What could be easier to put on the table for breakfast than a boiled egg? Yes, they are simple to prepare, but the real challenge comes only after you take them off the heat. This is why it is recommended to add baking soda when boiling eggs.

The uses of baking soda seem endless. When it comes to cooking, it is one of the aces up the sleeve of professional chefs and the most skilled housewives.

We know all too well how easy it is to make a boiled egg. You just have to choose how strong you want the yolk to be and let it boil for a few minutes. The real challenge comes only when we have to remove the skin. A problem that could become history, with the help of a simple trick.

Who would have thought that you should add baking soda when you boil eggs so that you can peel them without any hassle? All you have to do is put a teaspoon of the white powder in the pot you are boiling the eggs in when the water starts to boil.

Another factor that influences the way the shell will separate from the white is the freshness of the egg. If it is older than seven days, it will boil and peel harder.

You can find out if you got fresh eggs in just a few seconds. All you have to do is put them in a bowl of water. If they sink, it means they are fresh, if they stay on the surface, they are close to their expiration date. To avoid cracking, it is good to heat the eggs before boiling.

Another simple trick that has amazing effects and will certainly make our lives easier: put the onion in the freezer for ten minutes before peeling and chopping it.

If the wine you have at home starts to change its taste and become more sour, you don’t have to throw it away. Try putting some raisins in the bottle and the problem will be solved immediately.

If you no longer want the salt to harden in the container in which it is stored, put a few grains of rice in the salt shaker.
