    I put a capful of bleach in the toilet and let it sit for a couple of hours. Hardly any scrubbing.

    Dampen a dryer sheet and use it on any chrome-like surface like your faucets. It really removes the built-up soap and scum and makes it shine beautifully.

    Not exactly household, or cleaning, but useful nonetheless:

    And I used this one to fold a fitted sheet, but it took me ages to figure it out.

    Not exactly a "household" tip, but a couple of months ago, there was a video making the rounds on FB on how to remove ice from your car windshield easily. IIRC, they used a mix of 2/3 parts rubbing alcohol, 1/3 part water in a spray bottle. The solution was sprayed onto an iced over widshield, and the ice dissolved immediately.

    Kitty's cleaning tip #1 - Make him do it. (In my dreams....)

    Blocked bathroom drains - empty hair removal cream down the plug hole, leave for five minutes and then pour a kettle full of boiling water down there. Usually works like a charm if it's hair and stuff that's caused the blockage.

    Years ago, I got this book called Home Comforts (I think). It had a lot of great tips that I follow to this day. It's a huge book. i love it.

    Yeah. I necro'd an old thread. Me and the tile grout in my bathroom have been having standoffs for the last few weekends. I'm going to look for this ZEP stuff too, but in the meantime, I've used these things each week:

    1st Weekend - Borax
    2nd Weekend - Vinegar and Baking Soda
    3rd Weekend - Kaboom! Bath, Tub and Tile Cleaner

    This coming weekend, I'll be trying Cream of Tartar and Hydrogen Peroxide mixed together.

    Each one has contributed to the removal of these nasty stains due to lime scale and mineral deposits but it takes several applications to truly get them white again.

    What about CLR whenever mineral deposits build up, then a weekly hard surface cleaner with bleach for whiteness?
