Cleaning with Condiments



You’ve heard of cleaning with baking soda, cleaning with lemon, even cleaning with toothpaste, but cleaning with condiments? That’s right. Read on!

Ketchup for Copper
Apply the ketchup to a rag and rub onto tarnished copper or brass cookware. Let sit for a minute and then buff clean and rinse. The acidity of the ketchup will help lift and remove tarnish and return pots to their shiny state.

Don’t Hold the Mayo
Sure, the thought of slathering your household wears with mayonnaise may be less-than-appealing, but some people swear by it. Did your tot get a little carried away while coloring? Remove crayon marks from wood furniture by rubbing a dab of mayo on the mark. Let it sit for five minutes and wipe it away with a damp cloth.

Dress Your Home
Oil and vinegar aren’t just for your salad. Mix oil and lemon juice two parts to one and use the solution to give furniture and extra polish. Vinegar can do everything from cleaning your dishwasher to helping to remove wallpaper. Clean the microwave by combining 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup distilled vinegar in a microwave-safe mug or bowl. Microwave for 2 minutes and wipe clean. The vinegar helps to lift baked on food and stains.
