As you know, I’m big into recycling things, turning trash into treasure every chance I get. And salad take-out containers from the supermarket deli are perfect for storing everything from leftover food to office supplies around the old homestead.

But here’s a quick and easy solution to this problem: Fill the containers with water, and drop one or two denture-cleaning tablets into each one. Wait about half an hour, and rinse them clean. Then fill ‘em up!
