If there’s a grease fire in a pan, cover the pan immediately with a lid. You’ll cut off the oxygen supply and the fire will go out. Baking soda is one of the best fire extinguishers. Always keep an open box next to the stove to dump onto grease fires – and never use water!

Here’s a great tip for the really thrifty. If you want to get all the shortening or lard out of a can, pour 2 cups boiling water into the container and swirl it gently until the fat melts. Refrigerate the container until the shortening solidifies on the water’s surface, then just lift or skim it off with a knife blade or sharp – edged spoon.

Lemons will stay fresh for up to three months if you store them in a bowl of water in the fridge. Just change the water every week. Who knew, not me!

Rock- hard marshmallows don’t have to be thrown out. You can soften them up in a resealable plastic bag placed on top of warm water. Now go get that grill fired up again.

To keep your cooler fresh and odor free, throw in 10-15 charcoal briquettes, close the top, and leave it overnight. In the morning, clean the cooler with soapy water, and it will smell like new.
