Use an expired credit card as a scraper while washing dishes. It easily removes stuck on food without marking the dish or pan. I also use the no-name promotional cards that I get in the mail from the credit card companies. As long as they're plastic, they will work.

What a great idea! I will have to remember to do that.

Exactly! Your idea is great may you come up with many more of them. Reuse is the answer to many things from just saving money to Global Warming. Keep on reusing

It also works for a frost scraper if you cannot find the one that is made for it. (10/15/2007)
They are also good for scraping off wallpaper. (10/15/2007)
They also work great for scraping gum off floors, dried glue, hardened candies etc. You can also punch holes in them and use them as large key tabs for kids, zipper pulls, luggage tags etc. With a little sanding, they are also easily paintable.
