There are many ways to ensure you have a cleaner home. One way is to employ some pretty unusual (some might say “odd”) cleaning tricks.

Here are a few of our favorite unusual cleaning tricks that actually do the trick.

Drink (we mean use) vodka. Vodka can be used on a soft cleaning cloth to shine up porcelain, chrome or glass.

Ice, ice baby: Dab an ice cube on chewing gum to remove it from the carpet and let it sit for about a minute. The gum will become hard and stiff, enabling you to pull it off easily.

Mirror, mirror. Clean a bathroom mirror with shaving cream and wipe it away with a cloth. It will defog the mirror after showers.

To juice or not to juice. Lemon juice is great for use on stains and rust.

Brusha, brusha, brusha. Clean chrome sink fixtures by putting a thin layer of toothpaste over the faucet and then wipe it with a wet sponge.
