Have you ever felt frustrated that you can’t make old or well-loved things look and feel as good as new again? Well, the chances are there’s a way to overcome this problem — you just didn’t know the secret.

 

Chopping boards

Clean the board with a sponge soaked in a mixture of lemon juice and salt.

Copper pots

Copper pots are considered to be the best kind available for cooking. To help them look brand new again, use salt and vinegar. Just sprinkle the surface with the salt, then pour a little bit of vinegar over it and rub with a hard sponge.

Plates

It’s easy to get rid of scratches on plates. Just use a polish designed specially for use on porcelain.

Baking trays

You can rid baking trays of burnt fat by applying a paste made of hydrogen peroxide and ordinary soda. Spread the paste on the baking tray and leave it for 30 minutes, then rinse.

Carpets

You will need a solution made of one part vinegar and two parts water. Mix the water and vinegar together in a spray bottle, then spray on the stain and cover with a damp cloth. Turn on the iron, set it to steam mode, and place it over the cloth for 30 seconds.

Cast-iron pans

You will need a disinfectant which you can use on your stove and some gloves, garbage bags and white vinegar. Spread a thick layer of the disinfectant on the old cast-iron pan. To make sure it doesn’t dry out, put it in a garbage bag and tie it up tightly. Leave the pan in the bag for 1-2 days, and then rinse off the disinfectant. Then apply a new layer of the same liquid and again put it in a tightly knotted bag for one day. Then wash off the dirt with hot water. Now, soak the pan in a mixture of warm water and vinegar (1: 1) for an hour and scrub the surface with a scouring pad. Let the pan dry. Preheat oven to 250°C and a place the pan in it for an hour. Then carefully remove the hot frying pan and apply a layer of olive oil all over it. The hot metal will absorb the required amount of oil, then you can wipe off the residue with a clean, dry cloth and again, put the pan in the oven — this time upside down. After 15 minutes, take it out, wipe it with a cloth and place it in the oven again for an extra 15 minutes. Repeat the process two more times.
