I get lectured on occasion by the hubby if any grease at all happens to do down the drain. I try really hard to not let this happen and I reuse tin cans. It’s just not very pretty to have this sitting out on my sink.
My remedy: scrapbook paper and a little tape. I simply cut the scrapbook paper to size and tape it to the can.
This looks so much better and it take about 2 minutes. Very little effort or cost so I don't feel bad about tossing it when it's time.
