Maybe you've tried using a paper towel and found that a messy and ineffective way to skim grease from stews, gravies, and soups. Behold the fat mop! Stir soups, chili, and stews as they are cooking to pull the grease right out. As they're cooling skim sauces and gravies. Instead of draining, brush bacon, broiled meats and fried foods to remove unwanted fats. You'll be eliminating many of the calories and much of the cholesterol that comes along with fat, grease, and oil.
