I fear I am becoming like the Dad in the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding. You know the guy who goes around spraying everything and everyone with Windex claiming it’s pretty much the cure for EVERYTHING!
“Toula Portokalos: My dad believed in two things: That Greeks should educate non Greeks about being Greek and every ailment from psoriasis to poison ivy can be cured with Windex.”
Since I discovered the “miracle” of baking soda and peroxide…I can’t stop cleaning stuff with it! Last week it was my stove top that I had UNSUCCESSFULLY tried EVERY OTHER CLEANER on and now sparkles like new! This week I have cleaned my toaster, blender and KitchenAid mixer til they SHINE!
Today, as I contemplated what I could clean next, I noticed my nasty-looking utensils that are covered with hard water spots and thought….why not!?!? :-)
This time I decided to document with pictures. Although my camera phone doesn’t really do the Before and Afters justice…I still think it’s pretty dramatic!
This is my “recipe”:
I put about 1/4 cup of baking soda in a small glass bowl and squirt in hydrogen peroxide until it makes a nice paste. Then I rub it on the offending dirt/stain/grease…whatever! I usually just use my fingers…but I also use a small sponge at times as well.
I’ve never used gloves and my fingers have never bothered me. As a matter of fact, this stuff seems to make them softer? Is that possible?
SEE! I AM becoming like the Dad in “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”! Next thing I’ll be putting it on my zits! hahaha. Probably not though. ;-)
