Things Your Grandmother Should Have Taught You

Make rice in your microwave:

It’s super-easy; just put however much rice you want into a (microwave-proof!) bowl, then put in twice as much water. Microwave for 10-20 (depends on your microwave) minutes, checking periodically. You’ll know it’s done when the grains are sticking upwards and the water’s evaporated. Make meals in a toastie machine: Including but not limited to; hash browns, steak, and crispy refried noodles.

Baking soda:

Fixes everything. You can put it on basically anything with a bit of water to remove stains, put it in flowers to preserve them for longer, sprinkle some in your shoes so that shit don’t stank, and it’ll help with rashes, insect bites, bee stings, heartburn.

Get warm in the mornings:

Shove a hair dryer down your shirt.

Tabasco sauce:

Put it on everything you eat (except cereal; not a good scene). Tabasco sauce + scrambled eggs (which you make using only eggs and butter!)
