20. Fix Scratches On Wood
The easy way! I don’t know how these 2 ingredients make for such a magical solution, but it seems to work really well! And I’m thrilled that I already have them conveniently stocked in my kitchen. Simply mix together 3/4 part oil (olive oil or vegetable oil) with 1/4 part white vinegar. The ratio doesn’t have to be exact! Just eyeball it. Then, use a soft cloth or rag and rub the mixture into any imperfections or scratches on your wood furniture or cabinets. That’s it! I can’t believe the transformation on this one. I used this trick on my piano bench and kitchen cabinets– worked like a charm! They look brand new.
21. Cleaning Oil Stains On Your Driveway
This has always been my husband’s department (I’m pretty sure I’ve seen him dumping cat litter on the driveway). I guess he didn’t know about Pour-N-Restore, the oil stain remover that starts out as a liquid and dries into a powder! This way it’s easy to apply, and then once it’s dry you can just sweep it up. Very cool.
22. Removing White Marks On Furniture
How and why does this happen? Apparently, it’s steam from hot dishes that gets trapped under the finish. It happens to my dining room table when a hot paper plate is placed on it. The marks tend to fade over time, but they last for quite a while. But, there is a way to get rid of them fast! You’d be surprised at how easy the technique is.
