Did you know you can clean with Alka-Seltzer?  I did some research and learned a few tips I didn’t know as well as a few hacks to speed up my cleaning.

Alka Seltzer is made of baking soda, citric acid, and aspirin. These are great cleaners and deodorizers.

Fill a glass with 1 cup warm water and place 1 tablet into the glass. Set in your refrigerator, close the door, and leave it for 30 minutes.

Clean Glass –

Fill your coffee pot with water and place a couple tablets into the pot. Let sit for 10 minutes.

This also works to clean out vases that are cloudy, have rings in them, or have small openings that a brush can’t get into.

Pour out the water, wash, and look how clean they are!

Clean Coffee & Tea Stains –

Pour 1 cup warm water in your mug and add 1 tablet. Let sit for 15 minutes.

Wash and your stains will be gone.

Fill your stainless steel coffee pot with water, add 2-3 tables and let sit for 15 minutes or more depending on how dirty it is.

Scrub lightly with a scrub brush and wash out. Your pot will be clean.

You can also do this method to loosen burned on food to loosen it for cleaning.

Fill with warm water and add 1-2 tablets depending on the size of the item and how dirty it is. Let soak for 10 minutes, and wash afterward.

Wash the cooler out. It’ll clean it and deodorize it.

Multipurpose Cleaner –

Place 1 cup warm water and 1 tablet in a squirt bottle. Use it to clean up surfaces like counters, sinks, and more.

Clean Your Toilet Bowl –

Place 4 tablets into your toilet bowl, wait 30 minutes, scrub with a scrub brush and flush.
