*If you accidentally burn a pot of rice – place a piece of white bread on top of the rice for 5-10 minutes to draw out the burned flavor. Be careful not to scrape the burned pieces off of the bottom of the pan when serving the rice.
* I have replaced some of my household cleaning products which contain lots of chemicals with a solution of one part vinegar and 5 parts water – put in a spray bottle and use in the kitchen to clean greasy stovetops after cooking as well as a glass cleaner for windows.
*When you clean your fish tank, the water you drain can also be used to water your house plants. The nitrogen and phosphorus in fish droppings make aquarium water a great fertilizer – (I do this at home too!)
