    White Vinegar

    This mild acid is great for dissolving dirt and hard water stains and is completely safe. Particularly stubborn stains and residue can be tackled with undiluted white vinegar and this works wonders on cleaning the shower head. Simply pour a little white vinegar into a bucket or a bag and secure it to the faucet and then leave it overnight.

    White vinegar can also be poured into the toilet bowl to soak away stains and leave the toilet looking dazzling white. To clean kitchen surfaces such as countertops, simply dilute a little white vinegar with some tap water and pour it into a spray bottle. Spray the solution onto any surfaces that need cleaning, leave it for a few minutes and then wipe it away. You can also add some essential oils to the solution if you wish to give it a fresh and appealing scent.

    Baking Soda

    This miracle ingredient should be a staple in your kitchen and can be used in a wide range of different ways. Baking soda acts as a deodoriser and a mild abrasive, which means that you will be able to banish bad smells while you clean.

    Simply sprinkle a small amount of baking soda onto a damp sponge and use it to clean grimy surfaces such as sinks and the bathtub. If your bathroom is particularly dirty, make the baking soda into a paste by adding a little water and then spread it onto the dirty area. Leave the paste for ten to twenty minutes, scrub it away and then rinse with warm water. the area should now look fresh and clean once more.

    Lemon juice

    Not only is the citric acid in lemon juice great for dissolving dirt and grease, it also leaves your home with a natural fresh scent. Lemon juice is ideal for dissolving soap scum in the bathroom as well as water stains, which makes it the perfect bathroom cleaning solution.

    Another great benefit of lemon juice is that it cuts unpleasant odours and degreases areas of the kitchen and bathroom at the same time as whitening. This helps make bathroom and kitchen surfaces to look white, bright and new even if they are several years old. To get the most out of lemon juice as a cleaner, pour it into a spray bottle with a little olive oil and shake the bottle well. Spray the solution onto the areas you want to clean and watch it work its magic.

    Coffee Grounds

    Now there is one more reason to save your coffee grounds rather than throwing them away. The rough texture of coffee grounds makes them ideal to use to scrub dishes without causing them harm. This is ideal for fine china and other dishes that feature a delicate pattern. Simply place a couple of teaspoons of dry coffee grounds onto a square cleaning rag.

    Make sure that you wrap up the end of the rag securely by using a rubber band so that the coffee grounds do not spill out. You can now use your special scrubbing brush to scour pots, pans and dishes that feature stubborn stains. Another great thing about coffee grounds is that they absorb other smells. Soaking smelly cutting boards in a solution of coffee grounds will make them fresh once more, while placing coffee grounds in a bowl in the refrigerator will absorb odours.

    Green Tea

    The leaves from green tea are also great at absorbing nasty odours from the refrigerator. Simply place a few green tea leaves in a bowl in the refrigerator and they will be able to absorb even the most pungent odours such as onion and garlic.

    Rubbing green tea leaves on your hands after chopping onions and garlic is also a great natural way to get rid of their scent. Green tea leaves can even be used to clean the microwave. Since add a few green tea leaves to boiling water, allow the water to steep for a few minutes and use it to clean both the inside and outside of the microwave.

    Rice

    The coffee grinder can be one of the most difficult things to clean in the kitchen and even when it looks clean, stubborn coffee grounds can cling to hidden parts.

    Make sure your coffee grinder is always thoroughly clean by using uncooked white rice. Add this uncooked white rice to the level of the blades in the coffee grinder, run it for a few seconds and then dispose of the rise, which will be coated with the sticky coffee residue.
