    If you drop a glass or a light globe use a slice of bread to pick up all the tiny shards

    I tried this once but it didn't work for me..

    Tea tree oil / bicarb soda for getting rid of fleas

    Paste of bicarb vinegar and washing soda (not crystals) makes great stainless steel and bathroom cleaner.

    Vinegar for multi purpose spray and fabric softener..I add essential oils to mine.

    Homemade washing liquid/powder is do easy and cheap to make.. Using borax washing soda and velvet soap..

    Vinegar alone has SO many uses!! I stock bottles of it at home...it keeps spiders ants millipedes bugs away.. I use it also to clean my floors :-) and metho.. And boiling hot water...

    If you keep getting little holes in your clothes below the waist area you are likely getting it from rubbing agains your kitchen benches, wear an apron.

    Borax is what tha expensive little bottle of ant rid is made of, just mix borax an water place in a small lid near the ants nest and they'll be gone.

    Put some water on the surface and pour bi-carb onto it. Make a slurry by using your fingers to mix the water and bicarb, it should be like a paste.

    Then massage the bench top with your fingertips until the stain is gone.
    Thanks for this! Just removed rust stains from my bench that I'd learned to live with (baking trays sitting for too long with moisture under them).

    If you've been working with machines and you have black grease all over your hands, wash your hands with washing powder! The grains help remove the embedded grease.

    Oops not sure if it's a deterrent, actually you should put some honey or sugar in the mix to make sure they get attracted to it, it will kill the ants.

    To clean really stubborn grime off oven racks, put water in your bath tub and add napisan (I usually add at least 3 or 4 cap fulls). Soak the racks overnight, and the grime pretty much just wipes off.

    Also the bicarb and water paste is also great for cleaning pen off a wooden table!
