    • Sopping Countertop Prevention

      How to keep your counters cleanNext time you have to cut up a watermelon, tomatoes, cantaloupe or any other over-ripe or overly juicy fruit or veggie, you'll appreciate this valuable tip to help keep your counter tops clean and mess free!

      Preparing fruits and veggies can make a nasty mess of the countertops and floors from the sticky drips!




      To avoid a nasty mess place the cutting board within a large baking sheet. The sheet will collect any juices that run out of the fruit/veggies and keep the mess contained. To prevent the baking sheet from sliding around during cutting, place a hand towel underneath it.



      Avoid a Sticky mess on your counter-tops

      Simply drain the juice into the sink, scrape off any seeds in the rubbish or compost pile and your kitchen countertops stay clean and sticky-free!

        Common sense...where was mine that I didn't think of this?

        Very good idea. I think a dish tray, the old fashioned type that sits under a dish drying rack would work also. Possibly eliminate the need for the tea towel underneath. You are an inspiration to me. Thank you.
