Remove Produce Pesticides – Soak produce in 1 part vinegar and 4 parts water for 1-2 hours then rinse with water once more and they are ready to eat.  This also helps prolong their shelf life.

Steam Clean Your Microwave.  I’ve been doing this one for years.  I generally just put a wet sponge in the microwave for 30 seconds – 1 minute and then wipe it down!  Careful – the sponge will be really hot, so you might want to use a separate cloth to wipe.  Bonus – it kills bacteria on your sponge too.

  1. Now I just want a cupcake! I’ve seen that laundry basket thing, thought that was clever! Love the ipad mount, but the ice cream bread sounds so odd – and yet I’ve seen it elsewhere! Never tried that though.
