Mrs. Fixit: Alternative uses for salt & pepper shakers

I somehow have ended up with some extra and mismatched salt and pepper shakers. If you have the same problem, don't despair, I have some great ways to put those spares to use!

Don't limit the salt shaker to salt. If you or the kids like cinnamon sugar on your toast, put the mixture into a salt shaker so it's always mixed up and on hand when you want it!

Or shake some powdered sugar on over delicacies for a pretty finish!

Love to bake? Fill a shaker with flour to dust surfaces and baking pans before you roll dough or fill a baking pan.

I like to use cornstarch for household tasks. I keep a shaker in the laundry room to absorb grease stains on laundry before you wash them.

I also like a shaker of cornstarch with my cleaning supplies to absorb excess polish from wood surfaces after cleaning.

If you or your kids like glitter projects, a salt shaker is the perfect tool for shaking that glitter on.

Simple solutions for stray salt and pepper shakers. I'm Mrs. Fixit and it's just that simple!
