    Prevent mold on cheese... take a paper towel and fold it down to about a 2 x 2 inch square. I then dampened the paper towel with vinegar. Barely damp, just enough that you can tell it is damp. Wrap cheese in the paper towel and place inside a Ziploc bag and return to the refrigerator.

    How to Pack a Week of Salads that Stay Fresh till Friday

    wish I knew this years ago- Right after using the grill, unplug it and place a wet double-sheet of paper towel between the lid and the surface. The leftover heat causes the towel to steam and clean the grill. Wiping it dry with another paper towel is all that?s needed. I'm going to try with waffle iron.

    Paper Towel Trick!

    I had no idea!!! this shows all kinds of common mistakes while cooking.

    When buying fruit and veggies, always soak them in a 1:4 ratio of vinegar and water to help remove toxins and pesticides. Leave them soaking for up to an hour, longer with nonorganic apples. At the end of the bath, sometimes you can even see cloudy like stuff in the water from the skins and waxes, and dirt on the bottom. Works awesome! Once I did this to blackberries and they were good for 3 WEEKS! That's unheard of with berries & water. The vinegar is KEY :)
