Produce drawer lined with wax paper


Keep your fridge looking fresh! Help keep refrigerator drawers and shelves clean by lining them with Reynolds® Cut-Rite® Wax Paper. Place a double layer of wax paper in the bottom of the drawers and on top of shelves to help keep moisture and condensation at bay. When it’s time to clean out the refrigerator, just throw away the old pieces and refresh with new ones.

To speed up food prep, chop, shred, bread, peel or grate similar ingredients for recipes at the same time. Before you begin, place a sheet of Reynolds® Cut-Rite® Wax Paper on your kitchen counter. Use the wax paper to catch every shred so you won't waste time on cleanup. When you're finished, collect edges together and throw away any mess.

If you’re prepping food for later, wrap the ingredients with Reynolds Wrap® Aluminum Foil and refrigerate. Foil helps keep food odors from transferring to other foods.


Skip the splatter. When reheating foods in the microwave, keep splattering to a minimum by covering your dishes up with Reynolds® Cut-Rite® Wax Paper. Using wax paper in the microwave is a safe way to keep your microwave oven clean and scrub-free.
