  1. Dishwashing Liquid

Dropped tomato pasta or ketchup on your new shirt? We have all been here and the stain can ruin a white shirt. Easiest thing is to apply a few drops of dishwashing liquid diluted with water and rub the fabric gently. After a few minutes rinse, you will see the stain has disappeared and your shirt is saved. Now just wash it with regular detergent to make sure the stain doesn’t reappear.

  1. Baking Soda

Run out of dishwashing powder just when you need it? Don’t worry because if you have baking soda in the cupboard, you’re saved. Simply make a paste of the soda with a few drops of water and use this to clean your pots and pans.
