TODAY’S TIPS

  1. If two drinking glasses become stuck together after stacking them, Just put ice in the inner glass and dunk the outer glass in warm water. The warm glass will expand and the cold glass will contract, making the glasses separate easily.
  2. To help old wooden drawers (without runners) open and close smoothly, rub a candle on the tracks.
  3. To clean cast iron cook wear, don’t use detergents. Just scrub them with salt and a clean, dry paper towel.
  4. For aluminum pans that are looking dull, just boil some apple peels in them. This will brighten up the aluminum and make your house smell yummy.
  5. To clean an electric kettle with calcium buildup on the heating element, boil a mixture of half white vinegar and half water, then empty.
  6. Toothpaste is always a great silver cleaner.

Today’s 5 kitchen tips

Holla! from my Mama’s Kitchen to your Kitchen…..

oh yes i  do have today’s 5 kitchen tips and helps…..

 

5 KITCHEN TIPS

  1. Place a wooden spoon over boiling water to keep it from boiling over. There is a lot of science behind this, but the easiest way to explain why this works is because the spoon pops a lot of the bubbles once they come into contact with it, and it also absorbs some of the moisture. Apparently, metal spoons don’t work because they heat up too fast. It’s worth a try!
  2. Water that has been boiled and allowed to cool will freeze faster than water from the tap.
  3. To clean crevices and corners in vases and pitchers, fill with water and drop in two Alka-Seltzer tablets. The bubbles will do the scrubbing.
  4. After boiling pasta or potatoes, cool the water and use it to water your house plants. The water contains nutrients that your plants will love.
  5. Baking soda is an extremely effective cleaner, Use it with vinegar to deodorize drains and clean stove tops and sinks.

Secondly, Place another  bowl (same-sized bowl) over top to create a Dome for the Garlic.

Now, hold on to the two sides of the bowl and shake it.  you could shake it vigorously for about 17- 20 seconds depending on how strong you are .. lol!! shake it until you have achieved the desired result.
