The computer cleaning one is great!

And- here is a free one. To clear out some stress - take three deep breaths. Pause between each one and say "getting rid of some stress here" silently.

another tip for cleaning off baked on stuff in pots is fabric softener--the liquid kind. Pour a little in the pot, enough to cover the bottom add water and let sit overnight. It totally loosens the yuck off the pot.

Cool tips.... I hate cleaning silver, that sounds so much easier. Can't wait to use them.

Thank you for tips! I do the baking soda and vinegar to unclog drains. I also use lemon juice and salt or vinegar and salt to clean my copper-bottomed pots - not much scrubbing involved and when you use the lemon juice your drains smell great!!
