Clean Your Cups


We were recently tipped off to a handy trick from the bloggers at Shelterrific: use denture cleansers to remove stubborn tea and coffee stains from your cups and mugs. Who knew? But, we tried it, and, amazingly, they do work. So, next time you're visiting grandpa, steal a few tablets from the medicine cabinet, or invest in a supply of your own ($6.69 for a box of Efferdent at drugstore.com).

Cook's Illustrated published this trick in one of their issues within the last few years.

Works in toilet bowls too. In the water tank or in the bowl.

Even if you haven’t taken a cross-country fast food odyssey or eaten out with friends who pack their own gourmet salt, you can show your Frank Bruni spirit with an "I am Frank Bruni" t-shirt, designed by tastingmenu.com. If you’d rather not wear your statement like a foodie superhero, you can order it on a messenger bag instead.
