Green Cleaning Tips and Recipes from D.F. Dwyer Insurance Agency5 Spring Cleaning Tips with 5 Simple Pantry Items: Lemon, Vinegar, Baking Soda, Coffee Filter & Dryer Sheet

  1. FAUCETS: Rub with ½ lemon, the citric acid removes water stains.
  2. MICROWAVE: Squeeze juice of 1 lemon into bowl with ½ cup water and drop in the rinds. Microwave for 3 minutes and let stand 5 minutes without opening the door while the trapped steam loosens the grime.
  3. COOKTOP: Place a wet dryer sheet on burnt-on residue, wait at least 15 minutes, then wipe away.
  4. STAINLESS STEEL SINKS: Wet sink and sprinkle with baking soda, scrub with a sponge – for more abrasion, add a pinch of salt to the baking soda.
  5. TELEVISION & COMPUTER SCREENS: The fiber in coffee filters is gentle enough to rub away fingerprints, smudges and dust.
