Best uses for cream of tartar

I know that cream of tartar is a key ingredient in snickerdoodles and is a great stabilizing agent, but what other uses are there? My tiny cream of tartar has been gathering dust.

Meringues! Just a pinch when you're whipping works magic.

You can mix cream of tartar with vinegar into a paste, to use as a scrubbing agent for hard water stains and soap scum. This paste can be used as a metal cleaner, like cleaning and buffing copper pots. And it can be used as a stain remover for fabric.
