Corn De-silker - shuck an ear of corn and then wipe it down from tip to base with a dampened paper towel-the silk will come off in a single stroke.

Wax remover - place a paper towel over melted wax on the carpet, then iron-the wax will melt into the towel.

Tea strainer - did the bag break in your tea? Layer 2 paper towels over another cup and carefully pour the tea through-the leaves will stay on top.

Beat-A-Leaf During the fall, put a leaf between two paper towels and beat with a hammer-- a print of the leaf will be made on the towels. This is a fun activity for kids, just don't let them play with hammers without parental supervision. Yikes!
