        *sigh* that's what I was fearing lol... I was expecting some kind of vinager(sp) mix lol... looks like i get a new pot for fish and mom gets a new pan to never use lol... (found tis one in the garage and she flipped when she saw I was using it... my argument was if you loved the pan why was in not in the kitchen?) Needless t say I lost but still haha

          Do you have barkeepers friend around there? I've gotten driftwood stains out with it before Its very acidic though so you can't really let it soak, it can ruin the pot if left too long.

                  Haha I was confused the first time I heard someone mention it! I think I've seen it at Menard's. It comes in a white bottle.

                            I have to admit, I named my 3 mysteries I got from Jon, I don't even name 95% of my fish!

                            Imo Mr. Potsworth is about a good a name for a pot as any

                              Lol I don't name most of my fish. Too much work to keep track. I only had one snail named and that was Valentina LOL. She was the largest, pinkest snail I've ever seen.
