Appliances: To shine chrome, use vinegar or window cleaner.
If the numbers on your oven dial are worn, take a yellow crayon and rub it all over the number on the dial. Gently wipe off the excess crayon and paint with clear nail polish.
To clean splattered food from the interior of your microwave, bring 1 cup of water to a boil until steam forms on the inside walls of microwave. Remove water and wipe with damp cloth. You may have to repeat the process to get a really big job done.
To rid yellowing from white appliances try this: Mix together: 1/2 cup bleach, 1/4 cup baking soda, and 4 cups warm water. Apply with a sponge and let stand 10 minutes. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
Instead of using commercial waxes, shine with rubbing alcohol.
For quick clean-ups, rub with equal parts of warm water and household ammonia. Or, try club soda. It cleans and polishes at the same time.
Blender: Fill part way with hot water and add a drop of detergent. Cover and turn it on for a few seconds. Rinse and drain dry.
