Thanks to Re-Nest reader Eternal*Voyageur for sharing this hot tip with us: apparently mustard powder is the bee's knees when it comes to cleaning dishes and pans. It's even better than baking soda! Here's what she says about it:
Mustard powder is the BEST thing ever to clean greasy plates, pots and pans. It absorbs the grease much faster than most detergents I've tried. I put a teaspoon or two (or three, if the pan is very big and very greasy) and spread it around with a brush, then rinse off. A slight mustard-y smell remains, so I like to follow with a quick wash using a tiny drop of detergent (to which I always add eucalyptus essential oil).
Sweet! We can't wait to try this. Anyone else found this tip to be true?
