You will need to use two rubber bands, one will be placed around the jar and one around the lid. In this way you will have a greater grip and open the jar will be very easy.
3. How to know when an egg is expired – Most eggs have an expiration date written on the shell, but in case there isn’t any date there is a very simple method to understand if an egg is still good to eat. Just immerse the egg in a glass of water, if it goes deep, it means that it can be cooked, otherwise it would be better to throw it away.
4. How to disinfect the cutting board – The cutting board is one of the items we have at home that accumulates the largest number of bacteria. To disinfect it in the best way it will be enough to use baking soda, which must then be rubbed away with a lemon. Finally, all must be rinsed with warm water.
5. How to properly peel an egg – When cooking hard-boiled eggs, it is sometimes very difficult to remove the shell without breaking it. To make everything easier, add a teaspoon of baking soda to the water, and after bringing it to a boil soak the eggs and leave them in boiling water for 12 minutes.
6. How to preserve brown sugar – If it is not properly preserved, brown sugar tends to dry out and turn into a single block. To prevent this from happening, we need to add two marshmallows to the container in which we place it and then close as tightly as possible.
