à toutes les sauces

à toutes les sauces

Litterally, the phrase translates as "with all the sauces". Take the sentence, "Employer un mot à toutes les sauces." In  English, "Use a word very loosely."

Consider, "Les politiciens utilisent cette expression à toutes les sauces," which translates as "Politicians use this expression loosely."

Other funny French idioms.
