Hack 1: Kitchenware Stain Removal
Have a stained wine decanter or coffee pot? Maybe some stained wine glasses with red wine marks? Use denture cleaning tablets to make them look brand new. No, I’m not joking. Dissolve a denture cleaning tablet in water and then pour into whatever stained container you’re cleaning. Let it sit overnight and then dry it with a microfiber cloth, and it’ll be good as new! This trick is also great for severely stained toilet bowls or sinks.
Hack 2: Brighten Stainless Steel
Are your stainless steel appliances looking dull after cleaning them with window or multi-purpose cleaner? There’s no need to buy specialty products — simply place a few drops of olive oil or baby oil on a microfiber cloth and buff the stainless steel until it shines!
Hack 3: Whiten and Clean
Use an old toothbrush and whitening toothpaste to clean and brighten grout in the bathroom, or even to make white sneakers look brand new. Never throw away your old toothbrushes, they are fantastic for cleaning hard to reach areas!
