Wow! Great Post!!
I wanted to add a couple of my favorites: Magic Erasers. I have some chemical sensitivities so I use them often. They are miracle workers! Great to get marks off wall, counter tops, floors, clean bathrooms, etc...
And, I also like Goo Gone (which is probably similar to WD-40). It works great on getting stickiness off of almost anything including clothes.

Oh my gosh! Yes! I can't believe I forgot those. I don't know where I'd be without Magic Erasers! Goo Gone is great too. For some reason, my floor always has tape and stickers on it and goo gone really helps!
Holy cow. Thanks for this post. I'm definitely going to refer to this page when I'm cleaning mattresses. I may buy someone's mattress when I move off campus this summer and I was kind of weary about it but I'll definitely feel better after I clean it with your tips!
Also, I've also found Windex's all purpose cleaner very useful. It comes in the classic Windex spray bottle but it's a yellow liquid instead of blue. (I found it much more effective than Fantastik)
Annddd... Magic Erasers are as amazing as they advertise. I never thought that was possible but it's AWESOME!
Be careful when buying someone else's mattress if you have allergies or live in an area prone to bedbugs (well, if someone sells you a mattress with bedbugs, they probably know and are just jerks). If you do buy used, make sure it is from someone you know or trust. I actually found out the other day that you can't sell mattresses on craigslist and in some states, there are laws against it. I bought a used mattress in college but I am allergic to cats so I made sure the person who sold it to me never owned any cats. I cleaned it and never had any problems. It was actually the most comfortable mattress I ever owned, I kinda miss it!
Thanks for the tip. I'm not allergic to anything. It's a friend of a friend's so that makes it a little better. I'll definitely take a look at it and see it in her room as well as talk to her (to get a feel of what she's like and if she takes care of herself and her things). It'll let me gauge how scared I should be when I sleep! :P
^lol! Not allergic to anything?! I'm SO jealous!! My son and I have the worst allergies so I am always cautious when buying anything used that has a porous or fabric surface. I cringe when I think of all the money I could have saved if I didn't have stupid allergies! :)
Nothing so far... :x
Though I am lactose intolerant and Lactaid is rather expensive if that makes you feel better :P
Wow great post. Good to know, right before spring cleaning!
