Now that we're several snowstorms deep into winter, and signs of life from my fire-escape herb garden ended long ago, I like to use my stash of dried herbs for a dose of flavor. A favorite use for thyme is this supereasy and fragrant chicken dish (pictured). But according to a recent New York Times piece, there's another new use for thyme in the kitchen: as a cleanser. Seventh Generation just launched a new line of disinfecting sprays and wipes made with thymol (a component of thyme oil).
