No More Messes! Savvy Solutions for Messy Party Snacks

Parties are great, but cleaning up after them isn't so fun. Save time on clean up -- or eliminate messes altogether! -- with these great tips from My Best Idea and The Kissters.

iVillage user Cary Pierson of Lutherville, MD shares a super simple tip for beverages. Tired of your ice bucket filling up with water making the cubes hard to scoop? Try putting the ice in a colandar over a bowl to avoid the watery mess. 

The Kissters like to put those paper muffin and cupcake lineirs to good use beyond baking. They recommend poking a straw through a paper liner to cover your drinks from pesky bugs while dining outdoors. Plus, a muffin liner is a great way to keep kids hands clean while eating popsicles.
