A salad spinner is useful, but it takes up a lot of space. Using an old pillowcase instead is a good way to recycle, plus it works well and stores easily. Place washed lettuce in the pillowcase, go outside, and swing the pillowcase in a circle while holding the top closed.

Unused lettuce can be stored in the damp pillowcase for a day or two, depending on the type of lettuce. This technique works particularly well for romaine lettuce, which often doesn’t fit inside countertop salad spinners.
