9 Kitchen Life Hacks Our Grandmas Have Been Using for Years. And They Still Work!

Grandmothers are the champions of the kitchen craft. Their tricks and recipes have always been a key to survive in the kitchen.

#1 Instant knife sharpening

Everyone knows that a blunt knife is a bad knife. Don’t worry if you don’t have a sharpener at hand – just use a ceramic mug or plate. Flip the mug (or plate) over and pull the knife blade along unglazed rim on the bottom, maintaining an angle of 30 degrees. Repeat that a few times and that’s it!

#2 Bread crumbs? Do it yourself!

I guess everyone knows that. Just a few pieces of dry bread (it can’t be moldy, though!), a grater and you’ve got it. You can also freeze a piece of bread roll and grate it on the shred side.

#3 Removing labels from jars

Grandmas don’t waste things! They were first to recycle jars by filling them with their delicious jams.
To remove a label, grease it with oil, margarine, butter or body cream and leave it for the night. Next day it will come off easily!

#4 Salt against burns

Something burnt on the cooker? The bottom of the pot doesn’t look good? Cheer up! Pour some salt over the burnt spots and add a bit of water so that some kind of paste forms. Leave it for some time(or even for the night) and remove the staining easily.

#5 Cleaning up a smashed egg

When an egg smashes on the floor, it’s not easy to get rid of it. Unless you have a pet that will ‘clean’ it in a blink of an eye.
If you don’t, once again fall back on salt. Pour some over the egg and collect it all with a piece of paper kitchen towel.
