My favorite magazine is Real Simple. If you have never read one you better pick up a copy!
They are known for their segments on new uses for old things. This particular article is based on cleaning with objects you would have never thought to clean with, and they honestly make your life much easier!
My favorite one that I use is to take a dryer sheet to the glass shower door and in no time flat you have gotten rid of your soap scum!
Do you have any tricks of the trade you want to share?
