You Will Love These Tricks…

June 12, 2013

I received these in an email and I had to share!

What are your tricks like this?

You can flip a toaster on its side and grill cheese in it.

You can divide and store ground meat in a Ziploc bag. 

Just break off how much you need and keep the rest in the freezer for later!


If you place a wooden spoon over a pot of boiling water, it won’t boil over!



Marshmallows can cure a sore throat. Perfect for kids who don’t like medicine.

You can run a paper bag through your printer.

Cereal canisters make the perfect trash bin for your car.
Take your bananas apart when you get home from the shop.
If you leave them connected at the stem, they ripen faster…
Store your opened chunks of cheese in aluminum foil. It will stay fresh much
longer and not mold.
(But you can scrape off any mold and still eat the cheese without changes in flavor)
Peppers with 3 bumps on the bottom are sweeter and better for eating.
Peppers with 4 bumps on the bottom are stronger flavored.
Who knew??
Add a teaspoon of water when frying minced beef.
It will help pull the grease away from the meat while cooking.
Use a (clean) dustpan to fill a container that doesnโ€™t fit in the sink
Place a rubber band around an open paint can to wipe your brush on, and
keep paint off the side of the can
Use a staple remover to save your fingernails when trying to add things to your
key ring.
How to keep the straw from rising out of your fizzy drink can
Use a micro-fiber cloth to prevent frost from forming on the windshield.
Use a comb to keep a nail steady for hammering.
Use a post-it note to catch drilling debris.
Which was your favorite?
Do you have any to add?

    I’ve been meaning to respond to this post since I saw it. Brilliant!!!!! For me the question is, what didn’t I love? I’ve been informally polling and apparently the spoon does work. I’m making ravioli tonight and if it doesn’t work you’ll be the first to know. ๐Ÿ˜‰ my favorite is the car trash container(cue angels singing). That madero drool. I’m a bit type A. The comb to hold a nail is brilliant. My husband’s favorite was the post it note cleaning up after drilling. Also, marshmallow to sooth a sore throat I’d love to try too. :) My husband is not one that is easily impressed and he was too. He forwarded it to lots of people. ๐Ÿ˜‰
