Clean the inside of a microwave oven. Saturate a sheet of Bounty Paper Towel with water, place the paper towel in the microwave, and heat on high for four minutes. Let the paper towel cool and use it to wipe down the inside of the microwave oven.
Remove fat from soup. Wrap ice cubes in a sheet of Bounty Paper Towels and skim over the top. The ice attracts the fat, which clings to the paper towels.
Ripen green bananas. Wrap the bananas in a damp sheet of Bounty Paper Towels and place them in a bag, and store in a dark, cool place. Adding an overripe banana to the bag speeds up the ripening by releasing ethylene gas.
Make an impromptu coffee filter. Use a sheet of Bounty Paper Towels in the coffee maker.
Prevent a cake from sticking to the pan. When you take the pan out of the oven, place it on a damp sheet of Bounty Paper Towels for several minutes. The dampness cools the pan and the cake, averting a sticky mess.
Pick up small pieces of broken glass from the floor. Carefully use a sheet of Bounty Paper Towels dampened with water.
Dehydrate fresh vegetables for use in soups and stews. Wash the vegetables and cut them into thin slices or dice them. Place a sheet of Bounty Paper Towels on a cookie sheet, spread the sliced or diced vegetables across the paper towel, and place in the oven set on low heat, occasionally using a wooden spoon or spatula to gently stir the vegetables. When the moisture dries from the vegetables and they attain the thinness of paper, remove from the oven, and store in covered jars or airtight containers in the pantry.
Store meats, chicken, or fish in the freezer. Before wrapping meats, chicken, or fish for the freezer, use a sheet of Bounty Paper Towel to pat dry any moist surfaces.
Fry bacon. After frying bacon, drain the excess grease from the strips by placing them on a sheet of Bounty Paper Towels (or between two sheets), allowing the quicker-picker-upper to absorb the fat.
Line the inside of the crisper drawers. A sheet of Bounty Paper Towels not only absorbs moisture, keeping fruit and vegetables fresh longer, but the towels also make the drawers easy to clean.
