Number 7 is my favorite. I was afraid when I first started reading it that it was going to be the old boil-in-the-can thing that I think is surely toxic! This can be done with two glass bowls, so I'm perfectly happy!

Cool kitchen hacks !!

Oh I am going to have to try number 7! That sounds so easy!

Thank you for sharing these useful tips at The Really Crafty Link Party.
I need to try number 1, as I'm a disaster every time I have to peel an onion. Numbers 9 and 10 were totally new to me, I had no idea.

These are good tips, and I’m glad you’re sharing some you’ve actually tried.

I’m going to try the one about the baking soda for stains in my teacup. I do have one that has stains and I’ve been wondering about how to remove them.

Thanks for sharing!

So many great tips, some I learnt from my mum and nan, some are new to me. I'm curious why you have a photo of bananas though? I scrolled back up to check if I'd missed a tip about bananas but I can't see one :-D

I'll have to try making the microwave dulce de leche. It sounds so much easier (and faster) to do it that way!
