Weekend Musings: Household Tips


Here are some household tips I received from a friend that I would like to share with chowtimes readers.

Household-Hint-1

You can flip a toaster on its side and grill cheese on your toast with it. Remember to place a plate in front of the toaster to catch the toast when they are ejected out when done.

Household-Hint-2

You can divide and store ground meat in a ziplock bag. Just break off the amount you need and keep the rest in the freezer for later use.

Household-Hint-3

You can place a wooden spoon over a pot of boiling liquid to prevent boiling over.

Household-Hint-4

Marshmallows can cure a sore throat. Perfect for kids who don’t like medicine. I’ll need to test this the next time I have sore throat.

Household-Hint-5

You can run a paper bag through a printer.

Household-Hint-6

Take apart the bananas when you get home from the store. If you leave them connected at the stem, they ripen faster.

Household-Hint-8

Store your opened chunks of cheese in aluminum foil. It will stays fresh much longer and not get moldy quickly.

Peppers with 3 bumps on the bottom are sweeter and better for eating. Pepper with 4 bumps on the bottom are stronger in flavour.

Household-Hint-9

Add a teaspoon of water when frying minced beef will help pull the grease away from the meat while cooking.

Household-Hint-10

Use a clean dustpan to fill a container that does not fit in the sink.

Household-Hint-11

Place a rubber band around an open paint can for wiping your brush on and keep paint off the side of the can.

More tips:

Use a staple remover to save your fingernails when trying to add things to your key ring.

Place a micro-fiber cloth on the windshield to prevent frost from forming on cold nights.

Use a comb to keep a nail steady for hammering.

Use a post-it-note to catch drilling debris.
