I use a cut off schweppes tonic 1 liter bottle as a wide mouth funnel.

I use cut off plastic bottles, too, for funnels!!!! And I have different sizes........if you run out of coffee filters you can use a paper towel(s) in a pinch......just as long as they are not scented........

Take one of the round containers you buy potato salad in at the grocery store. Line it with Saran Wrap/plastic cling wrap and use it to form your hamburgers or chicken burgers. Makes a perfect, round burger and they are individually wrapped so they can store if you don't want to cook a full pound at one time. (Learned from Guy Fieri and used many times. I love that man!!)

For those without dishwashers...

Save a pump bottle from shampoo or hand soap.
Use it for your dish soap.
Very handy to be able to just squirt a dollop of soap into the sink
without having to pick up a bottle or open a lid!

I use a wine bottle and alcohol pour spout for my dishwashing liquid. I love it and have been doing it for years.

I fill an old hand soap pump bottle with water and squirt in some dish soap to use as hand soap at the sink.
