Homemade Brass Cleaner
If you have a tarnished brass piece, cleaning it depends on whether it is lacquered or not. Lacquered brass can be cleaned just by wiping with the use of a damp cloth, but cleaning non-lacquered ones requires more elbow grease.
If you want to clean non-lacquered cabinet handles, you should dampen a sponge with lemon juice or vinegar, then sprinkle on salt. Gently polish over the surface. Afterward, you must rinse it thoroughly with water and immediately dry with a clean, soft cloth.
Eco-friendly Marble Cleaner
If you want to create an eco-friendly marble cleaner, mix the water and detergent to clean stone countertops naturally. Use a sponge over marble and rinse thoroughly to discard any soap residue. Polish with a soft cloth, and do not let the marble air-dry. Caution: Never use lemon, vinegar, or any other acidic cleaner on granite or marble surfaces because it will eat into the stone.
DIY Grease Cleaner
To help remove tough grime, you can use sudsy ammonia because it has detergent in it. You can clean your oven grills and hoods by soaking a mop or sponge into the solution and start cleaning over the surface, then rinse with clear water.
Water Ring Remover
You might accidentally left a water ring, but not on unfinished wood, lacquer, or antiques. If you have, you must dampen a cloth with water, add the toothpaste mixture, and rub with the grain to shine over the spot. Then take a dry cloth and wipe it off. Use another soft fabric for a final shine. Polish as you usually would.
Rust stains on enamel or porcelain tubs and sinks? You need a heavy duty scrub! Good thing that there’s a recipe for that! To make this solution, settle the lemon into the borax and rub the surface, then rinse thoroughly. Keep in mind that this is not safe for granite or marble.

You can treat badly stained garments by mixing hot water, powdered dishwasher detergent, and liquid chlorine bleach into stainless steel, plastic, or enamel bowl (not aluminum, okay?).

Scented All-purpose Cleaner
