Raise your hand if you look at that and think, "Wow, I want to wash my forks and spoons with that!"
Any hands up? No?
Because you totally can. See?
Personally, I love ginger. I look for opportunities to use it in my cooking. In fact, it's one of the fresh ingredients I always have on hand in my kitchen, along with shallots and garlic. Using it to clean my plates and glasses was an acquired taste. Or acquired scent I suppose. But now that I've been using it awhile, I think of it as a very warm and fresh scent, which surely leaves the dishes extra clean and sparkly in the way that Altoids curiously strong peppermints leaves your breath extra fresh and sparkly.
It also makes me a little bit hungry. And inspired to dirty up some more dishes creating something new with ginger. Hmmm. Maybe that's what the company intended all along?
