[b:2bhaiaxv]Cleaning tip #1[/b:2bhaiaxv]
For getting rid of caked on limescale from your taps etc. use a solution of neat vinegar. Either apply it with a toothbrush, scrub it around, leave it for a few hours and then rinse, or dowse a piece of kitchen roll in it, using an elastic band attach it to the tap, leave overnight and rinse it off for a brilliant shine! :D
[b:2bhaiaxv]Cleaning tip #2[/b:2bhaiaxv]
For cleaning a stained toilet, dissolve 2 Steradent denture tablets in the bowl. Rub inside the toilet bowl with a toilet brush for the large areas and use a toothbrush for the smaller areas. And hey presto - no more icky toilet bowl!
for all you chrome appliances, use windowlene wipes!!! there the biz at shining them like new!!!
For oven trays that are difficult to clean, put biological washing powder on it with boiling water and leave for a few hours...good as new..

to remove chewing gum that has hardened into cloth pop the item in the freezer leave until hard/frozen and remove - the chewing gum should come away from the material easily :D
Also to clean your hob and give it a good-as-new sparkly look dip some kitchen roll into baby oil (not too much) and apply - it will come up good as new.

[b:334uhg30]Clean Your Microwave[/b:334uhg30]
Easiest way to clean the inside of your microwave, I've found, is to put a bowl of water in there (with or withour a squirt of lemon) and microwave it for a few minutes. The steam lifts all the dirt so it should just wipe off easily with a piece of kitchen roll.
I had a problem with stains in my sink, mainly tea stains.
Rub some washing powder round the sink with a damp cloth or sponge.
All shiny & sparkly again!
for cleaning George Forman(sp) grills. Heat them up for 1 min and rub clean with hot soapy water. Rinse with clean(not soapy) water.
Might be obvious to most people but I used to really struggle with cleaning the George!!
