In this Thursday's Quick Tips my focus was on Kool Aid.
Turns out the drink we give our children in its raw form will clean just about anything.
It can be used to clean the dishwasher. Just put a package in the detergent section and run a cycle. (I would suggest the lemonade flavor as opposed to one of the flavors with a stronger dye color.)
It can be used to clean a toilet. Pour a package in the bowl. Use a brush to swish around. Leave it for about 10 minutes then flush.
You can also use Kool Aid as a dye. It is a safe dye for Easter eggs. You can also add it to paint.
One of my favorite dye uses is to create finger paint for children. Use plain yogurt and add different colors of Kool Aid. Your kids will love it and it won't hurt them if they eat it!!!
