Besides a pillowcase takes up less room than a salad spinner does! My salad spinner was about $3.00 or so, but it takes up one of my tiny kitchen shelves in my cabinets, alone, something that I didn't consider when purchasing it.
Wal-mart has salad spinners for $3. They are not huge so if you are making an extremely large salad you may have to put your lettuce in a couple of times but still sounds better to me. My neighbors would think I went off my rocker if I tried your hint (even though it probably does work!) LOL, I'm sorry, but this was funny and I'm trying to get the picture in my mind!!!
I don't guess I find this to be good advice....seems like more trouble than just spending a cheap amt on a salad spinner from a store....plus I live in IL and can't always go outside. I don't own a salad spinner anyway and just pull off how much lettuce I need, rinse and dry on paper towels.
I go one step further . I never swing it over my head but place pillowcase in the wash machine on spin & let'er go .Been doing this for years & greens come out bone dry. I put it all in a tupperware container with a paper towel at bottom & top & into refridge it goes to crisp up. Try it it is a great tip. Don't forget to close up top of pillowcase with a rubber band so washer won't have lettuce flying about.
I don't understand! The salad spinner I bought was only about $5.00. And I've used almost everyday for 31/2 years. Send me your address and I'll send you a gift cert. for one.
This really needs to be done outside as you indicated. If you don't, you'll be flinging droplets of water all over the place.
The first time I didn't feel like going outside.
