Coca-Cola® isn’t just a great beverage, its mild acidity makes it useful for commode cleaning purposes. If you have lime scale and you’re tired of paying high prices for cleaning products, try this trick. COKE® costs less than 50 cents per liter and is nontoxic. One can of COKE® contains 12 ounces and works great as a cleaner due to the carbonic and phosphoric acid it contains. Simply pour over the lime scale, let set for 10 minutes, and you’ll easily scrub it all away!
Bagless vacuums are great, but most people only empty the canister and often forget to clean the filters. Plugged filters lead to an overworked motor and sooner than later the motor burns out. Take the vacuum out to the shop or garage, pull out and empty the receptacle, and then remove the filter. To clean the filter, use your shop vacuum’s nozzle to remove all the dust and debris, being careful not to tear the filter. You should see a significant difference in pick up power.

I like to use Pour-N-Restore, the oil stain remover that starts out as a liquid and dries into a powder! It's easy to apply; simply pour on the stain, and once it's dry just sweep it up. It works great.
I pay extra attention to bathrooms and always remember to look up to check out fans, vents, etc. Looking up, you will more than likely see dust. Make the cleaning easy using a blast of canned air. You will find that some brands have "straw" attachments to reach small crevices. This also works great on return air vents too!

Wipe down the refrigerator with white vinegar to prevent mildew. Once clean, put vanilla extract on a cotton ball and set inside a small container like a shot glass. Place it inside the refrigerator, to the back of the top shelf, to help eliminate odors.
