My Vinyl floors had gotten so grimy over the years, that I thought I was going to have to replace them. Then I found out about a neat tip, that got them sparkling clean and it was so
easy! I used a cleaning product that most people probably already have, but not one made for floors! Want to know what it is? It's Scrubbing Bubbles! I have the full details on my blog. http://www.graphicsfairy-diy.com/2013/01/my-...

I discovered this when I came to take care of parents....the kitchen cabinets were so grimy!!
I have used in shower stalls and tubs and the glass surrounds for soap scum...just spray and wipe down with a scrubbie(old shower poof) and rinse. For the cabinets I had to use the bubbles, a nail brush and follow up some times, but a lot cheaper than replacing or sanding and re-painting. Try also a spray with Windex( I make my own) for a bit of shine.
After years of staring at my plain white appliances, I got bored. And when I get bored, I get a little crazy. So I decided to paint them with one $10 pint of Rustoleum enamel paint in
Regal Red. It took three coats over a weekend, but they look amazing! I followed it up with some spray on poly to help protect it. It's been nearly a year and no chips yet. I used a silver paint pen to add my settings. What I should have done there was placed tracing paper over the knob prongs and meticulously copied my settings, because I left a lot out. Then I could have added a vinyl transfer or used a fine tip paint pen. I may scrape off the paint around the dials and redo it later down the line. Otherwise it was a cheap and easy update!
