You Will Need
Sanitizing the Toilet
Drop four tablets into the toilet bowl and leave them for 20 minutes. Brush, flush, and you’re done.
Making Your Sink Sparkle
Fill your bathroom or kitchen sink halfway with water, drop in two tablets. Let stand for 20 minutes, drain, and rinse.
Quickly Cleaning Greasy Cookware
Fill dirty pots and pans with warm water, add five tablets, and let everything sit for an hour. Wipe, rinse, and you’re good to go.
Refreshing Your Vase
Remove the icky residue that gathers at the impossible-to-reach bottom of narrow-neck vases by filling them halfway with water and adding two tablets. Wait until the fizzing stops, then rinse the vase clean.
Shining Your Jewelry
To clean jewelry, dissolve two Alka-Seltzer tablets into a glass of warm water and immerse the jewelry, letting it soak for two minutes.
Revitilizing Your Coffee Maker
Fill your coffeemaker with water and plop in four Alka-Seltzer tablets. Once they’ve dissolved, put the coffeemaker through a brew cycle to clean the tubes. Rinse the chamber a few times, then run a second cycle with plain water. Your next cup will taste great.
