Spray a little WD-40
onto the hinges, moving the door back and forth to work in the lubricant. Or try rubbing the hinges with petroleum jelly
. If these tricks don’t work, lift the hinge pins about halfway and lubricate them with three-in-one oil
, using a rag to catch drips.
Combine equal amounts of cream of tartar
and baking soda with enough lemon juice to make a paste. Rub the mixture into the stain with your fingers or a soft cloth. Let sit for a half hour, then rinse well with water.
Spray the decals and the surrounding areas with WD-40, lifting the edges to get underneath, if possible. Let sit, then gently scrape away the decal with the edge of a credit card. Degrease the tub with liquid dishwashing soap.
Flattened Down Cushions
Put them outside in the sun for a few hours, flipping them halfway through. (Be careful―leaving them out too long may fade the fabric.) The sun will help evaporate the moisture that gets into the filling over time, and the cushions should plump up nicely.
Rub the spot with white toothpaste and a dry cloth or with an eraser. Or spray WD-40 on a towel and rub lightly, making sure to degrease the area afterward with liquid dishwashing soap and water.
