      Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti-wetcounter.jpgNext 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!


      Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti-cantaloupe.jpg

      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.

      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.

      Thanks for this information. This annoys me also. Since I only have a notebook, it also either delays loading page or freezes computer. Thanks again.
