Thrifty Tip Tuesday: Lemonade Kool-Aid as Cleaner!

Usaully we purchase Kool Aid Lemonade to quench our thirst, but as crazy as it sounds is it's a GREAT cleaner.  I live in southern Colorado and our water is "hard", meaning we have lots of minerals in our water.  It's not uncommon to see a iron stain in a sink or tub where water has dripped.  Instead of purchase expensive cleaners to clean iron (or lime) deposits use a pack of lemonade from Kool-Aid!  It's known to work great in dishwashers too.  Just pour the packet into the detergent cup and run your dishwasher cycle.
