Cleaning and cooking oil
Coping with cooking oil is something I am always pondering. It’s not supposed to go down the drain so how do you dispose of it? Hubby keeps broken cups by the sink and lets the fat cool and set before throwing it out, but I don’t like the constant messy look, as there always seems to be one or two around.
A couple of recent tips I read about:
- Pour grease into egg shells and dispose of them when set
- Reuse oil where possible – it can be filtered with kitchen paper or coffee filters.
Always worth a reminder of places one might forget in the cleaning schedule:
- Phone screen
- Light switches
- Remote controls
- Toilet handles
- Rubbish bins (especially the kitchen bin)
And remember to replace:
- Toothbrush / toothbrush head
