Eating meals at restaurants or ordering room service day after day becomes quite a bore. Sometimes you crave nothing more than a simple home-cooked meal. With these amazingly creative hotel tricks, you’ll be able to cook yourself a healthy meal using a tea-maker and iron, appliances that are readily available in most hotels.
The next time you are stuck in a hotel that doesn’t offer free breakfast, don’t worry. You can still fix yourself a good home-cooked hot breakfast in your hotel room.

Fortunately, there are ingenious designers out there who are working on ways to create water bottles that are truly biodegradable (i.e., don’t take a thousand years and emit toxins as they biodegrade) and even edible.
Rodrigo Garcia Gonzalez, Pierre Paslier, and Guillaume Couch won a Lexus Design Award for their invention, the “Ooho,” which mimics nature by capturing water in a droplet-shaped container that is earth-friendly and can be eaten in a pinch. Imagine how handy that would be on your next camping or car trip!
The designers are currently in the process of testing prototypes. Their version would actually have a double layer (i.e. two membranes) for durability and hygiene. In 2013, they did a video test of the Ooho for a Spanish TV station:
Not all the participants loved the way the “bottle” tasted since it’s not exactly formed from flavorful ingredients (we’ll get to that in a moment), but the positive implications of the invention are enormous, considering that plastic pollution is a hugely troublesome environmental issue.
You can watch Inhabitat’s video below to get a step-by-step visual guide to the process, or check out their site for even more details.
While edible water bottles may not be on the market any time soon, you can definitely play with making your own in your kitchen. Even if you can’t quite take them camping yet, these edible water bottles could still be quite useful in an eco-friendly water balloon fight.
Upcycling vegetable stems and growing veggies from your kitchen leftovers never was so much fun…that is, if you have a little patience and want to access your inner “green thumb” magician. Here is a great post on how you can use your veggie scraps to feasibly grow your own veggies. Some more easily than others. I’d love to try some of these, being that I haven’t time for much gardening, but sure do have patience. 🙂
And here’s one just focused on lettuce, which seems to be one of the easiest to do so with:
If you do your nails at home, here’s every tip you could possibly need to ensure a salon-quality manicure. This is for KP♥………… Galactic Human
Let them air dry for a couple minutes then dunk away.
Get the whole technique here.
Just stick a pin into a pencil eraser.
Soak your nails in a solution of hot water, hydrogen peroxide, and baking soda for about a minute. Or you could also put some whitening toothpaste on a toothbrush and scrub the stains off your nail.
Use an old paintbrush or an eyeliner brush (perhaps the felt tip of an old liquid liner that dried up?) that you don’t care for anymore.
This will help to distribute the glitter evenly and get the big chunks where you want them. If all else fails, use a toothpick to move the chunks of glitter around.
Watch this video for a demonstration.
But be VERY careful! Any ointment that gets on the nail will prevent the polish from sticking. Visit Mad Town Macs for more DIY tips.
Peel off towards the cuticle, not towards the nail. Get more info at De Lune.
You could also just wipe your nails using a paper towel dampened with vinegar. Vinegar will strip the nails of any oils or moisturizers left over from polish remover in order to prevent bubbles. It helps the polish adhere better, therefore prolonging your manicure.
The ingredient thymol works on bacterial and yeast infections of the nail plate.
WoW thats a BIG Deal, amazing way to peel an apple……………………………
Due to year ending am having Lots and lots of work.. and the result has been a delay in posting, will try to finish and keep up, meanwhile Here’s wishing my Reader a Happy Gudi Padva and happy UGADI every one. Let’s have a fab new year! Happy Gudi Padva CRUZE……………
You can buy special utensils to do just about anything these days, and separating eggs is no exception. If you don’t have (or want to buy) a fancy tool to do it, the classic method is simple—just crack the egg and transfer the yolk back and forth between the two halves.
But even though egg separators are pretty cheap and using the shell (or just your fingers) isn’t hard to do, neither is as fun as this trick by YouTuber jifenzhongDIY.
All you’ll need is a couple of bowls and an empty plastic bottle. The suction of the bottle picks the yolk right out of the slimy white without breaking it. Plus, you get the added bonus of not having to worry about getting your hands messy, so keep this in mind the next time you’re thinking of baking an angel food cake, because you can even do multiple yolks at the same time.
Wrinkles are a serious pain — especially when you’re in a hurry. Instead of plugging in the iron and rushing through a quick ironing only to see the wrinkles pop back,that we had to try. Here’s what you do:
Full disclosure: I have no qualms ironing. We’ve talked about ways to de-wrinkle your clothes without ironing before, and they work well, but ironing isn’t hard, and usually it’s just way more effective than trying to hack your way to wrinkle-free clothes. Still, when the folks at PopSugar sent this one over to us, I decided to give it a try, and it works well-as long as you don’t have a lot of clothes in with your ice cubes.
This trick works if you have a couple of shirts, or maybe a shirt and a pair of slacks or pants. Jeans, heavy fabrics, or too many clothes and you lose the benefit. As you run the dryer, the ice cubes melt (and seriously, we mean like two or three ice cubes, not a handful, no matter how big your dryer is. In fact, this works best with a big dryer, few clothes, and a few cubes.) to water, which eventually gets hot enough to become steam. That steam-along with the hot temperatures-smooth out the wrinkles. It’s like the shower trick and the dryer trick all rolled into one.
You probably already know that cooking involves a ton of chemistry. Bread rises because of the reaction between the flour and leavener, and the delicious crust on your steak is formed by the Maillard reaction. Understanding the chemistry going on behind the scenes is one of the best ways to improve the quality of your food—it’s much easier to fix a problem when you know what’s causing it.
But you don’t need a degree in food science to use it to your advantage. This video from the Reactions series by the American Chemical Society explains a few hacks for your coffee, produce, cookies and cast iron, along with the science behind them. Most of these tips are things we’ve covered before, but it never hurts to hear it again.
If your morning coffee tastes a little bitter, add a pinch of salt before or after brewing to make it more palatable.
When the salt dissolves, the sodium ions block bitter molecules from reaching your taste buds. A teeny tiny pinch is enough to balance out the bitterness and enhance the other flavors.
To speed up the ripening of bananas, avocados and other fruit, put them in a brown paper bag.
As fruit ripens, it produces ethylene, an invisible and odorless gas that breaks down cell walls and starches. The more ethylene in the air, the sweeter and softer it gets. Placing fruits in a bag with ripe tomatoes (or another fruit) increases the amount of ethylene and traps it in, helping the unripened fruit to ripen much faster.
To keep your fresh-baked cookies from going stale, store them with a slice of bread in a plastic bag or airtight container.
Cookies have much more sugar than bread, and sugar is hygroscopic, which means it soaks up moisture from the environment. The cookies will absorb the moisture from the bread, and you’ll end up with one hard, dry piece of bread and soft, delicious cookies.
If you get lazy with your cast iron and it ends up rusting, you can easily remove the rust with a splash of Coca Cola.
Coke contains phosphoric acid, which is used industrially as a rust remover. It converts iron oxide rust into ferric phosphate, which is much easier to clean out.
Don’t have any Coke? You can also get rid of that rust with steel wool, white vinegar, or kosher salt and a potato.

WoW I love this one …………………GH
The process here just requires a lemon, a microwave-safe bowl, and a dry towel:
With that, you should have a clean microwave with very little work.
