Walls can take a real beating. Between fingerprints, scuff marks and food splatters, they can get pretty dirty. Scrubbing isn't necessarily great for walls because it can remove paint, but using a homemade cleaning solution for walls will help remove dirt, fingerprints and food splatters with ease. http://www.ehow.com/way_5180354_homemade-cleaning-solution-walls.html?utm_source=pinterest.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=freestyle&utm_campaign=fanpage
Seriously?! -- Vinegar works as a wood stain when you add a metal object in the mix and let it sit in a glass container for a week. A handful of pennies will produce a beautiful pale Caribbean blue stain. A wad of steel wool will give you a rich reddish hue. A combination of tea and a metal object in vinegar will produce a black stain. Log this away for later.
When painting cement the paint tends to peel or crack over time. You can keep the paint stuck to the cement longer by giving the floor an initial coat of white vinegar before you paint it. Wait until the vinegar has dried and then paint. Using this simple trick will ensure that your painted floors will shine and be beautiful longer!
