Best House Cleaning Hints

I just read another one of those fabulous hints on how to easily clean something and it worked! You know those crusty burner pans on your stove? The ones that no matter how much you clean them, they are always dirty. If you put them in a gallon freezer bag with 1/4 cup of ammonia and leave them with those fumes for 24 hours, your pans come out amazingly clean! Be sure to work with the ammonia in a well ventilated area and do not mix the ammonia with anything else. Read the warning label on the ammonia. The pans do not need to be submerged, it is merely the fumes that are needed to clean your pans. I saw that the lady who posted it on pinterest also did this with her actual cooking coils but have not had the guts to try that.
My all-time favorite cleaning tip? Put a water-soaked cleaning rag in a dirty microwave and put on high for 5 minutes. Keep an eye on the rag to be sure it doesn't dry out or catch on fire for some other reason. After the 5 minutes, wait a little bit for the rag to cool down. When it is no longer too hot to touch, use the rag to wipe the microwave. No matter how dirty it was, the dirt will wipe right off. Awesome!
