Cleaning tip #1

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

Cleaning tip #2

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!

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.

Clean Your Microwave

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!!
