How to Remove Burned Milk From a Pan
What you need:
• a wooden spoon or similarly non-offensive scraping implement
• dish soap
• a heating surface, like a stove
What you do:
1. Sprinkle the bottom of the pot with a layer of salt.
2. Add warm water to saturate the salt.
3. Let it rest for 20 minutes or until you remember it.
4. Scrape the bottom of the pan with a spoon, scrubby, spatula–whatever is scrapy but won’t damage your pot.
5. Rinse out the pot.
6. If it’s clean. You’re finished. Have a cookie.
7. If it’s not clean, put a couple inches of water and several drops of dish soap in the bottom of the pan.
8. Heat it to boiling on the stove and then simmer on low heat for about an hour. This reeks to high heaven in my opinion (maybe not quite that high), so open the windows and pass out the barf bags.
Removing Cooking Oil Stains from Clothes
Tip 1: original dishwashing liquid will remove some grease or cooking oil stains even after they've been through the dryer.
Tip 2: Use hair shampoo to get cooking oil or grease stains out.
Tip 3: The key to getting out oily and greasy stains is to wash clothing with the hottest water that is safe for the fabric.
1. Remove as much excess oil as possible with a dull knife or spoon.
2. Apply 3-5 minutes to allow it to go completely through the fabric.
3. Use liquid detergent to rub through the stained fabric.
4. Allow the garment to sit for a few minutes.
5. Wash in the hottest water safe for the fabric. Check tags to determine what water temperature to use for washing.

Oven: Reduce the unpleasant smell left from oven cleaners by baking some citrus peelings on low heat.
Oven cleaning: To reduce the need, line the bottom of your oven with foil cut to size. The foil catches drips and grease and can be easily replaced when dirty.
Washing clothes: Hang clothes as soon as you can after washing to reduce creasing.
Coffee Grinder: Grind up a cup or so of rice in a coffee grinder to clean the grinder and sharpen its blades
Fish or Spoiled Food Odor: Place a bowl of white vinegar on the counter for a few hours. The odor will disappear for good.
Stains in Plastic Storage Containers: Use a baking soda paste (baking soda and water) and rub into the stain. You can then rinse with vinegar (optional) and wash normally. Another method is to place container outside on a nice sunny day and the sun actually bleaches the stain out. To avoid stains in the first place, spray container with cooking spray before putting things in it that stain
If you have stains on clothes from medicated creams rub stain firmly with a baby wipe. Then pre-treat and wash as usual.
Empty ketchup of mustard containers is great for decorating cakes or cookies.
To unclog plugged the drain, try using a cup of salt mixed with a cup of baking soda – no liquid. Pour the dry solution into the drain, followed by a pot of boiling water.
