  53. I like trying new products and I think the Zap Cloth proclaiming to be streak free, spot free, and lint free sounds awesome!

  54. I like that you can clean with just water.

  55. I have a “cleaning” problem that just got pulled from the Dryer! My husband got his light tan jeans from the dryer, & on the bottom right pantleg about ⅓ from the leg are fairly “big” OILY SPOTS! The pants didn’t have anything on them when put in the washer, & nothing when we put them “into” the dryer.
    None of the other items in the same dryer load have ANY spots or marks. I don’t know where to start to clean & remove the “Oily Spots!” I need H.E.L.P!!!

  56. Love your hints! But I need help! I have a white smooth top stove and I have dark stains that I cannot get cleaned off. I have used cleaner, scrubbed with everything I can think of and used the razor but the stain remains. Any help for me????? Thanks!

  57. When you clean your bakeware with baking soda and peroxide, do you have to let it set before you clean it off?
