    from Angel P. in Mesa, AZ

    Often without thinking of the consequences, we heat up spaghetti sauce or other food that stains in plastic or tupperware containers. The next thing you know, you’ve stained your tupperware beyond repair, or so you think. I’ve found the one think that truly saves them. Fill the container with water and some baking soda and place it in the freezer. Let the mixture completely freeze. Take it from the freezer, hold the container upside down and clunk out the ice. You will have your good tupperware back again!

    Instead of buying paper towels to clean your mirrors, windows, counter tops and general household cleaning including spills and dusting use the wonderfiber cloth and see that you spend less money on paper products and you are also saving the environment.
