I haven't seen this idea on blogland so I'm sharing it myself. By now, we all know how wonderful canning jars are for freezing so many different foods and if you're like me, you write the name of the food on the lid with a Sharpie marker because Sharpies are permanent ink, right? You might be surprised to know how easy it is to erase the marker once you've used up the food 'cause really, there's no sense in throwing away a perfectly good lid just because it has writing on it if you're only using it in the freezer. All you need is a cotton ball and some alcohol....the Sharpie wipes right off and the lid is now clean and ready for more writing. Take a look:
It's that simple. Just a couple swipes with an alcohol soaked cotton ball and the lid is free of marker.
