Vinegar can dissolve the mineral deposits accumulated in shower heads over time.Fill up a plastic bag with white vinegar, secure it over the shower head with a rubber band and leave it overnight. In the morning remove the bag, scrub the remained residue and run the shower for a few seconds, before using it.

5- Place a wet dryer sheet on your ceramic stovetop to remove burnt-on residue

Dryer sheets are non-abrasive and a great way to remove burnt-on food from your stove. Place the wet dryer sheet on your stovetop at least 15 minutes before rubbing the gunk away.
