My Pizza Stone Tastes Funny and How to Wash It

I absolutely love my baking stone (I have a square pizza stone similar to this one because it is more versatile than a round one.) I use it all the time and for pretty much everything I put in the oven. ( Disclosure: I am including affiliate links for your convenience .) Which I learned is a mistake. The food I bake on my pizza stone is starting to taste weird. The stone smells and smokes when I put it in a hot oven. Why? Because baking and pizza stones are porous. That’s how they do their job of creating perfectly baked bread and pizza crusts. But the porous stone can also absorb and trap the fats and oils in the food baked on top of it. Over time, the oil heats and releases into the lovely seasoning you created by baking on the stone and makes your pizza or bread taste awful and/or fill your kitchen with eye watering smoke. Bleach! In other words, I should have used a metal baking sheet to make oven baked French fries and not my baking stone. Oops. Save this tutorial to

How to Make Eyeglass Cleaning Spray!

Ever since I first started wearing glasses as a kid, I cleaned them every morning by wetting the lenses and carefully cleaning them with a little bit of dish washing liquid on my fingers. I’d pat the lenses dry with a towel for a clean and clear view of the day before me.

It wasn’t until I got a new optometrist as an adult that I was introduced to the magic of lens cleaning spray. Paired with the microfiber lens cleaning cloth that also came with my glasses, I can easily slip everything into my purse and clean my glasses on the go for streak free viewing morning, noon, and night.

Mind. Blown.

(It’s the simple things, I know.)

My optometrist gives me free lens cleaning fluid refills but of course, I ran out and couldn’t make it down to his shop in time for an out of town trip. Turns out lens cleaning spray is very, very, very easy and inexpensive to make. In fact, you might already have everything you need to make cleaning fluid for glasses at home!

DIY Lens Cleaning Spray

You will need the following ingredients:

Rubbing (isopropyl) alcohol- you can buy 70% isopropyl alcohol here. This is the same strength you’d find sold with first aid supplies

Water

Spray bottle- I several of these 2oz spray bottles filled with lens cleaning fluid so I can keep one in my purse, my desk drawer, and medicine cabinet

Optional but recommended: a microfiber eye glass cleaning cloth like this one

How to Make Lens Cleaning Fluid the Easy Way!

 

1. Pour three parts rubbing alcohol into the empty spray bottle.

2. Add one part water to the spray bottle, screw on the top, and give the bottle a little shake to mix the ingredients.

3. You’re done. That’s it. Really.

Since the rubbing alcohol quickly evaporates after cleaning your glasses with the microfiber cloth, you can also use my lens fluid spray recipe to clean camera lenses and smart phone and tablet touch screens.
