The EASY Way to Measure Shortening...

Monday, March 25, 2013

I love to bake, but I hate the mess of cleaning measuring cups
that have been used for "sticky" ingredients.

Nothing is worse than trying to wash out peanut butter, honey or 
shortening from a measuring cup.

I used this EASY tip recently...

So the next time you need to measure something "sticky"
just reach for the plastic wrap and see how easy this tip is.

Enjoy your day!


  1. that's a great idea....'cause you are right, it is messy!!

  2. It is messy, but I would think that trying to get honey off plastic wrap would be even messier. How does that work?

  3. A very good tip! Thank you!

  4. Super idea! I thought you were going to share the displaced water trick.

  5. Yes, I've actually done this and it really helps with the clean up!
    Have a great week!

  6. This is nothing short of genius! Where have you been? Awesome!
