I bought a bunch of white dishcloths at the dollar store that I use instead of paper towels in the kitchen. If they get stained, I can always wash them in bleach, and they are easily identified by their white colour.

Pouring from my olive oil bottle can cause drips to flow down the side of the bottle, making a mess. I solved this problem by setting the bottle on a folded square of paper towel, pulling the towel up around the sides of the bottle (as if you were wrapping a bottle of wine) and securing the paper towel around the bottle with a rubber band. The towel catches any drips that may occur. Change the towel every few months. Clean bottle and hands! :-)
Making your salad ahead is a time saver and keeping the greens fresh and crisp is easy. Wet a few paper towels with cold water then squeeze out the excess. Lay the paper towels over the salad and add a few ice cubes to keep cool. To serve just take the paper towels off and discard. Your salad will be nice and crisp.
I still splurge on pizza & pepperoni is my favorite. I take the pepperoni & set it on a paper towel on a plate. I cover it with another paper towel & microwave for a few seconds. The heat cooks the a lot of the fat out of the pepperoni & the paper towel absorbs it.
Bonus is that the pepperoni gets a little crispy - oh YUM!
