My New Favorite for Passover

My new favorite, of all things, is Glad Press N'Seal. So far it's been the only thing that can keep my odd shaped corner countertop covered. It's like super thick plastic wrap combined with a Post-It. It also did a fast job of lining my shelves.

    Interesting. I use Con-Tact Brand Creative Covering Self-Adhesive Shelf Liner on counters that cannot be kashered. If they can (stainless steel; granite) I use a wallpaper steamer.

      Does the liner come off easily?

        Yes. Leaving no sticky residue on counters. Even comes in attractive patterns/colors

          I lived in an apartment with such cheap and hideous counter tops that I only took off the contact paper to put on new contact paper for the following pesach. Once you get the hang of it, it can be a nice way to change things up.

            How is the learning curve with applying that? Can anyone do it? I like the GP&S because it seems idiotproof (which I need). Does it take a long time with the contact paper? Where would I purchase something like that?

              There's a slight learning curve but I imagine that there are great tutorials online. Also, if you make a mistake, it's pretty easy to pull up and redo with the same sheet. Once you get the technique down you can cover a lot very quickly. I initially got the contact paper from a 99cent store but found a much better selection on Amazon. The great thing about it is that it is durable.

              Check the labels. Regular contact paper is very adhesive, messy to remove (leaves a sticky residue). Con-Tact Brand Creative Covering Self-Adhesive Shelf Liner is intended for lining shelves, and can be taken off without damaging the shelf or leaving a residue. Cover a counter, and on the ninth day - you just pull it off. Which makes it great for counters. I also reline shelves, drawers with it every year, and it lasts all year.

          I also use that. Couldn't find any patterns I liked this year, but the white is just fine. It also makes fantastic text book covers for the kids...
