Handy Hints for Wednesday ~ 32

We have all done it – struggled to find the opening end on the roll of sticky tape.  Problem solved.  Use a small coin or a paper clip placed on the roll side just before you cut the tape, when the cut end falls back to the roll the end is always visible.

Do you want to remove pilling knots on sweaters?  Just rub a piece of sandpaper over the sweater.

When roasting poultry truss it with dental floss, it will hold the legs in position and not burn.

To keep potatoes from sprouting store them in the dark or with apples in the same container.

Tired of coating food with plain old bread crumbs? Why not substitute the bread with crushed crisps/potato chips, cereal flakes or pretzels. I also use the dust from my muesli.
