1. PLEDGE WOODEN FURNITURE SPRAY USES
Pledge furniture spray comes in various forms. In this article, we’ll be using the Pledge wooden furniture spray. If your wooden cabinets, genuine leather sofa, or your granite tiles are dull and looking pale. Pledge is really the best cleaner for these.

4. CLEANING A BURNT POT WITH VINEGAR
My son loves to make banana porridge. In doing so somehow my pots are always getting burnt. He keeps reheating the porridge so the milk and sugar always got burnt, sticking to the bottom of my pots.
When this occurs once I almost threw out my pot thinking it was totaled. Using the same tips I give to my readers. I decided to pour vinegar into the pot and soak it for 48 hours.
Using a ball of steel wool and Dawn dish soap I was able to scrub my poy back to new. Vinegar is just incredible! Steel wool is those tiny balls of steel strips.
They are found in supermarkets in the household soap aisle. Only use steel wool to scrub stainless steel pots as scrubbing painted pots may remove the paint.

No time to wash the trash cans? These can be smelly from all the degrading waste we place in them. Your trash can should be washed and scrutinized as often as needed.

I simply place new dryers sheets in the bottom of the trash can before replacing the bag. I also use lavender-scented trash bags that also disguises the stinky odors well.

I used to soak my pots ever so often. Food got to stick to your pots easily. If you’re like me I don’t like having pot fill with water hanging around in my kitchen.
However, scrubbing burnt food with the wrong scrubber is almost worthless. Using a roll of steel wool when you’re doing the dishes will remove baked-on food and any stickiness from pots and plates fast.
This will save you the trouble of soaking and having to return a few hours later to wash again. Do it with steel wool right there on the spot and be done with the kitchen.
