4 Top Secret Cleaning Agents You Never Knew You Had

Kelly Bagnasco is a great resource for many things, These include great recipes, handy DIY projects, and life hacks that tell about numerous uses for many things. She has given me permission to use any of her posts that I think would be useful for my readers. She has been a blogger that I have followed for years. I even have made a website just for many of her great tips and information about the various uses for things from foods to everyday items that most people have around the house. You will see many of her posts on this website. She is so concise that there is not much else I could say to enhance any of her posts.
The pictures I got off of Google. They are not mine, I did not take them. I do not want any credit for them. These hacks use things that many people have at home already. They use items such as Coca Cola, non gel toothpaste, Real Mayonnaise, and one that is not as common as the others, but common none the less, and that is denture cleaner. Hope you find the hacks to be useful.


Can Of Coca Cola

Coca-Cola. Coca-Cola is a classic drink (pun intended), but that’s not all it’s good for! Next time you burn rice (or anything else) and it sticks to the bottom of a pan, pour an entire can of Coke into the pan while it’s still warm. Put the pan on the stove at low heat for about an hour – the acid in the Coke will break down the burnt food in the pot. Then, run the pot through your normal dish-washing routine.

A tube of toothpaste

Toothpaste. Do you brush your teeth? Nice. Then you can also clean your leather shoes and sneakers! Grab a tube of gel-free toothpaste, a soft cloth and any scuffed or dirty kicks. Squirt a dab of the paste on the problem-area, and then rub it vigorously with the dry cloth. Wipe the toothpaste away with a damp cloth and your shoe will shine!

jar of real mayo

Mayonnaise. When you think “mayo,” you probably picture sandwiches and potato salad, but the condiment can also erase drink rings like a boss. Next time you spot a drink ring on a wooden table, take action by lightly rubbing mayo into the stain (only real mayo will do!). Once it’s completely coated, let it sit overnight, and then wipe it away with a clean cloth. Drink rings not a problem in your home? Mayo can also fight crayon stains and piano key discoloration.

Denture Cleanser Tablets

Denture Tablets. Look up. Are your light fixtures covered with dirt and dust? These fixtures are a pain to clean, especially if they’re intricate. Enter: denture tablets. To make your light fixtures sparkle, grab a large bucket and a few denture tablets. Fill the bucket with warm water, drop the tablets in and add the lighting fixture. Let the fixture soak for about an hour, then remove and rinse clean. Note: There isn’t a set “denture tablet number rule.” If your glass fixture is really dirty, use the whole box!
