Everyday pantry items to help you clean…

Any article that offers up smart hacks for cleaning is top of my to-read list.

This recent article from the New York Times is a keeper. It’s the kind of article my mom might have clipped and sent to me in the mail and that I would’ve then pinned up on a wall near my washing machine where it stay for decades. I mean, who knew that you could polish brass and copper with V8, Tabasco or plain ol’ ketchup? And did you know that vodka, when spritzed on clothing, will neutralize smells? Or meat tenderizer for stubborn stains? So very cool!

So check it out and let me know if you have any other hacks using everyday products.
