SOFTEN MINERAL DEPOSITS - Place paper towels or sponges soaked in full-strength vinegar or lemon juice over crusty build-up around faucets. Leave in place for an hour or so. Then scrub deposits away.
KILL GERMS - You can safely and effectively sanitize countertops with white vinegar and hydrogen peroxide. Spray the surface with one, then the other, and wipe. It doesn't matter which goes on first, but keep them in separate bottles and do not dilute.
SCRUB AWAY KITCHEN STAINS - Make a paste of 3 parts warm water to 1 part baking oda. With a damp sponge or cloth, rub it onto the surface to be cleaned, then rinse. Use to clean laminate countertops and refrigerator surfaces, to remove grease from pots, and to shine chrome and stainless steel.
