Video: Chemistry Cleaning Hacks

Spring has sprung in Cleveland and I’ve been in the zone when it comes to cleaning. It feels like I am wiping away the long cold winter and it feels good. I was pleased to see this video from the American Chemical Society in my inbox touting several cleaning hacks including glass and window cleaner (I am battling with the last ounce of the blue stuff and my hand is getting tired from all the pumping required to eek out the last few sprays.)

The video also shows how to remove a red wine stain and instructs you when it’s a good thing to spit on the kitchen counter in the name of cleanliness – odd and gross, I know. But don’t knock it until you hear the chemistry behind it.
