Handy tips for 2016

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - HOMES -

Soak sil­ver jew­elry in cooled wa­ter in which pota­toes were boiled. Let stand for one hour. Rinse and pol­ish. Great trick for clean­ing that tight space be­tween the stove and counter: use one of those lit­tle plas­tic bread bag clo­sures. The tag is strong enough to pull out grime and won’t scratch sur­faces the way a knife will. So cheese doesn’t stick to foil when mak­ing lasagna, cover the dish with parch­ment pa­per first, fol­lowed by a layer of alu­minum foil. This also pre­vents cheese from stick­ing while in trans­port, such as for a potluck din­ner. Note: Ev­ery user as­sumes all risks of in­jury or dam­age re­sult­ing from the im­ple­men­ta­tion of any sug­ges­tions in this col­umn. Test all prod­ucts on an in­con­spic­u­ous area first. I en­joy your ques­tions and tips, keep them com­ing. Need a pre­sen­ter on the topic: ef­fec­tive speak­ing or the power

of words?
