Secret Cleaning Tips

I received a great email from Real Simple this morning. They revealed 10 Sure-to-Surprise You Natural Cleaners. I have listed some of my favorites below....

White bread : Dust an oil painting. Gently dab a slice of white bread over the surface to pick up dirt and grime.

Ketchup: Remove tarnish from copper and brass cookware. Squeeze ketchup onto a cloth and rub it on pots and pans. They should go back to their coppery color in minutes. Rinse with warm water and dry with a towel.

Rice : Clean the inside of a vase or a thin-necked bottle. Fill three quarters of the vessel with warm water and add a tablespoon of uncooked rice. Cup your hand over the opening, shake vigorously, and rinse.

Club Soda: Shine up a scuffed stainless-steel sink. Buff with a cloth dampened with club soda, then wipe dry with another clean cloth.

Hydrogen Peroxide: Disinfect a keyboard. Dip a cotton swab in hydrogen peroxide to get into those nooks and crannies.
