✓ Next time you want to clean away the grime in your shower or bathtub just cut a grapefruit in half and sprinkle some salt on it. Scrub using the grapefruit halves and then rinse.

✓ To clean your dishwasher, leave a bowl filled with white vinegar in the top rack and run it on the hottest possible cycle.

✓ To clean a coffee grinder, grind up some uncooked white rice (to remove odors). Afterward, grind up 1 tablespoon of baking soda and then wipe it clean.

✓ You can create an automatic oven cleaner by leaving a bowl with ½ cup of ammonia in the oven overnight (don’t turn it on!). In the morning you can just wipe away the grime.

✓ Vomit on your carpet quite literally stinks. Mix baking soda with water into a paste, spread the mixture on the upchuck and let it sit overnight. You’ll be able to vacuum it up in the morning.

✓ Leather furniture looking a bit tired? Use some shoe polish on that leather sofa or La-Z-Boy and the markings will be no more.

✓ It doesn’t matter where the grease stain is (walls, clothes, etc). Just cover it with chalk, then after a few minutes wipe the chalk away with a moist towel. Bam, it’s grease-free!

✓ The most annoying household task can be unclogging a sink. No more! Put 4 Alka-Seltzer tablets and 1 cup of vinegar down the drain. After 10 minutes rinse with boiling water.
