    Any half-decent chef or baker most likely has a jar of it stashed somewhere, something that they bought long ago, for that one project that one time, and then ignored forevermore. And the name may ring a bell for you, but maybe only in that vaguely-familiar way. Snickerdoodle cookies? Fish sticks?
    All the way at the very back of your spice cabinet, pushed into the farthest corner and long forgotten, is that little jar of eco-friendly DIY green cleaning gold: cream of tartar.

    A lot of these I do with baking soda...wonder if the cream of tartar works better? At least for cleaning don't have to worry about aluminum, lol. I have an ancient, expired can somewhere. Will have to try some of these. Thanks!
