Make wilted chips crispy again.
If your chips have come into contact with air or water and become wilted, you don’t have to throw them away. Place a napkin or paper towel on a plate and place your chips on top of it. Then place them in a microwave oven for 30 seconds, and they will be crispy again.
Peel eggs faster
There are several ways to peel hard-boiled eggs. One is to break the shell of each egg and put it in cold water before shelling.
Extract just a few drops of lemon juice
Pierce the lemon with a toothpick if you only want a few drops of its juice, then plug the hole and place the lemon in the refrigerator. So you won’t have to throw the fruit away after using just a few drops.
Store bottles correctly
Use binder clips to fix your bottles horizontally in a refrigerator so they don’t slip.
Make perfect eggs
You will need a bottle cap ring or an onion ring. Put it in a pan and break an egg inside it, and the egg will be round without spreading in the pan.
Make better use of plastic film
We often get in the way when trying to use plastic film. It usually sticks to everything. To avoid this type of situation, keep it in the refrigerator, and it will be much easier to handle.
Make the fish on the grill without crumbling.
Just place the fish on a makeshift “mat” made of lemons. The fish will not stick to your grill and will have a pleasant lemon flavor.
Keep eggs fresh
You can store the eggs for a long period of time if you bathe them in vegetable oil before putting them in the refrigerator.
Keep the tomatoes on top of the sandwich.
You need to cut the ham into thin slices, so it will be easier to wrap the tomatoes in it. In this way, the tomatoes will not slip on the sandwich.
Store spices in an easier way
Use tic tac packs to store spices. They are convenient, small, and easy to open and close.
Freeze a piece of bacon more easily.
If you have a lot of bacon and don’t want it to spoil, freeze it. Fold an accordion-shaped strip of parchment paper to freeze individual bacon slices easily and then place them in the freezer.
Keep your vegetables fresh
Wash and dry the vegetables. Put them in the bottom of a plastic bag, fill it with air and tie it. This method will help you to keep your vegetables really green.
Sharpen a knife more easily
If you don’t have a special knife sharpener, you can use an ordinary ceramic cup. Put it upside down and slide your knife forward several times. Of course, if your knife is expensive and of high quality, it is best not to put it at risk and buy a knife sharpener.
Prevent your cutting board from slipping
Place a wet napkin under the board, and it will not slide.
Heat your food evenly in a microwave.
The food evenly spread it in a circle around the dish’s outer eish and leave the center empty to heat.
