Use bread to pick up broken glass #Cleaning#bread#great-ideas September 14 | Megan Finley meggyfin 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? ᔥ Doobybrain.com Join our community! Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here.

Show/Hide comments [ 11 ] I usually use a damp paper towel. Same basic idea in that the teeny shards stick to it. 4 agree Reply 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 Reply 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. Reply I use duck tape, or a sticky lint brush thing, cause it won't miss any bits. 1 agrees Reply I'm thinking I'd probably use the end pieces that I usually feed to ducks 3 agree Reply It seems like a waste when a damp sponge does the trick just as well. Reply …Except for a damp sponge cleans the same dishes that go into my mouth. Reply But then you have a possibly shard filled sponge. Unless you make one sponge the GLASS CLEANING UP SPONGE. Reply 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. Reply 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 Reply 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I would feel bad about them eating glass too. 2 agree Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
