Works For Me Wednesday

I actually read this tip as a WFMW idea a few months ago, but I liked it so much that I have to repeat it for everyone!

Want a good scraper for that stuck-on food that just won't come off your pans and pots? Save those fake credit cards that come in the mail. They are absolutely, hands-down, the best thing for getting off that awful stuck-on goop. They are thin enough to get under the goop and flexible enough to take on any corner or shape.

Credit card companies are the ones that send them out the most, but sometimes you can get them from magazine offers, and sometimes from groups like AARP or AAA. They're free - the best price of all! - and since they come along from time to time, you can dispose of them when one wears out and just grab another one.

You could also use old drivers licenses and old credit card, just remember to cut those up when throwing them away, don't toss them like the fakes.

This is a great idea! I bet you could also use Hotel key cards! We seem to have several of those laying around. Thanks!

I give those to my two year old for her "purse." She knows that we "have to pay" when we go to the store!

Too funny, I may have to borrow some back!!
