Kitchen Tip Tuesday - Potato sponge
I use the sponges with the scrubby part on one side and the sponge on the other for washing dishes - you know what I mean?
Anyway - when I cook potatoes with the skins on - I like to scrub the skins real well. I have found that the scrubby part of a new sponge works great.
But I didn't want anyone to use my potato sponge for anything else - like washing dishes or wiping the counter - so, since I only use the scrubby part of the sponge, I took a permanent marker and wrote a large P on the sponge side - P for potato.
I keep the sponge under the sink and have let my DH know what the P means.
So far so good - no mixing it up with the other sponges.
Another tip - green sponges are what I normally use for dishes - so I bought pink ones for washing the sink - Pink for sink, so it is easy for me and DH to remember :)
