In a pinch

Stabroek News Sunday - - WEEKEND MAGAZINE -

We all have those days when we wish there was an eas­ier way or a short­cut to some of the tasks we have to com­plete. If that is you to­day you are in luck.

These tips will save your time and san­ity.

* When cook­ing or bak­ing, spray your mea­sur­ing cup or spoon with cook­ing spray be­fore us­ing it for some­thing like honey so that it slides right out with no mess.

* Use tooth­paste mixed with a lit­tle bak­ing soda to clean your pots and pans.

* Use hy­dro­gen per­ox­ide to re­move blood stains from fab­rics.

* Fold your sheet set and store in one of the pil­low cases. It makes it neat for stor­age, takes up less space and when you are ready to use it the set is all in one place.

* Win the sock war by putting mark­ings be­low the heels with per­ma­nent marker. You will al­ways be able to pair them suc­cess­fully.

* Re­move all pack­ag­ing that takes up space be­fore stor­ing, un­less you ab­so­lutely need the box for in­struc­tions. The con­tents are usu­ally much smaller and take up less space. (Free House­hold Tips)
