You just need to lie a simple wooden spoon over the top of the pot, and then it won’t boil over.

Dental floss is not just for use in the bathroom. These days, it can also be used to cut things up in the kitchen.

Eating strawberries can sometimes seem like a bit of a pain because of all the effort you have to go to in order to remove the hull. That’s the white bit in the middle that leads up to the stalk on top. But you can fix this problem with the humble straw. You just force it through the bottom of the strawberry all the way up to the top. This completely removes the bit you don’t want.
- Boil Water Before Freezing for Clear Ice
If you want to make ice for your drinks, you should consider boiling the water before you fill up your freezer’s ice tray. This might seem like a strange thing to do, but it actually makes the ice cubes perfectly clear. You will be able to see right through them, rather than them being cloudy as they usually would be.
- Use Old Jars for Stylish Storage
Simple glass jars can be used for so many things. As stylish kitchen storage, they’re fantastic. So, next time you finish a jar of jam, keep the jar and make it into a storage item for your kitchen. When you do this, you’ll find that the different colours of the things you’re storing turn the jars into stylish items for the kitchen.
