Mom Shares Game-Changing Hack for Disposing of Hot Grease Without Pouring It Down the Drain


Cooking and cleaning are two completely separate tasks. While some people like to cook, that doesn’t mean they like to clean. In fact, some people (I raise my hand) may even decide what to cook based on how difficult or easy it is to clean up the mess afterwards.

One of the worst messes to clean up is grease. After cooking steak or burgers, you may end up with a pan full of grease. The dilemma is what to do with all that grease without pouring it down the sink.

Personally, we save the bacon grease in jars to cook with later. The flavor is incredible. However, we don’t always want to save the fat.

One woman shared with us an extremely easy way to get rid of excess grease without it going down the drain. All you need is a sheet of aluminum foil.

The woman explained that she takes a piece of aluminum foil and completely covers her sink drain with it. But she doesn’t just cover the drain. She makes a sort of little bowl with the foil. That way, she can easily pour the grease from her pan into the foil instead of into the sink.

What happens next is that you wait. After a while, as the grease cools, it goes from a liquid to a solid state. Once the grease solidifies, the Facebook user explained that she rolled up the foil and threw it in the trash. Nothing could be easier.

If you want to do something useful with the grease instead of throwing it away, another Facebook user shared that excess grease has an amazing use outside of the kitchen. She uses it to kill weeds by pouring a little grease where she doesn’t want the weeds to grow!

Whether you use the grease for cooking, killing weeds or are looking for an easy way to dispose of it, there is seriously no excuse to pour it down the sink anymore.

How do you usually get rid of excess grease?

Will you try the foil trick?
