Used cooking oil can be a conundrum for home cooks: You can't pour it down the drain without it clogging, and tossing it in the trash can mean almost endless wads of soaked paper towels. Here's one way to get rid of cooking oil: Use it to kill pesky weeds. Pouring cooled oil where weeds proliferate will not only kill them, but the oil prevents them from coming back. And because it’s a vegetable-based oil, it’s biodegradable and perfectly fine to pour into the soil.
