Hi From The Republic Of Ireland. If you see any recipe which requires baking powder such as Irish soda bread or Barm Brack ( great Irish delicacies ), use 2 parts cream of tartar to 1 part baking soda instead. A pinch in egg-whites make meringues better too.

A paste made with it and water cleans brass and copper and removes tarnish and washes away with clean water.

sprinkle it anywhere you have an ant problem and they just go away ! Boil a little in water in aluminium pots to bring back the shine also.

Luckily it has an indefinite shelf life if kept from heat/light.

Make Homemade Playdough and put it in Halloween zip lock bags and hand out as treats to the kiddos. They will love it.

You can google homemade playdough recipes. It's really easy to make and doesn't dry quickly out like the real play dough does.
