Tips for using common substances to help you clean glass and silverware

Put a piece of aluminium foil into a container large enough to hold the silverware item you wish to clean and add hot water and a small amount of salt. Put the silverware into the solution for a few minutes and it will begin to sparkle and shine.

Use the juice taken from a lemon when cleaning silverware and buff to a shine with a clean soft cloth. You should dip cotton buds into lemon juice to get into all the nooks and crannies of hard to clean areas and store silverware in airtight plastic containers.

Air freshener sprayed and wiped on a mirror will leave it clean and sparkling as well as smelling nice.

Dry glass with old newspapers, this not only leaves them smear free but if you put a little bit of furniture polish on it, it stops mirrors steaming up in bathrooms.

If you want to save money when cleaning your windows buy a cheap brand used for car windscreens and pour it into a spray bottle, it works the same as top window cleaning brands but costs a lot less.

Mix a 1/3 cup of white vinegar, 1/3 cup of rubbing alcohol and 1/3 cup of no-suds ammonia in a spray bottle and top up with water. Use this mixture for any type of glass including mirrors.
