3) Hard water stains and limestone:
For hard water stains and limescale all around the faucet, place paper towels soaked in white vinegar and leave on for 20 minutes. After 20 minutres, the hard water stains and limestone will have softened and you will be able to clean everything easily.
4) The wet wipes:
An excellent way to clean furniture upholstery without damaging them is to wipe the furniture with baby wipes. The wipes do not contain toxic chemicals, so they are safe for the fabric. For stubborn stains, use rubbing alcohol and a sponge.

5) Your grandmother used newspaper:
Your grandmother used newspaper to clean the windows and mirrors of her house! But when she had finished, her fingers were stained because of the ink in the newspaper. Be smart. Use coffee filters! Same effect .... without ink stain!
6) Use a pillowcase:
Dust the blades of a ceiling fan with a pillowcase. This will prevent it from falling onto your furniture or floor.

Dust shelves, moldings and baseboards with dryer sheets!
