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!
