9. If you aren’t sure how fresh your eggs are, place them in about four inches of water. Eggs that stay on the bottom are fresh. If only one end tips up, the egg is less fresh and should be used soon. If it floats, it’s past the fresh stage.

10. To clear all ants from your kitchen, find out the source of there holes and cover the hole with petroleum jelly(Vaseline). Ants won’t trek through the jelly. If they are coming under a door, draw a line on the floor with chalk. The little bugs also won’t cross a line of chalk.

15. When defrosting meat from the freezer, pour some vinegar over it. It doesn't only does tenderize the meat; it will also bring down the freezing temperature of the meat and cause it to thaw quicker. # Note every woman should have vinegar in her kitchen.

16. Never cry when you're peeling off onions, then try this. After peeling off your onions, refrigerate the onions for at least 5minutes, then dice.

19. Always keep an aloe vera plant in your kitchen. It’s invaluable when you scrape your arm or burn your finger. Just break off a leaf and rub the gel from the inside on the injury.

21. To re-use cooking oil without tasting whatever was cooked in the oil previously, cook a 1/4? A piece of ginger in the oil. This tip will remove any remaining flavors and odors.

22. If your milk always goes bad before you can finish it, try adding a pinch of salt to the carton when you first open it. It will stay fresh days longer.

23. If two drinking glasses become stuck together after stacking, it’s not impossible to unstick them. Just put ice in the inner glass and dunk the outer glass in warm water. The warm drink will expand, and the cold glass will contract, making the glasses separate easily.

24. For splinters under the fingernail, soaking the affected finger in a bowl of milk with a piece of bread in it, This will definitely help.

Nice tips

Also, a lump of charcoal when dropped in a pot of sour egusi soup and boiled will absorb the sourness from it.
