Nice idea of our maid servant

I and Professor consume so many tablets, capsules for our health issues; most of them come in blister packs, once all are consumes we throw the empty blister packs. Our wise maid servant uses them for scrubbing utensils; earlier she used scrubbers made from steel and scrubber pads. How do you scrub your utensils while washing, try this tip. Hope it will help. Please respond, share your tips and comment. Kalyani God bless you

we do not consume that much medicine, but to be environmental friendly, we use a loofa, it's better than synthetic scrub because it's bio-degradable being made from an edible vegetable called "patola" or sponge gourd that has been left to mature then dried.

Ill try the capsule packs. At home I also do some dishwashing jobs. I dont know how to cook so usually I am the one cleaning the dishes if no one do it. If it is okay I will let you know. Thank you.

Wow, it is a great way to reuse something. Haven't heard it before, thanks for sharing! Anyway, a question: won't the blister leave scratches on the utensils?

Hi Kalyni, thanks for sharing this useful info here. Another good way to recycle unwanted blister packs. So far, i don't take any capsules with blister packs. But my mother do have some capsules in blister packs. I will share this info with her, see whether she interested to use it, as an alternative way to scrub kitchen utensils. Hope you and Professor are always fine over there...

dear maa, That's really smart of your house maid (^_^) I only use foam for my utensils not to damaged the teflon (non-stick) and not to leave scratches with stainless cooking wares. I hope your health is fine now, as well as papa. Hugs to you always dear maa,pa and Shubee daughter, jaiho®

Good evening to you Maa! during my early morning. What a great earth saving tip for us. I don't use many medications that come in blister packs but will be sure to let some of the people I know that do use them that they are very useful this way. With so many items today being recycled this is another one to add to our list of to dos. I have not seen you around much and hope that you and Papa are doing okay. Have a great night.

Wow! That is a great idea! I do not use many medications anymore but if I ever do, that is a great way to recycle! Kudos to your maid servant!! I fired my aid yesterday because she fell asleep on the job. So it's good you have a responsible one!
