Whenever a recipe calls for cutting up marshmallows, (or anything sticky and sweet, such as dates, dried apricots, etc.), dip your kitchen shears in confectioners sugar between cuttings to keep them from sticking to the blades.

After using a garlic press, clean it out using your vegetable scrubber brush. Place the bristles on the part where the garlic comes out and push bristles into the holes several times while holding under running water. Works best if you do this right after using the press before garlic skin dries and sticks to the press.

When cleaning up the kitchen, I put all the silverware and cooking utensils in a jar or bowl with hot soapy water. By the time I'm ready to wash dishes, caked on gunk has softened and cleaning is easy.

To easily clean stuck food out of the grooves of spatulas and slotted spoons, cut a small U shape piece out of the end of a drinking straw. It is the perfect width to fit the slots, the straight edges will scrape the food and it is flexible.

Can't get the garlic bits out of your press? Run a chocolate kiss through it, then run under hot water. The chocolate pushes the garlic out, then the water melts the chocolate out. Clean press every time!

And waste a perfectly good chocolate kiss? I think not :-) How 'bout using a toothpick, and then eating the kiss? (07/06/2005)
