Remove Stone Countertop Stains with Hydrogen Peroxide

You can remove most coffee or juice stains with a little hydrogen peroxide in water, plus a few drops of ammonia, according to kitchen designer Florence Perchuk. For everyday wear and tear of your stone countertops, buff away small scratches with superfine dry steel wool called "grade 0000."

Use Vinegar to Get Dishes and Glassware Spotless

Anyone living in a "hard water" area knows how difficult it can be to get the dishes come out spotless from the dishwasher. When adding the dish soap, pour a half a cup of white vinegar into the bottom of the dishwasher on every load. Your dishes will come out virtually spotless and your dishwasher will be sparkling clean... which adds to the longevity of the appliance. (Vinegar also does wonders in your washing machine when doing a load of "whites")

Shine Floors with White Vinegar

For wood floors, contractor Stephen Fanuka says, "You want to get a nice clean shine on a wood floor? Get yourself a bucket and mix nine parts warm water to one part white vinegar. This is a cheap trick I learned from an 80-year-old cleaning lady who used to make my wood floors look dazzling."

Wipe Away Wall Splatters

There are basically two kinds of stains on painted walls: oil- and waterborne. Benjamin Moore's Carl Minchew suggests taking a wet cloth or paper towel to the waterborne ones - wine, Jell-O, ketchup, mustard, even smashed mosquitoes. For oily stains - cooking grease or crayon - try using a little mild dishwashing soap mixed in with water, and then rinsing with water.

Fade Stainless-Steel Scratches with Steel Wool

To minimize a scratch on stainless steel, Adam Kamens of Amuneal Manufacturing Corp. says to try steel wool. Rub it gently in line with the grain until marks disappear. Afterwards, you can try spraying a wax-based aerosol spray, like Ball's Stainless Steel Cleaner/Polish.

Try Ketchup to Remove Tarnish

It's not just for french fries. To remove tarnish from copper and brass fixtures, pots, and pans, give ketchup a shot. Dab some onto a soft cloth and gently rub. Finish by rinsing with warm water.
