The French Press is an exquisite brewing device. Timeless, easy to clean, and incredibly forgiving, this sainted multi-purpose carafe is capable of all kinds of feats. There are the obvious ways to operate a press pot: brewing coffee, steeping tea, and making a batch of overnight cold brew—but have you explored its other secret menu uses? It’s a whiz at making frothy milk and a wonder in the field of fruit-forward spa water.
But say you find yourself short on fresh long johns. There is another use—not dissimilar to the method allegedly in use by flight attendants—that just might void your warranty. That’s right: the French Press can clean your soiled undies. This method allows you to go from unfresh unmentionables to most gleamingest, tightiest of tighty-whiteys. Using Sprudge’s patent-pending method, you can freshen up your funderwear in under a minute flat.
