Clean your fridge
You should clean your fridge every three to six months to keep it looking (and smelling) good, but elbow grease alone doesn’t always do the trick. To lift stubborn food stains and smells, scrub the shelves with 1/2 cup of salt mixed with two liters of warm water. Here are more tips on cleaning out your fridge.
Sanitize cutting boards
Countless studies have found that plastic and wood cutting boards harbor germs deep inside the grooves made by your knife. Luckily, you can keep bacteria at bay by adding one easy salt-scrub step to your washing routine. For plastic boards that you use to handle meat, sprinkle bleach and salt on the board, scrub it with a stiff brush, and rinse with hot water. Wood boards can be sanitized using salt, rubbed in with a lemon wedge, then rinsed clean. Learn which is better, plastic or wood?

Gently rub the paste onto the ring with a soft cloth or sponge and work it over the spot until it’s gone. Then, restore the luster of your wood with furniture polish. If that doesn’t work, here are 5 more things to try that might help remove those rings.
