Mixed with water and a few drops of your favorite essential oil for fragrance, vinegar becomes a quick and handy go-to cleanser for various surfaces in the home.Lemons - similar to vinegar, this fruit has antiseptic properties thanks to its acidity. It's mighty effective against mold, and it leaves a zesty scent behind, to boot. Liquid sprays and cleansers can be made out of its juice, but its peel also comes in useful. Rubbing lemon peel over metal clears it up and gives it a good shine.Rock salt - Rock salt is often used to scour away grease and leftover food debris stuck to cooking and eating utensils.
