"Miracle" Cleaner. Since I discovered the "miracle" of baking soda and peroxide...I can't stop cleaning stuff with it! Last week it was my stove top that I had UNSUCCESSFULLY tried EVERY OTHER CLEANER on and now sparkles like new! This week I have cleaned my toaster, blender and KitchenAid mixer til they SHINE! Today, as I contemplated what I could clean next, I noticed my nasty-looking utensils that are covered with hard water spots and thought....why not!?!? :-) This is my "recipe": I put about 1/4 cup of baking soda in a small glass bowl and squirt in hydrogen peroxide until it makes a nice paste. Then I rub it on the offending dirt/stain/grease...whatever! I usually just use my fingers...but I also use a small sponge at times as well. I've never used gloves and my fingers have never bothered me. As a matter of fact, this stuff seems to make them softer? Is that possible? lol.
