My son corrects me, â€œMummy, itâ€™s buTTer â€“ thereâ€™s a â€˜Tâ€™ in it, not a â€˜Dâ€™.â€ Regardless â€“ if you use sticks or blocks of butter save the wrappers, stick them in a zippy bag and pop them in your fridge. Then, when you need to butter a dish/pan just whip one out and go to town and then throw it away. It never looks like there is enough â€˜butter residueâ€™ to grease your pan but there always is! As a bonus my hands stay cleaner and Iâ€™m using something I would have otherwise thrown in the bin straight away. Iâ€™ve not invited this idea,Â itâ€™s rampant online and other people come up with some alternative suggestions as well. For me itâ€™s been SUCH a game changer I had to share it.
(On a similar note, we also save a couple of those bags that hold the cereal in the cereal box. Because itâ€™s such a super strong bag itâ€™s brilliant for things you will thwack with your rolling pin. (e.g. crush walnuts, flatten chicken, etc.))
