No matter how much of a pro you are in the kitchen, there's always something new to learn about navigating your way in a cooking corner. After all, it never hurts to have a few more tricks up your sleeve that make life easier. Here are a few new ideas you can try:

 

1 Keep fruits fresher for a longer time by wrapping them tight in plastic wrap.

Doing so prevents it from releasing ethylene gases, causing it to ripen too fast.

 

 

2 Make an improvised lid for your mixer!

If you love baking but you hate cleaning up batter spills, try making an improvised lid for your mixer by poking two holes into a disposable plate. You'll never make a mess on your kitchen counter again.
