I baked all kinds of Christmas cookies... and I'm still finding cocoa powder dust all over in the kitchen. All those appliances you don't use all the time are being dusted and then I am making covers for them. It's a lot easier to throw the covers in the washer than it is to dust every nook and cranny of the small appliances. Have you ever counted how many push buttons are on a blender? The worst part is that you never manage to get it perfectly clean like new, and you end up with a icky build up mess between the buttons. Putting a cover over it prevents that build up and keeps it looking like new.
