I have a question about one of those glass/ceramic top stoves. I am having to constantly clean mine... sometimes having to take a knife and scrape stuff off of it. I am almost out of Cerama Bryte and I can't find any more locally.

This stove just is a pain. Any suggestions on how to keep it clean??

Please be patient, God is not finished with me yet.

On the subject of Bounce dryer sheets....they also repel rodents. A few sheets tucked in the storage area of your "chewables" will keep things un-chewed.

Microwave magic. Spay the inside really well with a half and half lemon juice and water solution then nuke on high for about 30 seconds. Everything will just wipe right off with a paper towel and smells great. BTW I like the dryer sheet ideas. Did you know that Bounce dryer sheets also repel mosquitoes?

Speaking of used dryer sheets, I love using them with nail polish remover to remove polish. Scrubs off polish and does not leave fuzzies like cotton balls

I use dryer sheets to clean up my baseboards and sinks. It gets the dirt and grime build up right off. I do use an actual cleaner on my sinks after to make sure everything is sanitized.

I read that vodka cleans stainless steel . But I'd stick to vinegar and baking soda..for obvious reasons!

Ok, so the other day I was speaking to someone about a little trick I do for cleaning my countertops and tough stains (juice, coffee, etc) and they hadn't heard of it.

Which prompted me to think- what other little things do people do that maybe they think are totally common knowledge but maybe aren't! What are your little cleaning tricks and tips that you use and realize might be kind of "out there" or not-so-common-knowledge?

I'll start:

"Magic" Cream of tartar- A natural "mr.clean magic eraser" for countertops and areas you don't want any harsh abrasions- cream of tartar powder! Sprinkle it on the stain and scrub and little and it works like magic.

Clogged pipes? - For my home, my pipes are older and I was worried about using draino on a really clogged bathroom sink. I tried pouring baking soda down it and then following it with vinegar (found that tip online while searching for "natural draino"). It worked wonders! Did a few follow-up treatments and the drain was clear by the next morning. Apparently you can do this on a regular basis just to keep things flowing ok.

Ok- your turn- share your tips here :)
