Let’s start with an easy one – the kettle. Pour equal parts water and vinegar into the kettle before turning it on and letting it come to a half boil. This ensures the inside gets totally clean of rust spots as well as lingering smells. Repeat as necessary to make your kettle good as new!

What about that bathtub that just won’t get white again, though? Simply mix two teaspoons of baking soda and two teaspoons of water and rub the paste over the problem areas of the tub. Let the mixture sit for ten minutes, then pour 2 ounces of bleach and 2 ounces of vinegar over everything. Let the chemicals sit for 30 minutes, drain the tub, and rinse thoroughly. Your tub will be good as new!

Do you have some scorched pans due to a failed cooking experiment? Don’t throw them away, just add a handful of salt to the pan and add water.Let the pans soak for 10 minutes in the salt water, and easily wipe away the charred food stains!

Speaking of kitchen mishaps, have you ever dropped an egg on the floor? a handful of salt can help with this mess as well! Simply sprinkle the salt over the mess and leave it for 15 minutes. The salt will help absorb and dry out the egg, so you will be able to pick it up with a paper towel much more easily than before.
