Super glue isn't a cleaner, but it can be pretty handy when you're in a cleaning mood. You know that broken floor vent cover you've been meaning to glue back together, or the cracked handle on the decorative pitcher your mother-in-law gave you (kids can be so destructive)? Every time you clean, you promise yourself you'll grab the super glue and take care of those little chores, but it never seems to happen. Quit stalling. Super glue comes in tiny tubes that won't take up much room in your cleaning kit. You'll be Ms. Fixit and Ms. Clean in less time than it takes to cook a frozen pizza. Now, that's efficient.
