I have a tea pot that sits on my stove all the time. I’m not sure why. I don’t drink tea. Jared likes hot tea in the morning, but he always just uses the microwave. The only time the kettle gets used is when it’s close to Christmas and we are having hot chocolate. Yet there sits my kettle, taking up space on the back burner. It just seems to belong there. It’s homey. But it’s also filthy. And why not? I fry, boil, saute, sear and stir food in front of it every night! So when I saw this pin about using cream of tartar to clean a toaster I figured it would work well for my poor tea pot, too. And it did! It was so easy, and my kettle is happy and shiny again. Until tonight.
