How can I set the colour in my jeans to prevent them from staining our furniture when I sit?
 
The secret is vinegar. Put a least one cup of vinegar in the wash with your jeans. This will help set the colour.
 
I have a brand new, high end, black trench coat and I accidently got nail polish on it. How can I remove the stain without damaging or discolouring it?
 
I strongly recommend dry-cleaning it because of the chemicals in nail polish. If she does anything wrong she is going to discolour the jacket.
 
I would love to hear the cleaning solution to the cinnamon that is embedded into my wool carpet.
 
Sprinkle backing soda over the carpet, let it sit for an hour and then vacuum it up. If it is a liquid spill on your carpet put club soda on the spill and absorb it with a clean towel, don’t rub it in, press down on the carpet to absorb the liquids. Do this until all liquids are absorbed and the surface is dry.  
 
How do I clean between the oven door and the glass inside? It’s a hard place to reach and I can’t get a streak-free shine.
 
You actually you can’t get in there to clean unless you take the oven door apart but you shouldn’t do that yourself. What I think is happening is she is not cleaning the inside of the door enough. Then what happens is a lot of stuff on the door that is left behind when you’re cleaning starts dripping and getting into the seal of that window. My favourite solution for cleaning an oven is taking baking powder and turning it into a paste with water. I then take this paste and put it on all the surfaces inside the oven. The secret to a really clean oven is to leave the paste in the oven over night and then wipe clean.
