Rice is served daily in countless countries. In this country, however, many people prefer potatoes or pasta. Rice is not only recommended as a food, but also as the perfect throwing munitions on newlyweds or as a moisture killer in the salt shaker. These three known methods for rice utilization are still far from being all. Today, 12 more will be added.

A very cheap and decorative alternative to the knife block is to put the knives upright in a rice-filled container. The floor should be padded with a few layers of corrugated cardboard or the like, so that neither the knife tips nor the vessel will be damaged.
Clean small openings
Dirty coffee pots and vases are a real challenge when it comes to dishwashing, as sponge and brush usually do not have much to do in the narrow openings. Put a handful of rice, dishwashing liquid and some hot water in the vessel to be cleaned and swing it back and forth. If you close the openings, you can swing the vessel even more. This supports the cleaning process.
Should technology accidentally end up in the water, it can still be rescued. The part to be dried is placed in a sealable bag full of rice. Before that, however, it must first be dried as best as possible by hand, and all loose parts, such as battery, SIM card and memory card, must be removed. In addition, the device should remain in the rice for at least 24 hours, better longer.
Instead of investing in baking weights, tartlets can also be “hollowed out” with rice. A piece of baking paper is placed over the unbaked dough, and plenty of rice on top. You can use the same rice again and again.

Determine oil temperature
To be sure that the oil is hot enough for frying and frying, you can throw in some rice. If it is too cold, the rice sinks to the ground.

Clean the coffee grinder
Coffee lovers appreciate self-ground coffee beans. Even though coffee grinders have many hard-to-reach corners, they should be cleaned occasionally because coffee beans also contain oils that can rancid over time. Rice grains have the perfect size and strength to clean the mill. Conduct a meal with rice instead of coffee beans. Afterwards the parts are brushed clean with a brush. Spice mills can also be cleaned this way.
Produce heat cushion
Rice-filled fabric cushions are ideal as individual and inexpensive heat cushions. So you can also use fabric remnants meaningful. It’s even faster if you fill a sock with rice. Before use, the heat pad is heated in the microwave for 30 seconds.
Toys for pets
Animal toys can be made in the same way. However, very thick, robust fabric should be chosen for this, and the seams must be specially sewn. For cats, the toy can also be filled with dried catnip.
Rice is also the perfect filler for maracas, so you can get closer to the dream of your own band. For small doses or empty surprise eggs can be filled. If you stick them between two plastic spoons, you even have a practical handle.
