Quickly Ripen Avocados:
Put bananas or apples in a paper bag with avocados. Avocados mature faster due to ethylene gas.
Easy Peel Hard-Boiled Eggs:
Boil eggs in water with a teaspoon of baking soda. Place boiled eggs in an ice bath. Baking soda eases eggshell removal.
Revive Stale Bread:
Spray stale bread with water and bake for a few minutes. Bread may be freshened by moisture and heat.
Test Egg Freshness:
Put an egg in water. What lowers and flattens is new. Standing erect indicates an older but good item. Floats are expired and should be thrown.
Prevent Pot Overflow:
To avoid spillage, place a wooden spoon over a boiling kettle. When bubbles reach the surface, the wooden spoon pops them.
Juicy Citrus Fruits:
Roll lemons and limes on the countertop before juicing. This breaks down fruit membranes, making juicing simpler.
Easy Peel Garlic:
Shake vigorously with garlic cloves in a bowl covered by another basin. The skins will relax, making garlic peeling simpler.
