Use bread to pick up broken glass

September 14 | meganfinley

With an apartment full of furry creatures, I always freak out when glass breaks in my kitchen. Thanks to the Tasted YouTube channel, I now have a good way to make sure glass shards shall be no threat to paws and crumb-searching tongues.

Do you think this'll work with all types of bread, like sourdough?

  1. I usually use a damp paper towel. Same basic idea in that the teeny shards stick to it.

    3 agree
  2. I never have paper towel…and with how glass shatters on my floor we almost never get all the pieces. This is so freakin smart its ridiculous.

    1 agrees
  3. I would hesitate to use bread since everything is so expensive these days. I like the idea of a paper towel as a previous poster suggested.

  4. I use duck tape, or a sticky lint brush thing, cause it won't miss any bits.

    1 agrees
  5. I'm thinking I'd probably use the end pieces that I usually feed to ducks

    3 agree
  6. It seems like a waste when a damp sponge does the trick just as well.

    • …Except for a damp sponge cleans the same dishes that go into my mouth.

    • But then you have a possibly shard filled sponge. Unless you make one sponge the GLASS CLEANING UP SPONGE.

      • That was so clear in my mind I didn't even think to mention it! Of course, this would be the sponge that's used to scrub the toilet, or any sponge that just doesn't come near food-related items.

  7. The best bread is the wonderbread style squishy bread. I've done this a few times, but I usually only have super dense gluten-free stuff, which doesn't work!

    1 agrees
  8. The comment at the end makes me think though… what about the wild animals that like to eat things out of the dump. Or raccoons getting into things. I would feel bad about them eating glass too.

    1 agrees
