Use Credit Cards for Cleaning

I keep outdated credit cards or other laminated cards at my kitchen sink. Whenever I have something which sticks on the bottom of the Teflon pan and does not come off easily, I use the old laminated card. It does not scratch the Teflon and in most cases cleans the pan like a charm.

I also live in Belleville, Ontario, Canada. Those little gems also work great in a pinch for scrapping a light frost off your car windshield in the mornings. Nice to a neighbour is using this wonderful site.

Hmm. I need something a little bigger than a credit card. I use a non-stick spatula instead.

They also work great for scraping bread dough and flour off of your counter after kneading bread. For bread dough I use it like a ice scraper and for the flour I use it to push all the flour into a pile. It's much tidier than wiping all that flour off with a wet dishcloth.

I have a pile of them I save and use them to spread paint or glue in my arts and crafts! And have also used to scrape candle wax that dripped on table!
