New Alka Seltzer Coupons

There are new Alka Seltzer printables at coupon.com (zip code 90210). No doubt that there will be a good deal on these at your local grocery or drug store.

However, if you don't suffer from heartburn and/or you're fully stocked for flu season, here are some good frugal uses for Alka Seltzer, courtesy of Planet Green.

5 Uses for Alka Seltzer That You Might Not Know About
  1. Clear a Clog
    You can often unclog a sink with about four Alka Seltzer tablets and a cup of white vinegar. Just drop the tablets down the drain, follow with the vinegar and allow to stand for about ten minutes. Flush with a pot of boiling water.

    Doing this on a regular basis can help keep that drain clear.
  2. Clean a Toilet
    Drop in two Alka Seltzer tablets to quickly clean your toilet bowl. Allow the water to stop fizzing and then brush with the toilet bowl brush. The inside should be clean, shiny, and deodorized.
  3. Clean Your Glass Baking Dishes
    I don't know about your but I love my glass bakeware. It can be hard to get clean when something gets burned on, however. In theory only, mind you...I would never burn anything, myself. If I ever did burn something on my glass bakeware I would use three Alka Seltzer tablets in hot water to clean it off so that it looked like new again.
  4. Whiten and Brighten
    Soak your white cotton items in a solution of a gallon of warm water and two Alka Seltzer tablets to brighten it. It will end up being white without any dingy yellow color. Hang in the sun to dry to get rid of any lingering stains.
  5. Deodorize the Fridge
    You can have the cleanest, freshest smelling refrigerator in town. Just drop a tablet of Alka Seltzer in a cup of water and let it bubble in the refrigerator for a half hour or so. If it still smells a little funny use another tablet in water to wash it down. No more slices of salmon flavored cream pie.
I just love finding tips like these. It TOTALLY justifies me scoring the great freebies and cheapies on items we don't normally use, hehe. 

"Yeah, yeah, honey, I know we don't suffer from heartburn but these were FREE! Not only that, we can clean the toilet AND unclog that shower drain! How multi-functional is that?" ;-P

Thanks to WUC!
