Mix 1 tbsp. soda, 1/3 glass vinegar, some hot (not boiling) water, and 1 tbsp. powder detergent, and rub the mix into the stain. The soda will then help freshen the fabric — sprinkle some on the dry sofa, let it stay like that for a couple of hours, and then vacuum it.

Washing a scorched pan

Pour a little water into the pan, add a cup of vinegar, then boil the mix. When it starts to simmer, take it off the stove and add some soda, then pour out the water when the reaction stops. If some of the scorches remain, carefully rub some soda into the pan.
