This time around, we asked you—our precious RL readers—what your best kept cleaning secrets are and you didn't disappoint. Check out some of the best suggestions below: 


I regularly use fabric softener and water to clean tiles. It never fails to leave it clean, shiny and smelling fresh! —Panelo Antonio Maria Caryl



Use coffee filters to remove dust and fingerprints from the screens on your TV, cellphone, computer, tablet or even mirrors. Works every time. 

Gently brush your kitchen cabinest with one part vegetable oil and two parts baking soda to get rid of food and oil marks. 

Clean your blinds with a tube sock dipped in a mixture of one part vinegar and one part water. This technique will make them last a lifetime. —Jan-Argy Tolentino



I use Crep Protect (available in all Rustan's department stores) on hard-to-clean items or items that easily get dirty such as white carpets and throw pillows. It's expensive but it is worth it! —Christian Blanco
