My desire to try my hand at DIY cleaners usually comes, not from an overwhelming desire to be cheap but rather one of laziness. That is, I’ve run out of a commercial product, and I’m too lazy to go to the story to buy new. I know this notion sounds counterintuitive, in that making your own cleaning products takes time and effort. But as long as you have the supplies on hand and you find a recipe that works, it’s really no effort at all. Which is how I came to make homemade dishwasher cleaner this past weekend. I’d...

This past weekend felt like I was living in some kind of alternate universe on the DIY channel. In addition to researching how I could use a DIY approach to fix my dishwasher, which wasn’t cleaning the dishes, I also needed to figure out how to clean a new All-Clad stainless steel pan that I’d treated myself to as a late Christmas gift. (Don’t worry–I didn’t pay full price for this pricey pan. I had a gift card.) I’ve never had a high-end cooking pan before, and I must admit that when I first took it out of the...
