Keep your celery fresh longer.
Remove the plastic wrap when you get your celery home, and wrap it tightly with a large piece of aluminum foil. It will last two to three times longer than in the plastic bag. Psst! Here are some tips for keeping your lettuce fresh, too.
Polish your silverware.
Line a pan with foil, fill it with cold water, and mix in 2 teaspoons of salt. Soak silverware in solution for five minutes, remove, rinse, and wipe with soft cloth or paper towel. Get our step-by-step guide here.
Soften brown sugar.
A baker’s worst nightmare: You go to measure brown sugar for your favorite chocolate chip cookie only to find the sugar is dried up and hard. To restore your sugar, break off a chunk and wrap it tightly in aluminum foil. Pop in the oven at 300ºF for five minutes and you’ll have soft sugar again!
