How To Clean (Almost) Anything And Everything

1. Acrylic Paint on Clothing

Just dab with some rubbing alcohol.

2. Air Vents

You’re breathing in all that nasty dust and gray gunk! A rag, a knife, and some 409 should do the trick. 

3. Armpit Stains (Ew)

1 tsp. Dawn dishwashing detergent, 3-4 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide, and a couple tablespoons of baking soda — then scrub.

4. Bagless Vacuum

It requires some taking apart. Get the full directions here.

5. Bath Toys

Mix 1/2 cup of white vinegar with a gallon of water and let the toys soak for an hour. Squeeze all the water out.
But the best tip comes from We Love Being Moms, who says add a dab of hot glue to the air hole so that water doesn’t get into the toy and start harboring mold.

6. Bathroom Exhaust Fans

Using canned air to blow dust and debris out could save your life — exhaust fans are a common cause of household fires.

7. Blinds

Mix equal parts vinegar and water in a bowl. Dip a sock in it. Put your hand in the sock and wipe down the blinds. 

8. Brass

Wipe down with half a lemon covered in salt.

9. Burnt Pans

Fill the bottom of the pan with water. Add a cup of white vinegar to the pan. Bring the pan to a boil. Take the pan off the stove and add 2 tablespoons baking soda. Empty the pan and scour.

10. Carpet Pet Hair

Use a squeegee.

11. Cast Iron Pan

Add a 1/4 cup of kosher salt to the pan and wipe with a paper towel. 

12. Cheese Grater

Grate a piece of raw potato. The hardness of the potato along with the oxalic acid will get that cheesy gunk off your grater.

13. Charcoal Grill

Take a white onion, peel it, cut it in half, stab a fork into the small end of one half. Use the fork to rub the onion back and forth over the grates of a hot grill. The onion will deglaze the grates and add a little extra flavor the next time you bust out your grill!

14. Clarisonic Brushes

Disinfect your Clarisonic brushes with hydrogen peroxide, lemon, and baking soda, and you will drastically cut down on how often you need to buy new heads. 

15. Cloudy Glasses

Vinegar and paper towels will get them sparkling again! Click here for full directions.

16. Coffee Mug Stains

Use baking soda. Get the full directions here.

17. Coffee or Spice Grinder

Pulverize bread or uncooked white rice to pick up lingering aromas. You can also grind 1 tablespoon baking soda and wipe thoroughly.

18. Crockpot

A little oven cleaner (in a well-ventilated room, or outside) and some Bar Keeper’s Friend should get that gunk off. Get the full directions here.

19. Crusty Oven

Fill a bowl with 1/2 cup of ammonia into a COMPLETELY COLD oven. The fumes will work their magic overnight. Just wipe clean the next day. 

20. Curling Iron

Just rub a piece of plain steel wool onto the metal rod.

21. Cutting Boards

Lemons and coarse salt will work on the wooden and bamboo variety. 

22. Cutting Boards

Soak cutting boards in a mixture of bleach and water in the sink for at least an hour. They’ll be good as new!

24. Dryer Ducts

If you have pets, you’ll want to do this even more often to prevent fires. It will also speed up the time it takes to dry a load. 

25. Dyson Vacuum Canister

You’ll need a can of compressed air, scissors, dish soap, and a flathead screwdriver. Get the full directions here.

26. Ear Buds

Lightly dampen a q-tip with rubbing alcohol and wipe over the surface. Just be sure to use a very small amount of rubbing alcohol, as liquids can damage electronics.

27. Engagement Ring

Make a baking soda and water paste, or just use toothpaste. 

28. Floor Grease

You’ll need a solution of 1/4 cup white vinegar, 1 tablespoon liquid dish soap, 1/4 cup washing soda, 2 gallons of very warm tap water mixed together in a bucket.

29. Front-Loading Washing Machines

You’ll need vinegar, baking soda, and a sponge. 

30. George Foreman Grill

All you need are some paper towels. Get the full directions here.

31. Glass Cooktop

You’ll need dishwashing liquid or powder, baking soda, gloves, and a rag.

32. Glass Bakeware

Crumple up a ball of aluminum foil, add a little dish soap, and scrub.

33. Glitter

Just use some play dough.

34. Glue Gun

While the gun is still hot, use a ball of aluminum foil to wipe off the nozzle without burning your fingers.

35. Granite Counters

Mix rubbing alcohol and Dawn dishwashing soap to create a granite countertop cleaner. 

36. Grease Stains in Clothing

Rub white chalk over the grease stain. It has powerful absorbing qualities.

37. Grout Mildew

Use Cellucotton Cotton Coils from the beauty store and soak them in bleach. Lay them on the mildew and mold in your tub and let it sit for a day.

38. Hair Brush

This will make a HUGE difference! You can use shampoo or dish washing detergent. Get the full instructions here

39. Jean Stains

Just use alcohol-free face cleansing wipes.

40. Kitchen Cabinet Gunk

Use vegetable oil and baking soda. Scrub with a toothbrush. 

41. Kool-Aid Stains

You’ll need a mixture of ammonia and water, and also a white towel and an iron.

42. Leather Sofas

Get scratches and scuffs out of your leather couches with shoe polish.

43. Lipstick Stains

Spray the spot with hairspray, let it set for 10 minutes, dab with a damp washcloth, and wash as normal.

44. Sneakers

Restore your old sneakers with TOOTHPASTE!

Just use a razor!
