Some say this works just fine: make cleaning your computer keys simple by sliding strip of tape between the rows of your keyboard. Press with a pen or pencil so the strip goes deeper and reaches all the tiny particles you want to remove. The adhesive side will remove dust and crumbs by pulling it up.
If the fridge gets that awful food mixture smell, then turn to one of the many solutions available to remove the odor. Take a cotton ball and dampen with vanilla extract then rub the inside of the ice box or of the whole fridge. You can also leave the soaked cotton ball inside for a while to absorb all the smells.
And since we mentioned the olfactory sense, after chopping onions, scrub your hands with salt and a splash of vinegar to eliminate the smell. It is also vinegar you can count on to clean a coffeemaker or a tea kettle by making a pot using a mixture of water and vinegar. Follow with several cycles of water to rinse.
How many times didn’t you get angry when trying to remove a label stuck to a product, but ended up scraping the rest of it which wouldn’t come off? Well, the solution is pretty simple here, too, and it’s the vinegar again coming to our help. Paint with several coats of vinegar using a cotton ball, let it sit for five minutes, then wipe away and the sticker will come off right away.
This we didn’t know, we have to admit it: repair hardwood floors or furniture by rubbing shelled nuts into shallow scratches. It appears their natural oils help hide the flaws.
