Ripen kiwifruit quickly

May 16, 2012 Filed under Tip of the Day

If you have some hard unripe kiwifruit, put them in a bag with an apple and store it in a dark place for a day or two.  The apple helps the kiwifruit to ripen more quickly.

Fireproof storage for personal documents

March 11, 2011 Filed under Tip of the Day

Store valuable papers in a sealed plastic bag in the freezer.  This is the one place in the house that is fireproof. Plus you will always know where to find  the papers and you will save money by not buying a fireproof safe.

Store food in jars

January 21, 2011 Filed under Tip of the Day

Keep food in your pantry in airtight jars  or plastic containers instead of open packets and the food will stay fresh longer.

You can recycle empty jars and plastic containers that have had other food in them.

Wash the containers and lids and dry thoroughly before re-use.
