    MIdwest Supplies has some deals right now

    Thanks, @sdibley. I have an addiction when it comes to bargains. Although I don't need cleaning agents at the moment, I got 5 pounds of an oxygen type cleaner for $1.30 plus shipping.

    Best label removal hack EVER

    If you're lucky enough to live near a wine making supply store where you can buy bottles for about $1 or less, then it doesn't make sense to spend a lot of time and energy salvaging wine bottles. Those people who don't have a local bottle source have to pay shipping to get bottles in. The costs...
