Keep Your Stand Mixer From Making A Mess With A Kitchen Towel

Stand mixers are terrific appliances to have in your kitchen. Depending on what you’re mixing, though, they have the potential to make a serious mess. A simple trick with a kitchen towel can save you a lot of cleaning.

A lot of stand mixers come with a splatter guard, but even if you start on a low setting they don’t always do such a great job. If you’ve lost yours, or want some extra mess protection, Emma Christensen at The Kitchn suggests you drape a clean kitchen towel over your kitchen bowl after you add all of your ingredients. Now any flour or what have you will get trapped by the towel instead of spread all over your counter. When you’re done, just toss the towel in the wash so you can use it again.
