7 Helpful Household Tips - Onions, Celery, Lemons and Potatoes

The following are cleaver tips for the home using everyday produce and products:

  1. To Remove Onion Smell From Your Hands: rub your hands with celery. Ta da!

  2. To Remove Seafood Smell From Your Hands: rub your hands with lemon. Voila!

  3. To Restore a worn Emery board, try putting it in a warm oven for a few minutes. This process will dry it right out and crisp it up! Wahoo!

  4. To stop hiccoughs, take a lump of sugar saturated in vinegar or swallow 2 teaspoons of sugar. Hic!

  5. To prevent grease from sputtering when frying bacon, or other meats and fish, place a piece of bread in the frying pan. The bread will prevent the grease from splattering you and will make stove top clean up easier and faster. Yeah!

  6. For drawers that squeak or rub because the fit is not quite right or tight, rub a bar of soap on the rungs and along the upper edges of the drawer. The drawers will now run smoothly and the soap will help prevent moths.

  7. All vegetables grown above ground should be boiled with the lid off the saucepan and all vegetables grown below ground, with the lid on.

Try these tips and enjoy!
