You Probably Don’t Clean This One Thing All That Often — And That’s Okay! — Cleaning Tips from The Kitchn

I am a person who likes to stay hydrated. I typically keep a big water bottle at my desk, a little one in my purse, and another big one in the car.

My recent trip to Portugal confirmed my theory — and introduced me to a two-ingredient cocktail that will serve me well as summer turns to fall.
