    Default Spinoff: solve your cleaning issues here

    So it sounds like some of us are better cleaners than others in here, so why not help out hopeless cleaners such as myself with your tips and tricks....

    I have 2 issues. 1st my cooktop. How do I get it back to stainless steel?

    2nd, clothes that go in the wash not exactly dirty (just worn) but come out with what appears to be oily stains which don't come out in subsequent washes.

    Can anyone help? Anyone else have tier own cleaning dilemmas they need help solving?

    For your oily clothes..... It is coming from your washing machine. I would try doing a vinegar wash. Just pour a 2lt bottle of vinegar in and do a short hot wash cycle. X

    I think you could use steel wool on your cooktop?

    I think so. Probably a stupid question, so I do an empty load with the vinegar? Does the vinegar rinse out so it no longer smells?

    Wouldn't that scratch it?

    Yup. Empty load. you're supposed to do it periodically... but I never have. I should add it to my to do list for spring cleaning.

    That might scratch the stainless steel I think.

    Have you tried stainless steel cleaning wipes? I use them and find they clean up stainless steel very nicely.
    Maybe try some vinegar on it and sprinkle a bit of bicarb leave for a few minutes then gently wipe it off then finish with a stainless steel wipe.

    Re stovetop - I use those magic eraser things you can use to get crayon off the walls. Works super well, just warm/hot water and it cleans up all nice and shiny 😀

    I'd try bicarb and vinegar on the stove top. Sprinkle bicarb on then spray it with white vinegar and clean.
