Tip Of the Day

What does this have that others don't?





Yep tried all these...  none of these worked!!!!




Viola!!!! Baking soda paste cleaned the icky sticky whatever someone applied to this beautiful bowl before I bought it.  I believe it may have been vegetable oil because it had become rancid. It was a filmy, white, sticky to the point of sticking to my regular kitchen towel. YUCK!!!!




I will never again doubt the cleaning power of baking soda paste!!!!  I will be honest I wasn't sure if I should use it on wood, but I figured what do I have to lose.  I just sprinkled it in the bowl, wet my paper towel, and went to town scrubbing.
