Quick Counter Clean-up
When you have a lot of chopping and other prep to do for a meal, put an old bath towel down on your counter for your work surface. It will absorb any liquid spills (this is especially handy when working up a lot of tomatoes for canning!), act as a hot pad, and if you have any solid spills all you have to do is fold it up, shake it clean outside or over the trash can and throw it in the wash!
Not only does this save time during clean up, but you'll also use less paper towels, which means saving money! :)
