That fresh, polished look

Homemade window cleaner
Add one tablespoon of cornstarch to one-third gallon of lukewarm water. Wet a rag with the solution, remove excess water and wipe down as if using a store-bought glass cleaner. Dry with a soft cloth or paper towel.
Use a used dryer sheet to dust computer and TV screens. It keeps the static down and reduces the frequency of dusting.

Try cleaning your fireplace with a cool mixture of one-half cup of vinegar, one tablespoon ammonia, and one gallon of water. For best results, wipe with a cotton cloth or newspapers.
