For the most part, people use their microwaves for those quick microwave meals, to reheat leftovers, heat up milk for their coffee etc., but that trusty microwave of yours actually has many more uses that you just don’t know about. Here’s how to get the most out of your nuker; prepare to marvel at how easy it can make your life!
1. Remove a Stamp
If you’ve ever pre-stamped a letter and made a mistake with your written address, you can save that stamp with just a sprinkle of water and 20 seconds in the microwave. You’ll be able to peel off the stamp and stick it on a new letter.
2. Cook Crispy Bacon
If your bacon craving just does not allow you the patience to wait for the traditional cooking time, you can actually get your bacon on faster in the microwave. Laying the slices over an upside-down bowl will ensure that the grease drips off, giving you crispy bacon goodness.
3. Make Quick Corn on the Cob
Corn on the cob takes just three minutes in the microwave if you remove all the husks and wrap it in a piece of damp paper towel.
4. Sterilize Your Cutting Board
Cutting boards are breeding grounds for bacteria, so if you don’t have time to wash it properly in between chopping or cutting, wet it under the faucet, scrub it with some liquid dish soap and pop it in the microwave.
