Just whipped up a batch of apple squares. I love this recipe, so quick and easy, not to mention delicious.

Good to know! Makes sense. Citric acid has been added to my cleaning arsenal, which previously had only white vinegar, rubbing alcohol, Dawn dish detergent and Oxyclean.

This is a timely comment! I've been going through boxes in the garage for our garage sale. Came across a couple of camp knives that must have been my Dad's. Rusty as all get-out. I think we'll try to restore them, then "gift" one each of our kids with a memento.

Right now I'm stuffing my face and listening to baseball. Later tonight I'll be stuffing my face and watching basketball. Sure hope way later tonight I'm not stuffing my face with Tums.

Is that equal amounts of each, Dawg? I've forgotten, and need to replenish my spray bottle.

Thank you for this info, BC! I've got some too that need to be cleaned up.

Cheryl, my usual cleaning spray consists of 1/3 part each white vinegar, rubbing alcohol, and water. I use Dawn and Oxyclean for stains.

I'm going to have to give that spray a try. I'm running out of my regular eco-friendly stuff and it isn't that easy to get that particular stuff.
