It’s amazing the things you do assuming everyone does as well, only to find out that you’re a total grandma.
I save butter wrappers. I don’t remember where I first heard the tip–I suspect an octogenarian–but for as long as I can remember I’ve saved my used butter wrappers in the freezer in a ziploc bag. I do this because those wrappers are excellent for when a recipe calls for you to grease and flour a pan. I take a wrapper out of the bag and rub it against whatever needs greasing. The heat of my hand melts the butter, so I can use the wrapper immediately. Because it’s a wrapper, my hands don’t get greasy handling butter/shortening/olive oil. I know it sounds prissy, but I hate the feeling of greasy fingers after greasing a pan. Then you have to wash your hands before you get the flour or you wind up greasing and flouring your fingers.* Forget it. If I didn’t have those wrappers, I would never grease a pan! I’d use Pam or some spray something just to avoid the hassle.**
*Unless I’m using coconut oil. Then I rub it into my hands, which are usually like crepe paper and can use moisturizing.
**This isn’t a post I was going to put up. I wouldn’t call it post material, you know? But my site continues to have problems and I needed to put something up so that I can see who is able to access my site. Hopefully this goofy post is of use to someone besides my hosting company!
