13-   Stuck without a knife on a camping trip? If you have some dental floss this can be great for cutting soft foods such as pastry, cakes and cheese!

14-   For a heart busting burger, cut out the middle of a raw pattie by using an upturned glass. Fry the pattie along with an egg craked into the hole. Finish with a slice of cheese and pop in a bun. Then lie down.

15-   To lengthen the shelf life of your green leaves, place them into a freezer bag and fill with your breath. The carbon dioxide will keep it fresher, longer!

16-   Back to the cookie cutters – use them as stencils for cake decorations with sprinkles!

17-   Once you’ve opened your new tub of ice-cream (but not finished it, does this happen?) pop it into a freezer bag before putting in the freezer, it will remain as soft as when you first opened it.

18-   To get the most juice out of your lemon (or other fruit) try squeezing them with a good pair of tongs to get every last drop out – great for BBQ’s!
