Household Cleaning Tricks

There are many items around the house than can serve double-duty and can actually be used to assist with cleaning in addition to their original purpose. Here are a few interesting tips:

To remove stickers or other appliqu s from appliances -- in the event the kids decide to redecorate without your knowledge -- spray a lubricant that is used to stop squeaks or prevent doors from sticking (like WD-40), and use a plastic spatula to scrape off the stickers.

You can give a moldy vinyl bathroom shower curtain a new lease on life by soaking it for a few minutes in a bathtub of warm water and a scoop of laundry detergent that contains bleach.

Burnt-on foods can be a pain to get off of pots and pans. Use a few denture cleaning tablets and soak with warm water. Food lifts off easily.
