Handy way to reuse corks

I was finding it very hard to get the patio table clean under the glass and around the rim, and it was bothering me. Since there is an umbrella in the middle it’s not convenient to take the glass off, so I came up with a great trick last week to make it easier.

It’s best if you can use 2 people to lift one side at a time, but it can be done with just one person also. Simply raise the edge of the glass top and place wine corks in between to keep it raised.
Now you have easy access to hose, wipe, brush, blow….whatever your preferred method of cleaning!
If you hose it off like I do the corks are great to leave in place while everything dries. Simple.
Happy patio dining! 🙂
