It always seems like every time I make spaghetti, I have some let over. That half package of spaghetti then floats around my pantry until someone (the child) knocks it over and we end up with crunchy noodle mess. Most containers I have tried to store my spaghetti are too short and just make it harder to keep out of the way, except one. Of all things, a Pringles can fits noodles perfectly.
Storing noodles in a Pringles can is incredible! They fit and the can is slender enough to not be a nuisance in your pantry.
You will need a original flavor Pringles can. You can probably use other flavors, but I figure that using the one with the least amount of flavor is probably the best way to keep your noodles from being flavored in any way. Next rinse out your Pringles can. Rinse it with warm water for NO MORE than a minute. If you keep it under a minute the container will have no problems holding together.
Let the container air dry over night. Take a piece of 12×12 scrapbook paper and Mod Podge, wrap it around the can, securing it as you go. Trim off the excess. Allow to dry completely.
After your container is dry, simply add your noodles for perfect storage. I have put spaghetti noodles and linguine in these and they have all fit wonderfully with no change to the noodles whatsoever.
