In our society, it has been instituted in such a way that a woman is more often preparing food.

Men can only fry eggs or potatoes in a frying pan. That is why sometimes in print publications or on sites appear useful tips for the stronger sex.

One men's magazine published culinary lifehacks on its pages for its target audience, but it is worth noting that they will also be useful to the hostesses.

1. Egg storage

Extend shelf life of eggs.

Eggs are a potentially dangerous product. Their shelf life is limited and it is absolutely not worth breaking it. It is worth noting that in the summer months the shelf life of this product becomes even more limited. So, if you are going to take raw chicken eggs on the road, grease them with vegetable oil. The fatty film will prevent the ingress of bacteria under the shell.

2. Started Cake

So that the cake does not become stale.

To prevent the started cake from becoming hardened, attach a slice of bread to the cut points. To do this, ordinary toothpicks will help.

3. Lemon juice

A few drops of lemon juice.

If you need a few drops of lemon juice and you don’t want the fruit to dry in your fridge, use a toothpick.

After that, seal the small hole with tape and put it in the fridge until the next time.
