Mix 1 cup of vinegar with 1 cup of water, then wipe down with a clean cloth.Microwave a bowl of water, vinegar, and lemon slices, wait 1 minute, then wipe with a sponge.Grab your steel wool and grease-cutting dish soap, and prep yourself for a long scrubbing.
You microwave water, vinegar, and lemon slices, then wipe clean.
As the liquids heat up, they essentially steam the insides of the microwave, including the crusted-on food. This makes it super easy to wipe out the inside with a clean towel or sponge. Watch the full how-to here.
Hang it outdoors for the duration of your shower, and hope for the best.Hang it up in the bathroom while you shower wit hot water, so the steam cleans the dress.Spray it with vodka all over, then wait for the vodka to dry.
Spritz with vodka — the other two "hacks" will leave you just as smelly as you were before.
Your outfit will smell boozy right aft you spray it down, but as the vodka evaporates, it will take its own smell and all the other smells on the fabric with it. Read our review of this technique and save serious cash on your dry cleaning bill here.
Wash with hot sudsy water then scrub the rust off with steel wool. Immediately re-season in the oven using vegetable oil.Rinse off the pan in hot water, then scrub the rust off with copper wool. Immediately re-season in the oven using vegetable oil.Rinse off the pan in hot water, then scrub the rust off with copper wool. Re-season by cooking your favorite fat-heavy dish.
Scrub with a little soap and steel wool (yes, soap, and yes, copper wool is too abrasive), then re-season in the oven however you prefer to re-season.
Yeah, you do use soap here, because you're going to have to re-season the pan anyway, and you usually skip the soap because you don't want to damage the seasoning. Read more about all the details (plus how to deal with rust that goes deeper than the surface) at Bon Appétit.
Use the brush attachment on your vacuum and suck up the dust.Take all of the vent covers off, and dust them by hand with a paper towel.Take all of the vent covers off, and run them through the dishwasher with no detergent.
Spray it down with your wrinkle-releaser spray and hope for the best.Coat it in baking soda, let it sit for a few minutes, then vacuum it up.Pull all of the covers off of the cushions and wash them like you would clothes.
You'll want to try sprinkling a coating of baking soda over the cushions. And if that doesn't work, try carpet cleaner.
Here's the full tutorial. Wrinkle-releasing spray may smell good, but it doesn't get rid of odors. Pulling the covers off the cushions to clean them is okay, but depending on the fabric of your couch, washing them like the rest of your clothes could damage them.
Remove the drawers and shelves to wash by hand. Wipe any remaining drips, then set a dish of coffee grounds in the back.Mop up the mess, using soap and water as needed. The smell will go away after a day or two.Clean up any drips and spills inside of the fridge with warm sudsy water. Then, set a sliced lemon in the back.

Use a cleaner like Scrubbing Bubbles on the holes.Fill a ziplock bag with vinegar, then secure it to the shower head overnight with a rubber band.Fill a ziplock bag with vinegar and baking soda, then secure it to the shower head overnight with a rubber band.
The vinegar basically de-scales the mineral buildup on and inside of the shower head — here's the tutorial.
If you have incredibly hard water, you may need to take the shower head off, dump out the little rocks of buildup if there are any, soak the entire shower head in vinegar overnight, then reattach. Scrubbing Bubbles may make the outside of your shower head look clean, but won't do much for breaking down the buildup. The vinegar and baking soda will react to form water with salt, which also won't really help.
Make a paste of 2-3 drops of vinegar and 3 tablespoons of baking soda. Rub the paste on the stain, and let it sit for1-2 hours. Repeat if necessary.Dilute bleach in a 1:1 solution with water, and scrub at the stain with a sponge. Make sure to wear rubber gloves.Add a squeeze of lemon juice to cream of tartar to make a paste. Scrub the paste onto the stain with a toothbrush, then let sit for 2-3 hours.
Cream of tartar should be your go-to to get rid of any rust.
Here's the tutorial. Bleach might work, but it might take more time and will definitely smell worse. Vinegar and baking soda will react to form water and salt (plus whatever baking soda doesn't react), so you're basically letting baking soda and water sit on your counter...which is fine, but not a particularly efffective cleaner unless you're scrubbing.
