    Default Name something that you threw out during the kitchen challenge

    That was a horrible waste of money. I threw out an almost full container of wipes to clean my stainless steel fridge and stove. I paid something like $7 for this container of 35 wipes, and would have to use at least 3 to do both appliances, and they did a terrible job!
    I read somewhere that you could use the Vim cream cleanser on a wet cloth on them, and it works better than anything else I've found! And I only paid $1.39 for a bottle that has lasted me for months!!

    I've just been home 3 days. Trying to catch up. I've tossed a ton of extra plastic containers and lids with no matching tops or bottoms. Also just plain had too many of some things.

    Tossed two dead flower bouquets too.

    I'm still stuck in the kitchen. Just finished all my bottom cupboards and drawers.

    ~ Tossed a bluenose cookie press (huge honking clay thing that was a gift from someone).
    ~ Also tossed some scrunched up tin foil loaf pans.
    ~ Moved tons of stuff from my "junk" drawer to where it belongs in the house. Tossed two non-working flashlights.
    ~ tossed a thing that holds a hunk of cheese in place while you cut it. I've never used it. It was a gift too.

    Tossed a few other weird things, but can't remember them all. Lots of old cookbooks or never used recipe magazines/booklets.
