The place that accepts my recyclables also requests that we rinse plastic out. One day, when I was rinsing out a bottle of automatic dish detergent, I noticed that as I began to rinse the water and soap residue out of the bottle, my stainless steel kitchen sink began to look freshly cleaned, and it left a fresh scent, too. Now, I spare my budget the expense of regular sink cleaners and only do it the "rinse and recycle" way.
I'm trying to get away from so much processed food. I still indulge occasionally. Single servings of Stouffer's Lasagna is a favorite, and for me, comes with a little kitchen aid bonus.
