Handy Tips with... Alka-Seltzer?

>> Sunday, March 08, 2009

OK, I don't give much any thought to Alka-Seltzer. But after reading this article at Woman's Day I may have to get some.

1. Deep-Clean Vases Fill with warm water and drop in two of these baking soda–rich tablets. Let soak for an hour to remove the stains you can’t reach.

2. Speed-Scrub the Toilet Twice a week, drop two tablets into the bowl; 15 minutes later, do a once-around with the toilet brush.

3. Make an All-Purpose Cleaner Drop three tablets into 8 oz warm water. Once the fizzing stops, wipe down counters, tiles and tubs.

4. Safely Unclog a Drain Drop three tablets into the drain and run hot water for a few seconds (the hotter the water, the more fizzing). Let sit for 15 minutes.

5. Build Rockets Entertain little ones by heading outside with an empty film canister, filling it halfway with warm water and dropping in a half-tablet. Snap on the lid and place the canister lid down. Take a step back and watch it launch into the air. (Ahhh, here's the problem with digital cameras! No film canisters!)

Hmm...no film canisters, but I wonder if prescription bottles would work?!?

A few more tips for Alka Seltzer-
Polish jewelry: Drop two Alka Seltzer tablets into a glass of water and immerse the jewelry for two minutes.
Clean a thermos bottle: Fill the bottle with water, drop in four Alka Seltzer tablets, and let soak for an hour (or longer, if necessary).
