Soda Does The Job

Removing labels from a glass bottle results in gunk that you need to deal with. But there is one household solution to remove labels without gunk: a water bath of soda crystals.
My grandmother used to swear by soda crystals to do most job, she would say it was great to get grease out of clothes, great to get your whites white, an ideal drain and sink un-blocker and an all round good household cleaning product.
You can buy soda crystals very cheaply from your local supermarket and it is normally found in the laundry isle.
Simply fill the kitchen sink with hot water, dropped about half a cup of soda crystals into the water and let dissolve then submerge the bottle to soak for half an hour, the label will then just slid off easily.


Oil Up

Whether you are adding honey to tea, or you need to measure any sticky substance, it will generally stick. This does not just happen with things like honey and syrup, but even with vegetable shortening or sour cream. If you want to get an accurate measurement and save yourself some cleaning, then this tip is just for you.

Oil Up

When baking, you use butter or oil to keep your cookies (or whatever you are making) from sticking to the pan. Similarly, if you want to prevent anything from sticking to a spoon or measuring cup, just add some oil. This is particularly convenient if your recipe calls for oil already because you can just measure out the oil first. If it does not, just pour a little drop in the measuring device and spread it around with a napkin or paper towel. This little amount of effort will make cleaning easier later.
