Fighting Oil With Oil
Believe it or not, you can actually remove greasy buildup on your stove hood and stovetop with oil. That sounds weird we know, but apparently it works great. You just drop a couple of drops of mineral oil (or you can actually use vegetable oil) onto a paper towel and rub it across the greasy gunk. The oil removes the gunk without the use of harsh chemicals. Once you’re done removing the greasy mess, just go over it with an all-purpose cleaner if you want or you can leave it – the oil makes it really shiny and helps to make cleanups in the future really easy.
Clean Mini Blinds With Vinegar

You just mix together equal parts of water and vinegar in a bowl and then don an old sock (slip it on your hand not your feet). Just dip the sock in the vinegar and water mixture and then run it over your blinds. You can also use a second old sock to wipe away the dampness after you have cleaned each slat in the blind.
