natural teacup stain remover

Evidence of a hospitable (or at least energised) home are the inevitable stains in the teacups. These beige and brown marks appear quite quickly and drive me (you?) crazy. When we're down to the last sparkling cup I gather them all together and give them a good scrub down. Here's how:

1 tbs salt
1 tbs bi-carb
1/2 tbs water

Make a paste from the ingredients and rub into the stains all around the cup- a little elbow grease may be necessary
Let it sit for a few minutes

Fantastic! I love bi carb soda, it is so versitile! I also like to use lemon juice to clean my stainless steel kettle. I am a big fan of vinegar too.
Thanks for the clean teacup tip...I am holding up my teacup to 'cheers' you know!

Thanks for the great tips! Do you have any suggestions for cleaning the gunk of bathroom tiles? x

Bathroom tiles- check out the recipes from this past post: http://www.ecomilf.com/2009/11/make-your-own-natural-cleaning-kit.html

I generally just use a lot of bi-carb and some borax and rub it into the troubled areas, then let it sit overnight and rinse (rubbing again) in the morning with white vinegar. xx
