Restoring your showerhead to its full shine is not as hard as you think it would be!Pour white vinegar into a small plastic bag, and fasten it around your showerhead with a rubberband. Let it set for about an hour before removing. Wipe down with a cloth and you have yourself a showerhead that is as good as new!

2. Cookie Sheets

Don’t just bring soap and water into the fight when combating the grime covering your cookie sheets. Mix 1/4 cups of baking soda with enough hydrogen peroxide to make a thick-like paste. Rub it into the surface of your cookie trays. Wait a few minutes so that the mixture will take effect, then wipe of to have cookie trays that are nearly brand new.

3. Cutting Boards

One good rinse will not be enough to get the vegetable odors off your cutting board. Clean your cutting boards with the most natural of things- lemons. Lemon’s acidic properties are just the thing you will need to make all those bad odors go away. Cut a lemon in half and use it as a scrubber.

The next time you do an all-bedroom clean up day, sprinkle baking soda across the surface of your mattress. Let it sit for a few hours so that the baking soda will soak up the bad odors. Vacuum off the baking soda afterwards and you’re all set!
