Things Your Grandmother Should Have Taught You

Peeling garlic:

Get a clove of garlic, place it flat-side down (so the outer, curved side of the clove is facing upwards). Place the flat side of a large knife on top of the clove, then hit the knife with the heel of your hand. The skin should fall right off.

Pour Coke/juice/the mixer of your choice into an ice tray. In summer, it’ll keep your drinks cool without watering them down.

Removing security tags:

If a security tag was accidentally left on your purchase, you can run a lighter over the bit that sticks out; the plastic will melt and the tag will pop off. (But don’t use this to shoplift! Ethics aside, most changing rooms are equipped with smoke detectors.)
