How do you remove peanut butter from a knife? Up to this point, my methods have included the following:
1) Use a paper towel to wipe off the knife. Then, place knife in dishwasher.
Cons: wasteful, not earth-friendly, multi-step process
2) Rinse knife and gum up dish brush with leftover peanut butter.
Pros: Knife ultimately gets clean.
Cons: Dish brush is gummed up with leftover peanut butter. Duh.
3) Leave knife in sink for two days and hope that the peanut butter somehow sloughs off on its own.
Pros: little to no effort
Cons: Many. Chiefly the fact that the knife never gets clean.
I lamented on Twitter this morning that there is no good way to do this. Right away I got back multiple responses identifying the simplest, most effective method.
USE YOUR TONGUE.
Hello. Why did I never think of that? Believe it or not, I have a college degree and everything.
Now I need to know... am I the only moron who hadn't thought of that? Please, make me feel better.
In other news, you guys, I saw Harry Potter last night! I LOVED IT. I was surprised by how funny it was. Not to mention sad. I may or may not have shed a few tears. Now, I'm considering reading book 6 again just to remember all the detail that the movie left out. Book nerd alert!
