  1. Use lemon to clean the microwave. Whether at home or in the office pantry, a microwave serves a lot of use, but it is often neglected as far as cleaning the inside is concerned. One easy trick you can do is to microwave a bowl of lemons and water. This will make it easier to get rid of any gunk that has formed in one swipe.

  2. Organize cables with ease. Cable clutter is far too common, whether at home or in the office. This can be a hazard so it is important to address them quickly. There are many items you can re-use to keep cables organized such as tissue paper rolls, old CD spindles, and bread tags, among others.

  3. Make your own cleaning solution. If you find a buildup of dust and grime on your appliances, such as your coffee maker, you can clean that with an easy homemade solution. Combine water and cream of tartar until it forms into a thick paste. Use that paste to wipe off any dust buildup to make items look squeaky clean and brand new once more.

  4. Clean chopping boards and kitchen utensils with kosher salt and lemon. The use of cleaning chemicals and harsh solutions should be avoided when it comes to your kitchen items. To ensure that you can clean your items safely, use kosher salt and lemon.

  5. Clean your furniture or upholstery with baking soda. Baking soda is another practical item at home that you can use to clean a soiled sofa or other furniture with upholstery.

  6. Keep your window blinds clean with a vinegar and water solution. Get rid of that ugly buildup of dust and grime on your window blinds. Mix equal parts of vinegar and water, then use an old sock or any unused fabric to wipe the blinds clean using the combined solution.

  7. Mineral oil can clean any dusty surface. Another easy solution for getting rid of any dirt and grime on appliances, or surfaces at home or in the office is mineral oil. You only need to apply a small amount of the oil onto a piece of clothing. Use that piece of cloth to wipe down surfaces for effortless cleaning. This is especially useful when you are trying to clean residues on your oven, range hood, or stovetop.

  8. Fight hard water stains with vinegar. There is another use for vinegar that you can try at home--to eliminate any hard water stains. Dealing with these stains can be cumbersome because they do not completely go away. You can clean your water faucets using paper towels or rags that have been soaked in vinegar. All you have to do is wrap the towel or rag around the faucet and leave it on for an hour or so. After that, the hard water stains will be gone!

  9. Use baking soda to clean your carpet. Do you have oil stains on your carpet or any spills that have left their mark? An easy solution for that is to use baking soda. Simply pour an adequate amount of the baking soda on the stained surface. Leave it on for a few minutes and when you wipe it off, it will be restored to its original state.

  10. Clean ceiling and floor vents at the dishwasher. Keeping your vents clean can help to improve the airflow inside your home or any space. A quick way to remove any dust buildup is to run the vents through a rinse cycle on the dishwasher. This will help to get rid of dust and other particles very quickly and with ease.

  1. Keep your stainless steel appliances looking brand new with cream of tartar. This item is common in the pantry, which makes it highly accessible if you want to restore the appearance of your stainless steel appliances. You can brush it directly onto the surface of those appliances in order to make them look new again.

  2. Clean those keyboards with the use of a toothbrush. Dirt and dust could settle on the spaces in between each key on your computer keyboard. Make sure you get rid of those dust particles by using an old toothbrush. Run the bristles through every nook and cranny of your keyboard to take out any excess dust. This will make your computer clean and eliminate dust that could form allergens.

  3. Use a squeegee to get rid of dirt or hair on the carpet. You can mist the carpet lightly with water and then use the squeegee. This will make it easy for hair to come off the carpet surface.
