So my Tide bottle was a little yucky around the lid so I took it to the kitchen sink to rinse it off.  Got it nice and wet and took a paper towel and wiped the sides , top, etc.  Then I thought, what the heck, the paper towel was all wet and full of Tide, just clean the sink Jim.  Wow, can't believe how shiny and clean it is and the water isn't leaving water I on to something am I going to get rich from this and retire next week????  foot-in-mouth

Many years ago I was at a Moes and the person I was with asked the manager how they got their stainless steel so clean and he said they wash it down with Arm & Hammer detergent...

You'd be surprised what all can be cleaned with detergent. Try some super hot water and a drop in a mop bucket... a small drop in a spray bottle of water....
inside and outside of Your home... some people used it to wash lice ridden hair... The list is pretty lengthy, as long as You remember to rinse. :)
I'm just over here dying to find out how to make super lemon scented detergent like we had back in the 70's and 80's.... dying, I tell ya! :D

cleans stainless steel appliances too.

Jim, I worked with a guy who lived with his folks until he retired. He saved all his money and was rich enough.
I guess we can't have it both ways. He wasn't the happiest person I knew by far.
Money doesn't buy happiness. Life is what we make of it. It's way harder to make a good living these days. If you're able to pay most of you bills, most would tell you you're well off. A friend of mine lost his good job in 2005, and has never made good money since. Good thing he was smart and bought a duplex. The rental income saved him.
He is a one person household.
Some are very lucky, and win the Lottery too. Some of those squander it away in no time.

Tide powder used to be advertised for washing all sorts of things - floors, walls, bathroom, etc. in addition to fabrics. P&G Professional still sells a Tide formula for such uses.

Tide is great for the bathtub too

It cuts through that bathtub ring with no scrubbing.

Tide knock-offs

How about Tide Knock-offs? Will those do the trick too?
