    Default *Spin off* Why is it so damn hard to....

    That's how DP gets eggs out. And with minimal practise he can peel 4 eggs in 4 breaths total and a few seconds.
    I want to go cook some eggs just to try this trick.

    If you put eggs straight out of the hot water into cold water the shells will peel off in one piece

    Jars and suction jar lids hold firmly onto the neck of the jar, turn upside down and firmly on the bottom several times. This works 90% of the time first go and doesn't require any fancy gadets.

    DH is my jar opener but when DH isn't home which is majority of the time when I want to open them I used to use the grip cloths but they all disappeared bought more which went missing again still haven't found them I suspect DH put them into some project or the other because it was there

    I thought of some more:.. paint your toes. They're just too far away it's always an awkward occasion, my feet propped up on the table, leaning forward..

    Whistle! How hard is it? Well for me I just can't... although I can do the fingers in my mouth "concert" whistle.. so go figure.

    Click my fingers. I'm like the little boy from Mary Poppins who just could not master it.

    Use chopsticks. I don't think this will ever happen for me, lol..

    Another one for makers of baby wipes . Can't they make the wipe packet less noisy? When I'm doing a calm bottom change at night on baby it's all good until the wipe packet starts making this awful crackle noise and wakes her up!

    I always find eggs easy to peel. Boil them... cool them off (so they don't burn you while you try to remove the shell), and then roll them on the bench. The shell will shatter, and slide off!

    You can also put a rubber band around the lid and it makes it easier to open.

    Help! Mine never come off that easily! What is the trick!? How long do you "cool" them for? Not sure what I do wrong...!

    The fresher the egg the harder it is to peel.
