Household Hints - Save time, save money, save energy

An inexpensive and quick method of freshening up your home is to apply vanilla extract to a cloth and wipe on lights in various rooms throughout the house. A fresh, clean aroma is released when you turn on the lights. 

Wipe bronze objects with a little shoe polish or vegetable oil to maintain a sheen. To clean, dust bronze with a soft cloth. Clean intricate areas with a cotton swab. Apply turpentine to remove any marks, then polish.
