Four Top Secret Cleaning Agents

by BrightNest
Some cleaning items – like soap and detergent – get all of the attention, but did you know that there are other top-secret cleaning agents in your home? These four items have hidden housework potential:
Coca-Cola. Coca-Cola is a classic drink (pun intended), but that’s not all it’s good for! Next time you burn rice (or anything else) and it sticks to the bottom of a pan, pour an entire can of Coke into the pan while it’s still warm.
Toothpaste. Do you brush your teeth? Nice. Then you can also clean your leather shoes and sneakers! Grab a tube of gel-free toothpaste, a soft cloth and any scuffed or dirty kicks.
Mayonnaise. When you think “mayo,” you probably picture sandwiches and potato salad, but the condiment can also erase drink rings like a boss.
Denture Tablets. Look up. Are your light fixtures covered with dirt and dust? These fixtures are a pain to clean, especially if they’re intricate. Enter: denture tablets.

    Some one told me once that coke can be used in a toilet overnight to get rid of stains. I don't know. I've never tried it.

    How about cleaning your cookware that you accidently burned & you thought it was gone forever. Empty the contents out & pour coke in. Heat it & then let it set for the day. Your pot should be sparkling clean.
