I have been using Mystic Maid‘s blotter sheets for about 1 year and they are by far the easiest and most efficient way to pick up oil and grease from your food, especially soups, stews and sauces. I currently live in Hong Kong. I don’t know if you know much about the Hong Kong/Chinese culture, but we eat a lot of soup. I have tried placing the soup in the fridge to solidify the grease and eventually remove it — too time consuming. I have tried to skim it with a ladle, but it gets messy and you have to clean an additional utensil as well as the container for the grease you have removed. It is much easier to use these sheets to pick up the grease and control your diet.
Generally, if I’m blotting food like pizza my paper towel or tissue begins to break down and I get paper pieces in my food. The Grease Blotter doesn’t break up and it only picks up the oil and grease. When I ordered the product directly from the manufacturer, I asked how it was developed. The high-tech non-woven material was originally developed for the Japanese oil spill containment industry and is now produced in food-grade materials for consumers.
