Just a few swipes of full strength vinegar on a clean cloth will get your computer keyboard as clean as a whistle. Shut off your computer before you start, and use a cotton swab if you have trouble getting into small places.

 

5. Piano keys

If you have a piano at home, you can get any fingerprints off the keys with a mixture of two cups of water and a half cup of white vinegar. Use a clean cloth that has been squeezed almost dry and wipe away.

 

6. Window blinds

Equal parts hot water and white vinegar to get your window blinds sparkling clean. You can either use a spare pair of gloves or put those mismatched socks to good use and run your hands across each blind quickly and easily.

 

7. Unclog your drain
