    PS: on your cabinets, you can use permanent magic marker (browns & blacks) to fix nicks.

    I tried it on the microwave hood vent over the stove and it worked great. Now I'll have to get cracking on the rest of the stuff. I'll put the metal filters in a container to soak and the scrub with an old tooth brush.

    You can put the vinegar in a bowl in the micro, boil it with water & then wipe the microwave clean.

    I saw a hint using olive oil and lemon juice to cover scratches on a piece of wood furnature. I rubbed the solution in well & then buffed w/a clean cloth. It helped cover the small scratches and shined it up beautifully! Also cleaned my kitchen cabinet

    I sprayed the WD40 onto a "VIVA" paper towel, and then wiped until the grease was gone...didn't take much elbow grease. I highlight Viva because of its consistency...being more cloth like. Cheaper to use cloth, but the Viva seemed softer than a rag and I

    WD40 also cleans your toilet bowl, sink, etc. to where it sparkles. Spray on and wipe off, then continue wiping to "polish". Helps deter dirt as well. I use it on my stainless sinks in the kitchen and the faucets in kitchen and bathroom. It works
