7 MORE Uses for Cereal Box Liners
Posted by Jamie Novak
A few weeks ago I shared with you a whole bunch of reuses for the inner plastic lining in cereal and snack bags. Well, I've got even more for you! I just couldn't stop. Keep those requests coming!
1 If you've got snack food in the house, you've got liners. Reuse them!
2 As a fresh food storage bag. Just baked up a batch of cookies? After cooling store the treats in the liner either in or out of the cookie jar.
3 As a shelf liner. Great for the pantry (and no more honey dripping on your shelf!). Also great as drawer liners too for the vanity, refrigerator crispers, and office drawers.
4 Want to bake up some biscuits for dinner? Add the mix and water to the liner and mush the ingredients. Or use as a marinating bag for meat. Shake and bake mix with diced potatoes works too!
5 Storing frozen foods: Save time by whipping up extra pancakes and freezing them in the liners. Just cut liner and use wax paper to separate layers.
6 As a flexible cutting mat. Use the liner during cooking as a flexible mat for things like peeling potatoes or slicing apples.
7 Does your recipe call for crushing potato chips to coat the fish? Contain the mess by filling the liner with the chips before smashing them.
8 Protect surfaces while working on a craft project.
