Don't throw out your plastic wrap cylinder just yet. I've discovered that if it has a small amount of plastic wrap left on its roll, it makes for an excellent rolling pin. That's right! I stumbled upon this idea a while ago when after I moved I realized that I didn't have a rolling pin on hand. So I used the plastic wrap roll and it works actually better than the rolling pin I had.

I forgot to share this many times and as I was just rolling out my pie crust with one, I stopped and came right to the PC to share while it's fresh on my mind. Try this and let me know how it works for you guys.

Extra tip: I reseal the plastic to the roll that may curl from rolling by rolling it a couple of times across the outside of my heated oven door.

Sounds like it could work, but I am thinking only once because it would be hard to wash with the inside being made of cardboard and the outside having multiple layers of plastic wrap for food to get caught in between. But that's just me, with my germ phobia. But I have to give it to you, that's quick thinking when your in a pinch!

That way you don't have all the clutter in the kitchen


drawers and also don't poke yourself with them.

u know plyblossom11, lol you are so right about the germ part, but I am an expert at making breads as I grew up making rotis and tortias and I use the same recipe method for both my tortias and pie crust so I do it in a snap, lol and my little cylinder rolling thingy has not a drop of dough on it. My family laughs at me saying I could do this all day with my eyes closed and still get it right, but one time since using this it got a little too dusty and I peeled a layer of the plastic off til it was a clean surface of plastic again, tapped it on my heated oven door and kept on moving. its just simply "improvising extreme" at its best and making good out of what you have onhand. Hope you guys enjoy and hope it works for you. Thanks again :)
