Did you know that you can use Baking Soda as a scouring medium. I use it in general in my kitchen for scouring tea stanes out of cups, helping with scouring my stainless steel pots & pans. Works wonders and doesn't scratch like steel wool or SOS pads sometimes do.
Did you know that you can substitute applesauce for the fat portion of your ingredients in baking.

Tastes great with a lot less calories.
