Ring Around the Sippy: A Clean Fridge Hack
When the ghostly Rorschach of milk rings finally spelled out "wash me," I launched a full-fridge Silkwood scrubdown. The fridge gleamed as I went to return the slightly sticky sippy. Would this cleanliness unravel faster than a celebrity marriage? I couldn't bear the thought.
I grabbed a clean cottage cheese tub lid from the cabinet and we instituted the first Jones' fridge coaster. What I thought would only prevent cup rings and grubbiness ended up giving us a single location for partial cups. Far less milk goes to waste now, and we've vanquished the mystery cups lurking in the fridge's dark corners.
We recently added a second lid for baby bottles and breast milk bags.
