  2. What to do if your soup is too salty

    If you accidentally add too much salt while making soup, the subtle flavor will be ruined. To fix this, add some potato chunks and boil for a few more minutes. Potatoes absorb salt, so remove them before serving.

    It should come off easily and without leaving any marks!

  13. Unclog a toilet at home

    If your toilet is clogged, try pouring a large bowl of crushed ice (about 1 kg) into the toilet bowl, and then press the flush button.

    Let it dry, and repeat the process two to three times. This will make your cutting board more durable.

  22. Fix a stuck zipper

    If your clothing zipper gets stuck or is difficult to move, apply some wax to it, then use a dry cloth to wipe it off.

    This should make it easier to slide the zipper up and down.
