Introduction: How to Clean a Peanut Butter Jar

If you ever need to clean a peanut butter jar here is a quick way.

Step 1: Egg Shells

Toss some egg shells into the jar. Two or three should do fine.

Step 2: Water

Add a little warm water from the tap. Fill the jar about 1/3 full and put the top back on.

Step 3: Shake

Shake the jar for about a minuet or so. The egg shells will break up and scrub the sides of the jar. Try to get the water to slosh back and forth, not swirl.

Step 4: Rinse and Repeat

Pour the water and shells out into a strainer of some sort. Notice how the shells broke into smaller pieces. At this point you might want to repeat step 3.

Step 5: Finished:

Now you have a nice clean jar. There might still be some residue left but it will wipe out pretty easy. At lest a lot better then before you started.
