Here are 10 of my favorite DIY citrus cleaners and cleaning techniques. Please share your favorites in the comments below!
Recently, a comment on this kitchen transformation caught my eye.

We've had our coffee table for years, and it's acquired a decent number of dings and scratches. That said, when two water marks recently appeared, I panicked. My cousin recommended I try ironing them out — and to my amazement, they were gone in minutes.
I love simple DIYs that add something unusual and unique to your child's room. When I first saw this lamp, I figured it must be some high-priced number that was out of my reach. But then I realized it was made from newspaper, and I was sold.
