I keep my arsenal of cleaning products very simple; baking soda and vinegar can get just about everything in my house sparkling and germ-free. For a little extra fizz, this week I’m playing around with a cleaning agent I never would have considered: Alka-Seltzer. According to MedicalForYou.com, the fizzy acid indigestion medicine has myriad uses around the house. Here are a few:
Clean a toilet: Drop in 2 tablets, wait 20 minutes, brush and flush.
Clean a vase. Fill with water and drop in 2 tablets.
Polish jewelry: Drop 2 tablets into a glass of water and immerse the jewelry for 2 minutes.
Clean a thermos bottle: Fill the bottle with water, drop in 4 tablets, and let soak for an hour.
Unclog a drain: Clear the sink drain by dropping 3 tablets down the drain followed by a cup of white vinegar. Wait a few minutes, then run hot water.
