5 Things to Do With Vegetable Peelers
A vegetable peeler sits in the drawer but it’s got more uses than just peeling those spuds. Here are five other ways it can come in handy.
Create Pretty Cake Décor
If you’re trying to decorate that cake with edible treats, use a vegetable slicer to peel fine curlicues of chocolate and impress your guests.
Slice Slivers of Cheese
When you’re trying to create a pretty holiday plate and need cheese in slivers thinner than you can cut with a knife, reach for the vegetable peeler to get the perfect slice.
Sharpen Your Pencils
You’re in a rush to get to a dinner party and just need to add your eyeliner but where’s your sharpener? Don’t worry, a vegetable peeler will do a fine job of bringing your pencil to a point.
Soften Hard Butter Fast
You’re ready to add the butter to your cake mix when you discover that the only sticks you have are all hard as a rock. When you need to soften cold, hard butter in a hurry, shave off what you need with a vegetable peeler. You’ll have soft butter in moments.
Renew Scented Soaps
Ornamental scented soaps are a great addition to the bathroom because they help the room smell great, but after a while, the surface of the exposed soap dries out and causes the scent to fade. To renew the scent, use a vegetable peeler to skim off a thin layer revealing a new moist and fragrant surface.
