 To those of us that love to eat we know how important a kitchen is, we know that keeping it clean always is necessary.
Here are some tips to make things smooth for us when we decide to do some *Magic* for ourselves and families.
  • When in doubt of an egg, make a test: add 2 teaspoons of salt to a cup of water and put the egg in it. A fresh egg will sink, a doubtful egg will float.
  • Lemons will stay fresh longer if you store them in a bowl of cold water in the fridge; they will keep up to 3 months this way.
  • Keep boiled  eggs in cold water for 5 minutes; this will make removal of the shell easier.
  • While cooking smelly foods soak a cloth towel and let it dry in the cooking area. It will absorb the smell of cooking and keep the room fresh.
  • Cut the top of carrot (head) and store in air tight bag. This will keep it fresh for a longer period.
  • Reduce the burning sensation after cutting chilli peppers by keeping the fingers in a bowl of cold milk added with some sugar.
  • To thin a small portion of peanut butter, use orange juice. It makes it spread much easier and adds taste appeal.
  • Sprinkle pantry (storeroom) shelves,window sills and door sills with a mixture of red pepper to rid them of ants.
  • To clean wooden chopping board, counter or rolling pins sprinkle table salt on these surfaces when they are wet and scrub dry.
