Got red wine bottles lying around the house? Put them to good use! These dark-colored bottles are the perfect container for used oil because, like red wine, cooking oils are averse to light.

 

To store, let the oil cool down after frying. Pour into sterilized wine bottles, using a coffee filter or a cheesecloth-lined funnel to strain out tiny food particles. Cover tightly with a cork or bottle cap and keep away from light.
