One of the great mysteries is how the utensil drawers get so grubby when the utensils are clean when they are put away. If anyone can throw some light on this I would appreciate it, but in the meantime two of my kitchen drawers are clean again after a blitz yesterday.
Cleaning brush (for the juicer)
Fine bladed knife
Corn cob holders
Wine vacuum seal
Corkscrews x 2
Can openers x 2 different styles
This is in addition to the knives in the knife block and 2 jars of utensils which are on the bench. Everything in the utensil jars gets used at least once per week.
Notepaper (an old desk calendar)
Jar of rubber bands
Black felt-tipped pens x 2
Wind-up torches x 2
Set of small screwdrivers
Scissors x 2
Zip-lock bags (rewashed)
Worn-out tea towels (for covering defrosting food etc)
Bag of twist ties
Bread bags (rewashed)
Cling wrap }
Alfoil } – these have been sitting here for at least 10 years
Freezer go-between } will not be replaced whenever I use them up
Baking paper – I bought this last week as it is apparently essential when
Cut milk container of bits – homemade plant labels, spare O-ring for the breadmaker, labels for homemade cordial etc.
I regularly clean a drawer/cupboard or two each week, so although it seems like a never-ending merry-go-round it is never a huge job.
