Do you have teacups that look like this?
Do you want them to look like this instead?
Then go and get yourself some of this!
(Those would be denture cleaning tablets...) Simply drop one, or part of one, tablet into the cup filled with water, and let it sit and effervesce. When the bubbles stop, wash as normal!
There are so many of these great little homemade tips and tricks out there! And they are so hard to remember unless you find them just when you need them... I picked that particular trick up from my mother-in-law.
She also taught me this one:
Out of copper polish?
Need to shine a something copper?
Sprinkle half a lime with salt and use that to scrub your copper item, then wash and buff dry!
Toothpaste is used for all sorts of things in my house- but it has to be paste, not gel. I use it as blemish cream, just dot it on and leave it overnight.
And as silver polish, for jewelry it's great in a pinch! Just put some on your fingers, smear all over the jewelry, scrub a bit (with your fingers) and watch that black tarnish come off. Rinse, dry and sparkle!
What tips and tricks do you know and use?
