My Top 3 Favorite Tips found on Pinterest

Over the last 2 years, Pinterest has squeezed it’s self into my everyday life. It’s an amazing resource of visual overload and inspiration, but also full of fascinating tips and tricks I can’t believe I ever lived without!

These are my top 3 life changing tips!

Placing a wooden spoon over pan when cooking pasta:

Somehow this prevents the boiling water not to spill over, incredible right? The bubbles fold over the top and not down the pan. Obviously, still be cautious and keep a close eye on the heat and pan!


Ironing ribbon with a hair straightener:

I always felt guilty throwing away bits ribbon that I receive on gift wrap, but because it was winkled from bows it was unlikely I could put it to use. This was a real ahha moment to see I could just swipe it through my hair straightener, it totally gives the ribbon new life good enough to reuse.

Easy way to clean panini press:

After use, unplug the press and place a damp paper towel in it. This steam cleans then all you need to do is wipe with another towel when it’s cooled.
