Use a squeegie (window scraper?) down your shower walls and doors after having a shower, this will make sure all soap and water is off and will not leave water marks on the glass or tiles.

Hi Coll...I have found the best thing to remove rust is the following-6 Tablespoons Salt and 2 tablespoons Lemon juice.Mix together.Apply paste to rusted area with a dry cloth and rub.Rinse and dry...also works great on rusted bicycle handlebars and spokes on your bike...

Thanks Theresa, I'll give this a try. It is a lot of hard work getting all this rust off.

Coll are you going to put a primer on the milk can???

Anyone like the scent of Lemon or Orange...Have I got a tip for you...
Clear the air with this homemade air freshener. Just cut an orange in half, remove pulp, and fill the peel with Salt. It will provide a pleasant, aromatic scent anywhere in your home.Do the same with a Lemon,mine have lasted almost a week...

Help cut odours off of your wooden cutting board, simply by pouring a generous amount of Salt directly on the board. Rub lightly with a damp cloth. Wash in warm, sudsy water...Rinse well...

Don't fret over spilled eggs. Just pour Salt on top of the spill to cover the eggs. Then wipe the eggs up with a paper towel...

A fine wine is hard to appreciate when it stains your nicest shirt. So use Salt to help remove wine stains from cotton fabric. Immediately pour enough salt directly on the stain to soak up the liquid. Immerse the fabric for 1/2 hour in cold water. Launder as usual...

Remove blood stains from clothing by putting salt on the blood stain and soaking in cold water...launder as you usually would...

Remove red wine stains from your carpet by blotting up the red wine and clean using white wine.

Old stockings and pantyhose can be used as scrubbers for the sink, bath tub and basins, not too harsh and scratchy

Stocking/pantyhose are static so can be stretched over the birstle end of a broom or mop and used like a swiffer. Simply take off and throw away or rinse and dry and keep for another time.

Salt also removes beetroot and wine stains from tablecloths. As soon as liquid is spilled, cover with salt, then when ready shake off and launder in cold water.

Cleaning "hard to fit hand into" glass vases and jars - after rinsing put a spoonful of uncooked rice, or dried beans, in the jar/vase and shake, then empty and rinse. All stains and marks should be gone.

To clean a "George Foreman" type grill, after use, close onto a very wet cloth and leave till it cools, then just wipe away easily. The steam loosens all the grilled-on mess.
