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!

greasy soup?? lay strips of paper towel across the top of the pot to remove excess fat when you don't have time to chill first!
