Who knew bread can be useful outside the stomach. Mistakenly dropping glass and breaking them can happen to anyone and sweeping every shard especially the tiny ones can be difficult. The easy way out is to dampen a piece of bread and press it on the areas where the fragments are and pick those tiny pieces that you may have missed.

Shaving cream as a cleaning agent

To clean a mirror until it gleams, apply shaving cream to the mirror and clean with a paper towel. This trick can also be used for glasses and car windows.

Use Lemon to clean microwave

Microwaves can be quite difficult to clean because of the food residue and grease from all the meals put in there.
Simply cut a lemon in half and squeeze one half into half a cup of water and add the remaining half into the cup of water. Set it in the microwave until it boils, the steam will fill the microwave and help to clean the microwave easily while the odours that might remain will be dispersed by the scent of the lemon.
