    A friend turned me on to "Krud Kutter" a while back. It cleans just about everything.

    What do you use?

    For decades, dear old mom used regular Wisk diluted in water for just about any cleaning task. From bathrooms to the car to pots and pans. Worked like a charm. I'm not sure if they make the same product as they used to.

    Ammonia ( diluted) used with an old toothbrush really cuts thru kitchen grease buildup.
    Best to use when you can open some windows.

    Ammonia is great for cleaning gold, rings ,bracelets,...just drop in full strength..you can actually watch the crude come off....then rinse under the faucet and let dry on a towel.
    Learned that tip from a Jeweler.

    WD 40 or Avon SSS for tar, glue, price tag sticker removal.

    Diluted bleach in a spray bottle for mildew /mold removal..spray...hose off.

    CLR is your friend too.

    mr clean magic erasers are a god send to get dog slobber off the walls.
    and ceiling
    and tv screen
    and windows

    they are also great for wiping down the pool liner when you open it up for the year


    other than that, speedball cleans EVERYTHING

    1. White vinegar - took a while to get used to it, but we clean almost everything with it.
    2. Dilute vodka in water - I forget the ratio (7:1 maybe?), but it works great.

    Anything from the Dollar Store. All that stuff is seriously wack. Great quality for a cleaner.

    oxyclean is great for cleaning carboys after fermenting beer in them.
    **** is magic.

    home depot brand Zep scrubbing bubbles is great for cleaning my DE razor.
