Neat Tips

Need to jot down something in the kitchen. Keep a picture frame with a glass face hanging in your
kitchen. Use a dry erase marker to jot down notes or shopping lists!

Perk up soggy lettuce by soaking in cold water with some lemon juice. To store place in a zip lock bag with paper towel to absorb moisture.

Wax paper is endlessly useful. Use it: To catch grated cheese, to place under seasoned flour for breading or spices for blackening, to tear into strips to slip under a cake you are icing, to cover a dish you are microwaving.

To remove pesky bottle tops and jar lids, don a pair of rubber gloves. Or twist a fat rubber band around the lid, then twist open. Works like a charm.

Place a piece of white chalk in your silver chest or jewel box to absorb moisture and help prevent tarnishing of silverware and jewelry.

Have you ever peeled garlic or handled it and your hands smell to high heaven? The next time that happens, take any stainless steel bowl, pan or other stainless steel kitchen gadget and rub your hands on it. It will take away the smell of garlic.

A quick fix for dry hands. The next time you do dishes, rub lotion onto your hands, use a bit more than usual. Put on a pair of dish-washing gloves. Run the dishwater as hot as you can, treat your dry hands while you do the dishes. They will feel amazing when your done!
