    You can use many different items for households such as curtains, blinds, rugs, and carpets.

    I have found that the anti-bacterial hand soap DW has near the kitchen sink does a good job on the glass top stove. It must have just the least amount of silicone or something for the skin but it cleans and then polishes easily compared to dish soap or other cleaners I have used.

    I had a look and this one has a little glycerin and castor oil, no silicones.

    Yes @MayaGmail we are presently camping & we put a mat just inside the tent for a landing place. We take our hiking boots off there so that we don't track pine needles etc onto our sleeping bags.

    We always rinse crockery before putting it in the dishwasher. Remember, any detritus trapped in the filter is still there during the rinse cycle.

    We've a lot of kitchen gadgets.
    Including a few indulgences, a Kitchenaid four slot toaster we've had for eight years and a Sage "Barista touch" all singin' n' dancin' coffee machine, we bought this year.

    But the most useful is our Shark mini vacuum cleaner. Great for "crumbing down" surfaces.

    Your coffee & cookies look delicious Riley.

    We bought a Rumba vacuum several years ago. I am not much into gadgets, but I love this thing. We call it R2D2 and it does a good job. We do have to R2D2-proof the house first however or else it will get itself into trouble. I came home one day to find it dragging one of my husband's hiking boots by the laces around the house. (My husband wears a size 13 very heavy boot so it was pretty comical.)

    Re gadgets, my best camping gadget is a small dust pan & brush for the tent.
