To clean out your coffee grinder after grinding spices, place the heel from a loaf of bread in it and grind away. The bread will pick up all the loose spices left behind. Stale bread does a lousy job. Use the fresh soft one.

A handful of uncooked rice works well too.

That egg white can be used on your skin face as a musk to clean your blocked pores. You just glow in one day.
