Brush teeth. You want to reduce the cost of your dental care? Make your tooth paste out of 1/4 cup baking soda and 1/8 cup of water. Shake the cup well so that the ingredients blend together to form a paste. Then apply to tooth brush and use on teeth. Be careful to use the mixture gently around the gum line as it is abrasive.
Do a Cake Test – 5 minutes before it is time to stop baking, do a cake test by gently inserting a clean needle or a knife in the almost baked cake. If the needle comes out smeared with cake batter, continue baking. However, if the needle comes out with only a few crumbs on it, simply turn off the oven and take the cake out of the oven. Because the internal high temperature of the cake keeps the cooking process on for some time after you bring the cake out of the oven, it’s important to switch off the oven when the needle comes out with a few crumbs. The cake is overdone if the inserted needle comes out devoid of any crumbs.
