Use boiling water and two teabags to clean hardwood floors. The tannic acid in tea creates a beautiful shine. Let two teabags steep in the boiling water for a few minutes. Pour the tea into a bucket. Take a soft cloth and wring it out in the tea. The cloth merely needs to be damp, not soaked. This will enable the floor to dry quickly. Wash the floor and be ready to be amazed by the sheen... and no sticky or oily residue! So cool, must try!

Sarah Lentz: "Ok, I just tried this and it seriously did work. I did it twice on a burner that's had scorch marks for a year or more and they're gone! For anyone as OCD about cleaning as I am, this is a must! I would be prepared to do it at least twice, more if you've got bad burns. This really works!!!"
Jet-Dry? You don't need that chemical-y stuff! Fill your dishwasher's rinse aid compartment with good old-fashioned white vinegar and I guarantee your dishes will be sparkling. Great tip! jet dry is sooo expensive!
