Nita’s Nifty Trick Of The Day – Pickle Tip
by Dorothy Bourne.
Today I wanted to show a nifty little trick I discovered.
I’ve been practicing making copper balls out of scrap wire and chasing those little rascals around in the pickle was quite time consuming so I came up with a quick fix.
In my kitchen I had some dollar store strainers with plastic netting at the bottom.
I cut off the handle and extra tabs so I was just left with the cup part of the strainer.
Now after I quench my copper ball I drop it in the strainer cup.
When I’m done for the day, I put the whole cup in the pickle.
When it’s done, I take the cup out and put it in the water.
No more chasing little metal balls around for me!
