This one is from my mother.

If you have a ceramic or stoneware pitcher that drips when you pour, smear a tiny amount of butter on the underside of the lip to prevent the drip.

If you have wine or grape juice stain, pour rolling boiling water on the stain it will go away

Before cutting chillies, oil your fingertips. It will then be easier to wash away the chilli residues afterwards. (I don't happen to have lots of thin plastic gloves, which I know some people resort to using).

If you keep your cooking utensils in a drawer, turn them around so the business ends are at the front of the drawer.

You won't have to fumble around to find the one you want.

I don't own a rack for my quarter sheet pan,
so I use whatever sturdy vegetable that I have
on hand.
Celery works great or thick slices of Onion too.

For foods that require a long cooking time, the vegetable rack made by Kaneohegirlinaz can collapse from he weight of the food placed on top of it. Another, more sturdy rack can be improvised by either making small balls of aluminum foil and placing the food (such as a beef roast) on top. You can also make tubes of aluminum foil by rolling a sheet, and crushing them to the right size. They hold their shape for the entire cooking time and hold the food above the pan juices like a rack does.
