Combat stubborn stains on cups, plates, and dishes effortlessly. Soak them in a blend of baking soda and hot water overnight. The next day, gently scrub with a cloth moistened in salt. Wash and dry as usual for stain-free kitchenware, shining like new.

Just what my beef stew needed. These dumplings are little flavor bombs, especially with the bacon. Will definitely be my go-to dumplings now.
