Keep Boards & Bowls in Place

Place a damp washcloth under the bowl you’re using to mix ingredients. The cloth keeps the bowl from spinning on the countertop, and you can use it when you’re cleaning up afterward. —Jean Dietz, Lebanon, Illinois

To keep a cutting board from sliding around, my husband places a piece of waffled rubber shelf liner on the counter under the board. It doesn’t budge. Plus, the liner is easy to roll up for storage. —Rita W., Livingston, Montana
