Lemon Rub for Copper + Brass

Dip half a fresh lemon in salt and rub it over a tarnished metal. Wash with soapy water, rinse and buffer dry.

Oven Cleaner

Scrub a cold over with equal parts vinegar and water. If something spills in your oven, pour salt on the spill while the oven is still warm, and sweep out the salt with a brush when everything’s cool.

Killing the Fridge Demon

Clean your refrigerator’s walls, shelves and drawers with a solution of 1/2 cup water, 3 tablespoons baking soda, and 6 drops essential oil of your choice.

To absorb weird smells, leave a small, open box of baking soda in a corner of the fridge. Alternatively, you can use a small bowl of coffee grounds (unused coffee grounds, thanks). These two tricks work well for musty freezers, also.

Gross Food Tips

If your cooking pot is crusty with burnt stuff, scrub it with baking soda while it’s still hot.
