We're thinking alike! When I put my hummingbird feeder out, I got a group of brushes that came together. I use 2 sizes for the hummer feeder, including one that is thin, as you describe. The rest I use for jars, and so forth.
I will put my hand in a jar to clean it, because my small hand fits into a lot of them, but I try not to when I can help it, because they can break, which is extremely dangerous. One of the brushes, especially, is great at keeping my hands out where they belong.
So, how do you like the All pods?
I'm glad that you solved your 'fridge problem! Good thinking!
Well, I would have said the multiple brushes for my most recent one...but you've already done it, lol!
Since you try to save water...like I do...I just prepped and cooked some vegetables for the freezer. They, of course, needed washing, and I am having water issues at the moment...more on that elsewhere.
First, I prepped 2 bunches of broccoli, 3 of collards, and 2 of celery.
I cut them in an order...broccoli, then greens, then celery, in order of how much dirt needs washing off of them.
Then, I set up a container to wash them in.
First is the broccoli, as it's never dirty per se.
Then, reserving the water in the container, I wash the de-ribbed greens next. They can be dirty, but not too bad.
Then, after I've separated the tops of the celery from the ribs, and removed the bottoms, I wash the ribs next...in the water still reserved, followed by the tops, then the bottoms, because the ribs are the least dirty, the bottoms the most.
This water can water plants.
Then, I cut everything to specs, freezing the tops and bottoms of the celery raw, for broth making. And, finally cook the rest to bag and freeze.
My favorite vege tip is to take a good potato brush, and use it to scrub the celery ribs when washing them. Nothing makes faster work of both sides of the ribs, and it actually removes the coating on them.
Well, I'm heading to bed after applying some sports cream to my painful shoulders and neck. Doing all the prep and cooking takes some time, and my RA/shoulders aren't very happy with me.
Thanks, this is one of my favorite subjects, whenever someone has something to share.
Love All Life; Thank You For Posting! :)
