This long-forgotten gem of a cleaning agent may be used with a little water or vinegar to lift even the most stubborn stains. Unattractive grout. Mold and mildew, Burner pans and casserole dishes, Cream of Tartar — The Cleaner You’ll Swoon Over October 27, 2008|Comments (54) In my little world, items like cream of tartar (potassium bitartrate) are not simply a super way to stabilize egg whites but also scandalously inexpensive cleaning secrets. This long-forgotten gem of a cleaning agent may be used with a little water or vinegar to lift even the most stubborn stains. Unattractive grout driving you batty? Mold and mildew stains got you reaching for the Prozac? Burner pans and casserole dishes giving you fits? Cream of Tartar is your new best friend. Cream of tartar is one of nature’s best bleaching agents. Cream of tartar, a.k.a “crusted wine,” is mixed with baking soda to create baking powder (bet you didn’t know that.. okay, some of you probably did, you smartypants). While it is an acid, it’s not harmful. It’s an acidic salt which comes from grapes. Why is commercial laundry detergent never grape scented? I want to know. Someone please contact Tide. We need answers! Actually, we don’t need answers. We can scent our own homemade detergent (I haven’t bothered but that’s not to say that you couldn’t… after all, you knew about that baking powder thing — you smartypants). Anyway, back to the important stuff: Use a few tablespoons of cream of tartar with hot water or hydrogen peroxide and clean any aluminum pans which have discoloration or any rusty drains, pans, or stains. Do you have copper kettles? Mix some cream of tarter with lemon juice and rub the copper with it. Rinse and be amazed! How about a porcelain sink, tub, commode? Rub the porcelain surfaces with cream of tartar and watch the stains disappear. Fabric stains? No prob. Mix a few teaspoons of cream of tartar with some glycerin and use like spray-and-wash. The results? Well, I’m here to tell you that this stuff cured the ring around Joshua’s shirt collars. Just need a great nonabrasive cleaner? Mix 2 teaspoons of vinegar and 2 teaspoon of cream of tartar in a small dish (use 3 or 4 teaspoons of vinegar and 3 or 4 teaspoons of cream of tartar if you have more items to clean). Apply with your cleaning rag or scrub brush and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Scrub. Wash with hot soapy water. Please pass these recipes to your Cream of tartar is also great for keeping your peeled potatoes from turning brown. Just add about a teaspoon of cream of tartar to your peeled potatoes…and you can soak them for a long period of time without them turning brown. the maid using cream of tarter to use on hard water spots Cream of TT works miracles on the bathtub. That’s because it is a dry acid and the bathtub ring is a base. This is kindergarten chemistry! – vinegar on a sponge then use the cream of TT as a scouring powder. The bathtub ring disappears like magic. calcium deposit stuff that builds up? Just put a teaspoon of Cream of Tarter in the teapot and fill about a third or so with water and boil. Then pour the water out and wipe the white stuff right off! if you want to clean aluminum you should try Cameo cleansing powder. it’s usually found next to the comet. It works great, and is a lot cheaper than using cream of tartar. I have found bulk sized bags of cream of tartar on amazon. If you live anywhere near a winery you can check with them and see if you can get it from them. (Cream of tartar is a by-product of wine making. I imagine they sell it to spice companies?) Here is a link: http://www.amazon.com/Frontier-Cream-Tartar-Powder-package/dp/B0001M0YK8/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8=1333028531=8-2 Its an example of a one pound bag for about $15. I don’t know how much the shipping would be but I would hope that the price would be better than the little tiny bottles in the store. Regarding where to buy larger jars of cream of tartar. I was at Aldi (discount grocery store owned by trader joes) around the holidays and found a large jar of cream of tartar for under $2 My grandmother swore by cream of tartar as a blood purifier. As kids my mom always gave us some mixed in a glass of water. Bakewell Cream is the same as cream of tartar and can be found in most grocery stores. It’s in a yellow can and is 8oz. I used cream of tartar with white vinigar and 1/2 cup warm water to clean the stains off of the seats of a pair of antique chairs that I found at a thrift store. They were done in powder blue velvet. Every stain came out. Back in the 50′s, my mom used Cream of Tarter a lot for laundry, etc..

Rain Barrel Parts | How to build rain barrel from trash can
trash can rain barrels design layout
Clean Water Source
Reuse rainwater with these barrels made from trash cans. Placed underneath your home's downspout, a rain barrel can help conserve water (and money) by capturing rain runoff from the roof. You can then use that water for the garden. You'll find a variety of barrels available online: Look for ones that have a spigot for a house attachment. Or make your own from large plastic trash containers. You can purchase a pump to help deliver the water through your hose, or a tap to fill your watering can.

Instructables - Gutterless rain barrel (a «drain barrel»)
Water Storage, Good Ideas, Veggie Gardens, Rain Barrels, Rain Water Collection, House, Homesteads, Veggies Gardens, Gutterless Rain
Gutterless Rain Barrel - a "Drain Barrel". Great idea! Great use for all the kitty litter containers to collect water storage for my livestock. Though using a gutter would be better, not pressure treated work because of chemicals. Don't forget to put a touch of bleach to keep the water drinkable. I think putting a filter over the opening of the container with a rubberband would be good too, to keep debris out.
