That's right. I just washed my dishes using Windex. gently caress it. I haven't been home in a couple of days so I had the bright idea to make myself some delicious chili. I went to the local H.E Butts and procured myself some ground round, an onion, some Ranch Style Beans, some tomato sauce and about 5 different peppers. Vwhalla! Chili! Did I mention that I forgot detergent for my (dirty) dishes? More specifically, detergent to clean the only appropriately sized pot I own that is sized enough to cook up some delicious chili? WAIT! Now why the hell would I have a dirty pot sitting in my sink for a couple of days? Because I'm a lazy motherfucker that's why. So! Long story short- I proceeded to wash said pot with Windex. Boom-va-zaam! A pot decidedly shiny enough to make yon chili!

So my fellow goons, I decided to make a thread based upon the apparent mental efficiency I was able to muster using common household items to reach a goal that said common household items may not have been intended for but were nevertheless used to attain something O needed done, and fast. What's that? You are out of coffee filters? Ka-bam-shaplam! Toilet paper folded over a few times works perfectly!

Do it my friends- tell me what you have used around your house to do something that a particular product was never intended for but you used because, gently caress it, you needed something done and you needed it done NOW!

Beans don't go in chili.

Edit: Neither does ground beef. I'm not sure what type of stew you were making.

Beans are fine in chili.

But what the gently caress are "ranch-style" beans?

I just can't tell you how painful it was to read this sentence.

Ammonia and alcohol solvent-laced chili dyed blue really hits the spot.

What kind of chili do you eat that has no beef?

Beans are only a slight step above Windex as potential chili ingredients.

Beef is fine. Ground beef, however, is pretty terrible in chili.

I hear Windex works pretty well too. Just make sure you rinse the hell out of it before you use it.

You could have just scrubbed them with a sponge and then poured some boiling water on them to kind of disinfect them after you got all the food bits off them. This probably would have been better and safer for you than using Windex. You can in fact still do this.

I make sure that all the beans that I buy at the store have been range fed at a Texan ranch.

Ground beef gets you a bowl of sloppy joe. Cubed beef browned and simmered for a few hours gets you good chili.
