Cleaning tips.

Post by Maggy » Wed Feb 28, 2007 6:47 pm

To clean your kettle of limestone-Put about a couple of tablespoons of white vinegar in the kettle and enough water to the minimum level, and bring to the boil.It works, I've tried it. For cleaning your stainless steel covered kitchen furniture-ie-cookers,microwaves,etc, use Johnsons baby oil on a soft cloth. It shines a treat. :)

Oh Jojo, I've got some of those facial cleanses that are like baby wipes. Maybe they'll work too.:)
