Remove Silk From Sweet Corn

With sweet corn season in full bloom, save time shucking with this simple to-do tip that uses something from your desk.

To easily remove the excess silk strands from fresh corn, wrap a large rubber band around your fingers. Then I rub it against the corn kernels. The silk gets trapped in the rubber band, leaving behind a clean ear of corn.
