Practical Advice, Part 3: Home

  • Run hot water in the kitchen sink before turning on the dish washer.
  •  “Burp” Tupperware for a better seal.
  • Clothes pins make great “chip clips” along with sealing cereal, flour, and more.
  • Preheat a mug with hot water to keep coffee warm longer.
  • advice3Baking soda and vinegar followed by boiling water will dissolve most plumbing clogs.
  • Fitted sheets can be folded by tucking the elastic corners under one another.
  • Put pillows in a freezer for twenty-four hours to kill microscopic mites and other critters. (And, yes, your pillow has them).
  • Rubbing your hands on stainless steel (a sink works) removes an onion’s odor.

  • Kitty litter soaks up oil spills in garages.
  • Replace fire detector batteries when Daylight Saving Time begins and ends.
  • Plug the two ends of an electrical cord together before looping the doubled line.

  • Replace a toothbrush after recovering from a cold or the flu.
  • Dry a razor thoroughly between uses—it will stay sharp longer.
  • Make baked goods for the pastor.
