My husband will eat the whole cheese as is if I don't do this. He would eat a kg of cheese in a day!

I also use a fresh butter knife for jam and spreads, never the one that's got butter on it.
I am the same Snip...always wiping everything after use and using different knives for different spreads etc

Part of my cheapskate-ry is jars are cheaper than squeeze bottles for the identical product.
I think we need to work on your OCD. LOL
It really would be ok to wipe the knife and leave it in the sink or on the counter to be sanitized later. If you make a plan, I think you can do it. ;)

Maybe they should change DC to OCD cooking forums?! There seems to be a lot of us that feel this way

I realized today another reason for washing/sanitizing the butter knife...I let the cats lick the butter off.
