To keep those delicate fingers safe from the sharpess of your microplane, seal off one end of an empty paper towel roll, with duct tape or other kind. Store your microplane in it. Use a toilet paper roll for smaller items like peelers and other items that have blades.
Store your small kitchen items like measuring spoons, melon scoop and other hard-to-find items in a small plastic container or baggie.
Keep an Aloe plant in your home. Snipping off the end will help prevent pain, intching and infection from minor burns and insect bites. Squeeze the gel from the cut end. Nature's miracle drug.
