    Unusual uses for ice cubes

    You missed a cleaning trick that I learned YEARS ago. If you want your glass coffee-maker carafe to look like new, all you need is ice and salt. You pour a little salt in the bottom and top that with a few ice cubes. Give the ice a minute or so to barely begin to melt. Then 'swish' the salt around until all the brown stains disappear. (The ice activates a mild abrasive effect with the salt.) Your coffee maker will look brand new, and the most pleasant aspect is that you are not using any harsh chemicals that require removal after the cleaning. All you need to do is rinse out the salt and brew yourself another pot!
