Hmm, isoproponol is sort of a go to for me. It's great for ink.Isopropanol would be best for it taxy. Not saying the WD40 won't work but the other will be much faster and disintegrate the grunge.
That's what I call a junk drawer.I don't have a junk drawer in my kitchen. I have five, foot-wide drawers and there isn't enough space to use one for junk. Okay, there is some junk in the bottom one, but it's some stuff that we bought for kitchen use, that was small and didn't work so well or wasn't useful and we haven't thrown it out yet. The rest of the bottom drawer has stuff that we use less often.
Well, yes, sort of. There is nothing in there that isn't for kitchen use. No paper clips, no hammers, no notepads, ... Everything is for food prep or serving food. E.g., the taco holders. Those don't get used unless we are having hard shell tacos. I'll have a look, but I actually think there is only one item that should be gotten rid of. It's more of a temporary holding spot while we argue about whether or not it should go. I'm thinking of a plastic tea leaf holder that DH bought. If he wants to keep it, he can put it with his camping gear. Otherwise it's going in the "to be donated" bag or the garbage. There really isn't anything in there that someone who doesn't cook would usually consider a "tool".That's what I call a junk drawer.
Well, I did write that for humour, but it was true. I doubt anyone would really want to use a grotty garbage disposal for peeling potatoes. How would you even get one clean enough?LOL - all in all, pretty funny - not really a time saver when you consider add in a trip to the ER. However, might be drier and a less messy way than the Russian's!
I'll try the rubber band, but I'm not giving up on pliers. You want the cap off a quart of Land O Lakes half and half? Pliers, pal. Just don't squeeze hard. And afterward, invert the cap and slit it 6 o'clock to 12, and from, 9 to 3. Will still providfe a seal but open easily.No, not pliers on the small caps. It's too easy to deform them with the pliers. Whenever you get a wide elastic band, like with broccoli, save it. Those are very useful for those small caps and for jar lids. I use that before I use the screwdriver or strap wrench. Or, instead of a wide rubber band, rubber tubing works really well.
