    If any of you have a lot of stainless steel in your kitchen give it a once over with some baby oil on a cloth then polish it up with another dry cloth. Brings it up like new!!

    I saw a woman doing it on wife swap last night, never thought to use baby oil before!!

    Also, try scrunching up a page of newspaper and rubbing it over windows that have been sprayed with a bit of windowlene; you'll get no smears!
