adding few more ...........

Clean the Dishwasher:
One cup of orange juice crystals (Tang) added to the wash cycle of the dishwasher will help remove brown stains on the inside of the dishwasher. (Or us ascorbic acid crystals)

Crayon on wallpaper:
To remove crayon marks from wallpaper, wipe the mark with a paste made of cornstarch and water

Drain Opener:
Dissolve 1/2 cup baking soda and 1 cup vinegar in boiling water and pour down the drain. Continue to flush with hot tap water until the clog breaks.

Add lemon for bathroom sparkle:
If water deposits are making the bathroom fixtures dull , rub them with half a lemon and watch them shine.

Clean Brass:
To clean brass combine one-quarter cup of salt in enough vinegar to dissolve the salt. Add flour to make a paste.

Softer bristle Brushes:
If your pure bristles paint brushes are stiff, boil them in vinegar for 30 minutes. Allow brushes to cool, remove from pan and let dry. Bristles will be nice and flexible.

Keep the dampness out:
Fill a coffee can with charcoal briquettes and place in the back of your closet - it'll attract moisture so your clothes stay dry and never smell musty.

Paint:
To reduce the smell of paint fumes, place a chopped-up onion in a bucket of water and place in the room being painted.

Candles:
Store candles in the freezer and they will burn slower than candles stored at room temperature.

Food Stains:
Remove food stains on your hands by rubbing them on the cut side of a potato.
