Me, neither. I rarely use it for clothes, much less parchment paper

Geez GG,

Feel kind of silly mentioning this, but I have used it to make duplicate sewing patterns that I like.
Saved me some money having an already pre cut, tougher pattern sheet to work with. Roll out, pin,cut, sew.

If I sewed, I would probably use it more. That's not one of my hobbies, though.

I like Katie's method.

My work table has a straight edge to it. I take the sheet curled-side-up and draw it gently across the edge, almost like pulling it off its roll again. Makes it flat enough, no iron required. For the most part, my iron is parked in the ironing board rack on the landing half-way down the basement steps. The table is a 180-degree turn from my counter.

Put it flat upon the counter with curls down and use of a rolling pin back and forth until it lies flat.

Mamma taught me of this!

Love,

CG, that's what I do. Your explanation is much better.

I've seen those in the store. They wouldn't fit in my bags-and-wraps drawer, though.

I bought 100 flat sheets from the Webstaurant site. The parchment was worthless. Everything stuck to it.

I've always creased mine but next time I'm trying the crumpled up method.
