Get rid of the greasy film off your kitchen cabinets
Cooking regularly leads to greasy buildups on cabinets near the stove and some appliances as well. To clean the nasty film off, dab a paper towel in some vegetable pol and use it to wipe over the greasy film.
Use stove-top liners
Scrubbing away the residue and solid baked food stuck on your stove is usually the common approach. However, you can save time and efforts by simply replacing the liners.
Clean your cutting board
Cutting boards are useful and easy to use, but they can be a household for germs, that is why you should clean them regularly by coating them with kosher salt and scrubbing them with half a lemon. Once done, rinse the boards lightly and dry them.
Clean your dishwasher with a lemon Kool-Aid packet
You can fight the stains by emptying the dishwasher and running it with a packet of kool-aid.
Foil your glass
If you have debris stuck on your cookware, then scrunch a tin foil into a ball, then add some water and soap to it before scrubbing away everything.
Clean up your dirty sinks the natural way
Sinks can get really dirty, up to a point where it’s really hard to clean them. To solve that problem, cut a lemon in half, then pour baking soda in a small dish. Once done, sprinkle the baking soda all over the dirty sink and squeeze fresh lemon juice on the baking soda. Take the other lemon half and use it as a sponge to scrub the messy sink. Now turn on the faucet and rinse away the residue.

Clean up nasty tile buildup in the shower
Most people use soap to wash while showering not knowing that that habit actually leads to the nasty tile buildup in the shower because of the oils contained in soap bars. You can use shower gel as an alternative because it acts as detergent as well.

You can clean your bathroom fan without disassembling everything. Use a can of compressed air instead. All you have to do is turn the fan on and blast it with the can of compressed air. Once done, dust the bathroom and make sure to do this task two times a year.
Give the loo a proper scrub
Make sure to scrub under the rim when cleaning the toilet bowl and make sure to remove the toilet seat a couple of times a year to gain access to all the crevices.
Wash your clothes in pepper
To prevent your clothes from bleeding, add a teaspoon of pepper into the wash. This method will maintain the brightness of your clothes for a longer time than expected.
Chalk it off
If you have grease stains on your clothes, then rub a little bit of chalk into the grease stain as fast as you can, then wash the piece of clothing normally.

If your sneakers are dirty, then grab some toothpaste and an old toothbrush. First, get rid of the loose debris before dampening the outside part of your sneakers. Once done, dab the stained areas with toothpaste and start scrubbing with the toothbrush. Now, wipe away everything and rinse normally.
If candle wax was spilled on your carpet and you don’t know how to get rid of it, then put a paper bag on top of the spill and run a hot iron on top of it so that the heat can melt the was and the paper bag soaks it.
Paint on your clothes
Paint stains are hard to clean, but not impossible, so don’t toss away clothing with paint stains. Instead, get a disposable razor and use it to shave the paint away, but make sure to be gentle. If the stained clothes are 100% cotton, then do not use this method because you’ll end up tearing them.
