With holiday entertaining in full swing, this tip on how to clean glassware from the book Precycle! A Cookbook for the 21st Century could really come in handy if your stemware needs a bit of sprucing up. Also I tend to find some great pieces in thrift stores that don't look so great at first but sparkle after this cleaning tip!
Precycling is about recycling BEFORE you buy, and this book is packed full with recipes for everything you could possibly need in the kitchen, the bathroom, the utility room and even the bedroom. This handy reference book gives tips and recipes on how to make everything you buy in the shops, from sauces to sausages, bleach to beer and detergents to disinfectants for that, instead of buying products which are often heavy on chemicals and then throwing away or recycling the packaging you can miss out that entire stage and make the contents yourself, saving a fortune, getting better, chemical-free products and saving the planet in the process.
