As this blog slowly progresses in the future I’d like to include posts and input from readers about handy helpful hints. We can all use them! Time savers and money savers, we know they are out there. For example we all know nothing cleans out a stainless steel pot as well as a good old SOS pad or any steel wool pad. However, within a day or two after use they turn into this soupy yucky rusty useless mess. Freeze it. I put mine in a plastic bag and pop it in the freezer. It stays bacteria free, yuck free and I can use it for at least a month. By the way, they work incredibly great when frozen.
