Rather than store our bulk goods or my homemade snacks in plastic containers, I’ve been keeping any jars I buy or have bought in the past. (I have quite a little collection now.) They look so pretty and uniform and it’s easy to snatch a glance and know exactly what I need or what I’m low on. The only trouble is they seem to hold dearly to the smell of whatever they contained before…
I’m finding the trick is to let them air out for weeks on the shelf before I refill them. Seems to be the only way.
Know of any other tricks?
