Washing Plastic Food Covers

Purchase the shower cap looking plastic covers for containers at the dollar store, to save on plastic wrap. When they are dirty I put them in a washing bag made for delicates and throw it in with my laundry. Lay them out to dry. It's much easier than washing the food out of the elastic. Shower caps work wonderful for those large dishes you have lost the lid for or cake pans.

Excellent idea for washing these! Wish your tip would have been just one week sooner because I just gave mine away to a neighbor because of the hassle and water used to wash them by hand. LOL! Thumbs up and I'll definitely take your advice when I break down and replace them and at least I have one of those mesh bags, unused, in my stocking drawer! ;-)

I've been doing this for years! It is a real money saver too. :)

Think I need to try this. I usually slide a plate of leftovers into a plastic grocery bag and wrap the ends under, or put a saucer or bread plate on top of a bowl.
