  • 1.Removing Hard Water Stains
...natural way! Hard to believe that a lemon can be so powerful. Not only that, but you don’t have to deal with that harsh chemical smell, only the scent of fresh lemons! This is a heck of a lot cheaper, too!

  • 2. Reconditioning Cast Iron
I’ve only owned one of these beautiful pans for a few years now, and I’ve come to learn that they take a lot more care than your traditional non-stick pan. You certainly can’t just throw them in the dishwasher, but they should last you for many, many years if not forever

  • 3.Cloudy Glassware
I’m going to invest in a huge bottle of vinegar, maybe even buy some stock. This stuff is amazing, &I can’t believe I’m just now running into all of it’s wonderful uses. I buy a bottle of it for dyeing easter eggs every couple of years, but other than that, I’ve been missing out!

  • 4.Knives & Lemon Juice
I’ve had such a hard time with rust spots on knives, but I’ve finally found a way to keep it from happening. The huge wooden knife block on my counter was the culprit! Well, when they were stored in there still wet from the dishwasher, that is.

  • 5.Cleaning Makeup Brushes
Did you know they make a shampoo designed specifically for makeup brushes? I’ve only washed mine a handful of times MY ENTIRE LIFE. That sounds bad, but I just forget. I guess I’m fortunate that I don’t break out much, but if you do, this could be the problem!

  • 6.Shower Cleaning Wand
I actually have one of these on my shopping list (I need this terribly in my shower). I think they’re meant for dishes, but what a great idea to use it in the shower! Fill it with just 2 ingredients and then never let your shower get disgusting again.

  • 8.Mr. Clean Magic Erasers
I’m convinced these actually do contain some source of weird magical powers. I mean, how does it do it?! You’d be surprised at how many things you can clean with one of these white miracle sponges. Even nail polish doesn’t stand a chance in a match against one of these.

  • 9.Cleaning A Shower Head
Again, just ONE ingredient! The best part about this little trick is that there is no scrubbing involved. Just let it sit for an hour and you’re good to go. This not only looks better, I’m sure it improves the water pressure as well.

  • 10.Cleaning A Bathroom Exhaust
I’m not sure that I’ve ever done this before — oops! I pay extra special attention to my bathrooms when I clean, but the ceiling is the last thing on my mind. Make the job easy with a blast of canned air! My hubby uses this stuff for his keyboard.

  • 11.The Kitchen Sink
One of the most important places to clean often! Germs and bacteria collect here like a cesspool. Learn how to clean it the natural way without using harsh chemicals. It’s also much better for the surface of your sink – making it look new for longer.

  • 12.Cleaning Your Toothbrush
I use to boil my toothbrushes every so often, until one time I got mouth full of loose bristles while brushing my teeth. Boiling kills most of the million of germs that collect on your brush, but also takes it’s toll on it.

  • 13.Cleaning A Bathtub Drain
Because I have a lot of hair (A LOT), this is often a problem in my household. I can’t help that my hair is everywhere, and for the most part it doesn’t bother me, but when it gets to the point where it takes 30 minutes to drain the tub, it becomes a problem.

  • 14.Removing Scratches On Ceramic
…with something you wouldn’t expect! These plates look brand new in the after photo, don’t they? There’s no reason to replace your favorite dinnerware just because it has a few scratches. Even if you only have a few, this will certainly polish them up.

  • 14.De-Pill Your Clothes
Those annoying little balls of fiber you get all over some of your clothes — how in the world to get them off in a clean sweep? Don’t do what I do and try to pick them off one by one. There’s an easier solution to this and it just involves one of your old disposable razor!

  • 15.Cleaning A Vacuum Filter
So many more uses for your dishwasher than you can imagine. It’s like a machine! Oh wait, it is a machine. Vacuum filters are extremely pricey (like ink is for a printer), but if you can get that thing clean, there’s no need to replace it.

  • 16.I cut a piece of the cotton coil, soaked it in bleach, and let it sit overnight on the mold.  (Tip: I put a disposable pie pan in the tub, poured the bleach in the pan, then soaked the cotton in there before transferring it to the mold – helps with the dripping!

  • 18.Cleaning Toys
Kid’s are pretty gross. I mean, they have their fingers in their nose a majority of the time, and then they put their boogers randomly all over the house. I’d rather touch a toilet than anything in a toddler’s toy chest, but maybe that’s just me. Check out this brilliant idea.

And I thought nail polish on tile was a disaster! I really hope this tragedy never befalls me, but in the unfortunate case that it does, I’m glad I’ve found this helpful tip. This is truly magic!

  • 20.Tub Cleaner
Not just tub cleaner, but a tub cleaner that doesn’t require any scrubbing. What? Yeah, just a little bit of time to let it sit and work it’s magic. Who comes up with this stuff? Some people amaze me. Like I said, It’s time to start investing in vinegar.
