How to Get Rid of Grease

How to Get Rid of Grease


It’s hard to argue that bacon isn’t awesome, but the resulting grease is one huge hassle. It seems like an easy fix is to just pour that leftover grease down the drain. The garbage disposal and water can handle that, right? Wrong. You should never dump grease into the drain. Greasy drains create grime and clogs that haunt every plumber’s nightmares. To avoid shelling out hard-earned cash for drain repairs, follow these steps to dispose of grease in a safe and long-term way.

Total time: 1 hour
Materials: Grease, empty can or jar

Directions:

1. After you’ve enjoyed that delicious bacon, let the grease cool to room temperature in the pan that you were using, up to 1 hour. This will prevent any accidental spills that could leave nasty burns.

2. When the grease is sufficiently cooled, pour the grease into the empty jar. Pour the grease slowly to make sure you get as much as possible into the can. This step can get messy so place a paper towel under the jar.

3. Place the lid on the jar and set aside for next time.
4. When the jar is full of solidified grease, you can toss it safely in the garbage.

Do you have a favorite dish in your kitchen? My favorite is my cast iron skillet. That is by far the best skillet that I own. Now, the only problem is I have to wash it by hand not in the dishwasher, plus I have to get a good soap to cut through the grease that builds up on it.

My previous cast iron skillet was well loved until one day I got lazy and decided to stick it in the dishwasher, friends, this is a very bad idea. My husband was not thrilled with that move. He’s the king of the dishes in our home and he’s extremely particular, especially with the cast iron skillets. So, when he saw that I got lazy that day and tossed it in the dishwasher…it was an eye popping moment. Just saying.

So, now I’m on to a new cast iron skillet, and I am doing my best to take care of it because I use it several times a week. Along with using this skillet, I also have a cast iron grill pan that needs to be washed by hand too, plus you know the rest of my kitchen as well.

What I love about this is I can use it on my range too! We recently went back to a gas range from the smooth top electric range and I forgot how much I had to clean the gas range before. Now, I have an all in one soap that can do both the dishes and tackle the range! That allows me to save time in the kitchen to spend with my family.
