  1. Water-marks on wood – Simply rub with a little bit of mayonnaise on a damp cloth to remove water-marks from wooden floors or furniture.


  1. Water-marks in the toilet – If your area has hard water then you will be used to ring markings around the toilet bowl. All you need to do is pour some coca cola into the toilet, leave for an hour, then flush!
