Use Credit Cards for Cleaning

Put all those credit card offers to good use. I have a place in my kitchen drawer to save the John Doe, or your name here plastic credit cards I get in the mail. I later use them for almost anything. Scraping teflon pans (you pay 2$ for a plastic tool), cleaning and scraping anything nasty, because you can throw it away when you are done. I have used them scrape hardened wax, remove excess foam insulation (the stuff in a can), scrape up built up fabric softener from the washer. The shape makes them perfect for getting into corners and tight spaces, and best of all they are free!

Boy, I get a lot of these and usually just destroy them. This is a great idea to recycle them. (11/10/2008)

Use Credit Cards for Cleaning

I have used these for sometime now. They work well for most cleaning jobs; flour off the counter, cleaning my ceramic stove top. They are better than the ones you buy as they seem to be thinner but sturdy.

I also save the credit cards and have used them for the same purpose. They come in handy when cleaning the tight space between my stove and the counter top. (11/10/2008)
