The question last week about cleaning up an epic honey spill in the pantry reminded us of this tip: Store your honey in a ramekin or small bowl.
Honey jars tend to accumulate drips and sticky spots on their outsides, and eventually this stickiness winds up on your pantry shelves too. So we've developed a habit of always storing our honey bottle in a little ramekin. This ramekin is much easier to pull out and wash clean from time to time.
This is also a good idea for molasses and corn syrup — two other ingredients that tend to leave their (sticky) mark in the cupboard!
Do you have any other good tips for keeping your pantry clean, and for preventing sticky, oily spills?
