[I’m not sure how many of these are actually true.  That thing about using dryer sheets as mosquito repellant is wrong.]

Some examples:

2. Store your opened chunks- of cheese in aluminum foil. It will stay fresh much longer and not mold!

3. Peppers with 3 bumps on the bottom- are sweeter and better for eating. Peppers with 4 bumps on the bottom are firmer and better for cooking.

10. Easy Deviled Eggs- Put cooked egg yolks in a zip lock bag. Seal, mash till they are all broken up. Add remainder of ingredients, reseal, keep mashing it up mixing thoroughly, cut the tip of the baggy, squeeze mixture into egg. Just throw bag away when done easy clean up.

19. Measuring Cups- Before you pour sticky substances into a measuring cup, fill with hot water. Dump out the hot water, but don’t dry cup. Next, add your ingredient, such as peanut butter, and watch how easily it comes right out.
