Ribbon Holder=coil the ribbons around a chopstick, secure with a piece of tape and store it. The ribbon will stay neat and untangled until ready for regifting (tip:the curly variety will unravel already twirled).
Trivet=place a hot crock on two flat wooden chopsticks spaced a few inches apart.
Toaster Tongs=no metal utensils in the toaster, free your stuck toast or english muffin with wooden chopsticks.
Refrigerator Cleaner=dislodge bits of food (mold and mildew) from the door seal with chopsticks before spritzing with a cleaning solution.
Glue Stick=to get tiny sequin in just the right spot during your next project, use the tip of a chopstick to nudge it into place without gumming up fingers (Real Simple, February 2012).
