20 Household Tips...or Myths?


Beryl Birch, editor of Power Yoga, recently published 20 interesting daily household tips. The reason I included “myths” in the title is that some of these tips seem too good to be true:

  • To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag with the potatoes.
  • To easily remove burnt-on food from your skillet, simply add a drop or two of dish soap and enough water to cover bottom of pan, and bring to a boil on stovetop-skillet will be much easier to clean.
  • If you accidentally over-salt a dish while it’s still cooking, drop in a peeled potato-it absorbs the excess salt for an instant “fix me up.”
  • To determine whether an egg is fresh, immerse it in a pan of cool, salted water. If it sinks, it is fresh-if it rises to the surface, throw it away.

What are your thoughts on the tips given by Beryl? Let us know if you’ve tried any of the tips and if they actually work.
