Inspired by my recent lack of cleaning supplies while readying my apartment for desertion I thought that I would write a little bit about alternative uses for some kitchen staples.
Vinegar (although likely not the balsamic variety) is great for cleaning glass and mirrors. Just spray or wipe on and then wipe off using a sponge, cloth, paper towel, or the classic newsprint.
Baking powder is great for scouring burnt food off the bottom of pots and pans. You can also use it to clean your sinks or tub.
You’ve probably heard that like attracts like. You can apply this theory when cleaning greasy surfaces. Wipe a little vegetable oil over the grease spot and it’s should come off (note: this does not apply to fabrics).
Have yellowing white clothing or towels? Try putting some lemon juice on the discoloured area and leave out in the sun for the day.
