and microwave for 30 seconds- 1 minute depending on how dirty it is. Then let it sit without opening the door for 2 minutes so the steam can coat the inside and then everything just wipes clean. I just throw the leftover peels in a baggie in the freeezer until I need them.

What to do with old newspapers,stuff them in your wet shoes or boots keep taking out and stuff new ones in till paper comes out dry.Do this every couple hours or so.I do this when making clogs and they dry in less then a day.And NO the print does not come off on my clogs

Brilliant!! We use the spray beside the window. I have to keep the window ledge clean along with the toothbrush holder and stuff. I've been using glass cleaner that has ammonia. I'll mix a spray bottle of water and shampoo and see if it works better.

Thanks!

Lets see
*Tang, drunk hot helps with Laryngitis

*Shaving cream on the Mirror and allowed to slide down then cleaned off the bottom of the mirror, the mirror wont fog up for Quite a while

I used to use the conditioner one when I shaved my legs

*not really house cleaning, but when teaching toddlers to cook, have them mix up a cake on the open (and supported) dishwasher door
then a few good things happen
1) Mom is less likely to get DOWN there to "help"
2) if they spill, its just a matter of shutting the door and running the cycle
3) the kid can tell someone special they cooked a cake ALL by themselves
