- Find heavy clear plastic, like what they sell in rolls to cover tables, or to make shower curtain liners.
- Cut enough to cover your favorite cookbook while it is open. Leave a little extra at the open end.
- Tape the edges, or sew using an extra wide stitch. Don't forget to leave one side open! You can use a clip to hold the plastic in place while you tape or sew. You can even use decorative tape.
- Optional - To hold the open end closed you can use stick-on Velcro, a large paper clip, or a chip-clip.
Now splatter away! Pile ingredients on your cookbook! Bring it right into the action! Just wipe off after each use and store folded in half on your cookbook shelf.
