Tea is not just for drinking! It has a high acidity and can also be used to clean glass surfaces. To do this, simply brew a pot of black tea and let it cool. Once it’s cooled, dip a clean cloth into the tea and use it to wipe down glass surfaces like windows. The tannic acid in the tea will remove any dirt or grime, leaving your surfaces sparkling clean.

2. Quickly clean your fan blades with a pillowcase
