1. Cake Storage
When there's left over cake, keep it from getting hard and stale by securing the "cut" area with sliced bread and toothpicks.
2. Longer Lasting Eggs
To keep eggs fresh longer, simply rub their shells with vegetable oil. They'll last an additional 3 to 4 weeks!
3. Easy Ginger Root Peel
Smooth off lumps on ginger root by peeling them off with a spoon. This method also allows for "zero waste", and that's a good thing.
4. Lemon Juice
When preparing a recipe that calls for lemon juice, simply puncture the rind with a toothpick and gently squeeze out what you need. Afterwards cover the holes with tape and store in the fridge for later use.
5. Reuse Cheese Wrappers
After cutting a chunk of cheese straight through its plastic wrapper, remove cheese and use. Afterwards with the remaining cheese left, slide it back into the empty plastic wrapper and store.
