Expert tip: If you have any left over, use it to clean sinks and other spots in the kitchen.  Fill-up your sink with some hot soapy water (not very much as you don’t want it diluted a whole lot), maybe about 1″ deep. Then pour your remaining mixture into the sink.  Let it soak for a few minutes and then use a rag and shine up your sink, oven, microwave, counter tops, etc.
