How To Clean Plastic Food Tipping Tongs Using A Paper Towel

They are one of the things I love the most about home decorating. For my friend’s wedding, I decided to give them a try.

I have been trying for years to figure out how to get rid of the plastic food tipping tongs that come in plastic containers but I ended up spending too much time cleaning it off with a hair straightener before even starting to use them. My new tip is simple: just gently wipe the tip with a paper towel. It’s not gross at all. You can even put it on the food.

It is worth the trouble just to wipe it off. You will feel great afterwards.

So, without further ado, here is my quick and dirty tip on how to clean plastic food tipping tongs using a paper towel in less than 20 minutes:

· Set the food on a baking sheet or baking sheet with parchment paper.

· Take a paper towel and dry thoroughly the tip.

· After it has dried, place it on the tip of an uncut chopstick.

· Press lightly to get it wet but not so much that it burns the skin.

· Carefully push the chopstick into the wet tip.

· Place it on the food and gently wipe it off with a paper towel.

· If you don’t get a good grip, pull it out with a paper towel.

· Remove the chopstick, put it on the paper towel and repeat the process.

· If you are doing it in a hurry, put the chopstick in the food and then put the paper towel on top of it.

· Use the paper towel to wipe off the surface of the food as well as the plastic tip.

· Repeat until you have gotten rid of all the plastic items except the chopstick.

· Place it on a plate or something else nice and clean to store it.

· Reassemble the chopstick and use it to eat your food.

It is worth it if you have clean plastic food tipping tongs in your cupboards.

I do it to all of our Chinese food because the plastic pieces are so hard to clean that there is almost no way to do it.

Doing it with paper towels is actually more fun and is probably quicker than using a hair straightener! It is actually very easy to do and you can do it yourself.

I have shared before that I have tried to get rid of the plastic food tipping tongs with hair straighteners. But they tend to just break when I get to the tip. I guess I will have to stick with chopsticks this time around.
