    • Hmmm, well my Parmesan cheese generally comes in a wedge; the powdered stuff is truly not as economical as you think, except that you get it cheaper because the pre-grated (powdered stuff) is coated with cornstarch or powder, so you will never have the real thing if you are buying a powdered cheese. Geeze Louise!

      About the covers, they also cover a nice box of mixed WHOLE peppercorns; I would be able to use those, or various other like containers, for the uses mentioned above.

      Thanks!

  1. i love this idea, i used a 1/2 pint jar with parmesan lid to store the homemade taco seasoning. I love it… :lets-eat:

  2. thanks so much for this info! i have been making my own gel air freshners and this will work great them! i can think of a lot of ways i can use these handy little lids!!

  3. great idea… but why not just use the entire container? i can understand if you use a small pint jar, but why not reuse the parmesan jar itself?

  4. thank you!! i never thought to try the lid on a mason jar! i hate the plastic container if i need to keep it in the cupboard or on the counter, but just the lid isn’t bad!

    the reason i like a glass jar better is it doesn’t get knocked over as easily. i tend to get rammy in the kitchen and it irritates me when i slide things over and they fall over. silly i know :dunno:

  5. great idea. as soon as my parmesan cheese gets used up i will put this on my laundry sauce that i am in the process of making now. thanks.

      do a big spaghetti dinner and your old cheese will be gone in no time; (make sure you have the replacement; people go mad when they don’t get their parmesan on top of their pasta!)

      btw, you don’t have to have that lid to make the laundry sauce; it is just a suggestion from the author.

  6. since we shop for bulk spices we have been using these containers for awhile ….love the idea for using for our pets treats

  7. I use the lids on my mason jars in the past. Most peanut butter jar lids also fit the regular mouth mason jars. Saves on buying those plastic lids from the mason jar manufacturers. I used peanut butter jar lids for my laundry sauce and dishwasher sauce.

    I also used the whole parmesan container to give my son some of my laundry sauce to take home. He’s 21 and on his own so he was
    “grateful” to get free laundry detergent. Love both the dishwasher and laundry sauce.

    Going to try more ideas soon! Thanks!

      Here’s a hint. You can get Mason jars by buying pasta sauces in those lovely jars that also have measurements on them. How awesome is that?

  8. If you like upcycling, try using old ketchup bottles for holding salt. It is so much easier to refill a salt shaker with the small hole. No funnel needed.

    I used to buy in bulk and this make it easier to store and refill.

  9. Plastic is permerable and will pick up other flavors and odors in a cupboard. I prefer using glass containers for storage and now that I know these covers will fit glass, I will have better/easier to use covers for the herbs that I dry from the garden. Thanks for sharing this idea.
