Alternative Use of Wine Cork

Casa Quickie: Let Wine Lend a Hand

If you need a reason to justify all the glasses of wine you're consuming, consider the benefits a used up wine cork can offer. Instead of tossing the porous stopper into the recycling bin, reuse it in your own home. It turns out corks make fine knife cleaners. Next time your blades need a cleaning, send a cork in to do the job rather than a rough-sided sponge. Just run the edge of the knife across the cork. It'll leave the steel utensil with a mirror image instead of a scratched and dull surface! Who knew?
