I was cleaning under a bathroon sink today, spring cleaning while it snows. I found an expired bottle of saline solution that I used to use for cleaning contacts. It was almost full, and since I needed to clean the sink anyhoo, I squirted some on a sponge and began wiping up the soap spots. Lo and behold, it did an excellent job of cleaning the sink amd the faucet, making the faucet shine with almost no effort. Of course it would be terribly expensive to buy saline solution for cleaning sinks, but here's a great use for the stuff that is too old for contacts.
