Scouring paste with Baking Soda 

For many stains, a simple scouring paste made of baking soda and water is very effective. This scouring paste can be used for burnt food in pans and on stoves, but also for bathrooms, tile joints, porcelain, acrylic glass, chrome, stainless steel, gold and silver.
 
1. Take a tablespoon or a cup of soda (as needed), add some water and stir into a homogenous paste.

2. You can apply this soda paste to the staining, let it soak for a short time and scrub if necessary.

3. Rinse with water and rub dry.

Remove dirt film from coffee and tea

When tea and coffee pots take on ugly dirt film,

traditional methods rarely help. 

With a simple trick, the jugs and cups can be cleaned: Put a teaspoon of baking soda in a jug or ½ teaspoon of baking soda in a cup and pour boiling water over it.

Leave overnight and the next morning the deposits are dissolved and can be easily wiped off.
