Part 3 of 3: How to Cook for a Crowd | Clean-Up Strategies

Welcome back to our three-part series on cooking for a crowd with eco-friendly kitchen products from Two Pillars! In the first two parts, we covered cooking and serving tips using the Duo Cover®, ZipBag®, Swedish Dishcloth, and UniLid®. Now, it's time to tackle the final part of any meal: clean-up!

We've all been there - the big dinner party is over, everyone is stuffed and happy, but the kitchen is an absolute disaster zone. Fear not, with our eco-friendly products, clean-up will be a breeze and you'll be doing your part to reduce waste and protect the planet.

First up, let's tackle the microwave. If you used it to warm up any leftovers or cook some quick side dishes, it's probably a mess. That's where the Duo Cover® comes in - its MoistureLock™ technology keeps food moist and prevents splatters, which means less cleaning for you. And when you do need to clean it, the Duo Cover® is dishwasher safe, so just toss it in and let the machine do the work. Plus, its microwave-safe magnets make it easy to store, so it's always within reach for your next meal.

Next, let's talk about all those leftovers. Instead of using disposable plastic wrap or baggies, opt for the reusable ZipBag®. These silicone storage bags are perfect for keeping food fresh in the fridge or freezer, and they're also great for taking snacks or sandwiches on the go. And if you're feeling fancy, you can even use them for sous vide cooking! Just wash them out with soap and water or toss them in the dishwasher, and they're ready to use again.

Now, it's time to clean up any spills or messes. Instead of using disposable paper towels, reach for the Swedish Dishcloth. These all-natural cloths are a great substitute and can be used over and over again - just rinse, dry, and repeat. Plus, they're compostable, so when they finally wear out, you can toss them in your compost bin instead of the trash.

Finally, it's time to put away any leftovers or clean dishes. Instead of struggling to find the right lid for your containers, use the UniLid®. This universal lid fits all shapes and sizes of bowls and containers, and its food tracking feature makes it easy to remember what's inside. And since it's reusable, it's a great eco-friendly replacement for plastic wrap.

With these eco-friendly products from Two Pillars, clean-up after cooking for a crowd has never been easier - or more environmentally friendly. So go ahead, throw that big dinner party, and enjoy the delicious food knowing that you're doing your part to protect the planet.
