Around the house
  • Keep your carpet smelling fresh and clean with baking soda - just sprinkle the soda liberally over the entire carpet and let it sit for an hour. Then vacuum it up.

  • For a sweeter smelling house, squeeze a few drops of lemon juice into the dust-bag of your vacuum  cleaner before you start it up.

  • You can use mayonnaise to remove crayon marks from wood furniture. Just let it sit for ten minutes and then rub with a soft cloth.

  • Vinegar is an inexpensive and effective cleaning agent and it has many practical uses:

  • To remove white water deposits from your pots and pans, simply pour white vinegar into the pot and boil for 15 minutes.

  • Cleaning your dishwasher is child's play if you run an empty cycle with white vinegar.

  • White vinegar can also remove stains and odours of pets from the carpet.

  • When you are painting, just add a few drops of vanilla essence to the paint when mixing. This will remove the unpleasant smell and still won't affect the colour.

  • To keep the toilet bowl sparkling, mix equal parts of baking soda and borax; add white vinegar and use this mixture as a cleaning fluid.
