If I jam *2* dish rags in a wide mouth quart, then I can use my hand.
Regular mouth quart or pint, nope.

I have a big sponge that works very well on RM pints, not so much on RM and WM quarts but better than a rag. Might need to try a big and little sponge in those quarts.

Azure Standard will have flats of Ball canning lids in stock soon, if you get the flat, it comes out to 2.50 or so a box of 12 lids.   .21 per lid.   I do find that to be expensive.  But, it is less than elsewhere

That is $5 for 12 lids, that is gouging us because of demand this year.  Crazy high prices

those Tattlers are looking a better deal now than when I bought them.  When I bought them, they were 7x the cost of the flat metal ones.

at $2.69/dz at my store, and $8.33/dz from tattler, it is only 4x the price.

Amish lids I get figure around .16 each in 120 packs, which I'm pretty positive they are the unmarked lids from Ball.
Same lids that the Amish use on their jams and pickling jars.

I also watch the deals on Ebay. I've picked up deals there. The candle makers throw their lids and rings on there after buying new jars. Most are ball.

They will list box of 100 lids and rings, bulk, free shipping sometimes for 25-30 dollars. Course if yer like me, you don't need rings.
