Fill in the bath tub with warm water and mild detergent and soak in the pillows. Leave the pillows in the tub for at least 30 minutes.

Accumulation of dust on the glass table and other surface can be prevented by the following method: mix one teaspoon of softener and warm water and wipe surfaces with a damp cloth. This will not only clean them, but will also reduce static electricity, which will prevent the accumulation of dust.
You can shine silverware by placing a sheet of foil and a teaspoon of baking soda in a plastic bowl. Place the silverware inside – each one should be in contact with the foil. Pour some boiling water and keep utensils inside the bowl for about 15 minutes. Finally rinse and polish.
