TIP OF THE DAY: Uses For Newspaper In The Kitchen

What do you do when you’re finished with the newspaper?

Hopefully, you recycle it.

But before it hits the recycling bin, consider these uses:

  • Keep the bottom of your vegetable drawer clean by lining it with newspaper. It will absorb liquid and odors. Change the paper weekly.
  • Use newspaper to ripen fruit. If your avocados, bananas, peaches or other fruits need ripening, conventional wisdom is to put them in a paper bag. The paper keeps in the ethylene gas—a ripening agent—the fruit gives off. If you don’t have a paper bag, wrap the fruit in newspaper, which does the same thing.
