The Japanese are real masters when something needs to be done quicker and better, so here are a few chances to be more resourceful and efficient every day.
If you drop a glass on the tiles and it shatters into a million pieces, the Japanese don’t clean it with a vacuum cleaner. Instead, they use a piece of bread to catch all of the glass and porcelain pieces.
The small stains on the walls from ash or crayons can also be wiped with old and dry bread.
The pastry dough will not stick if you put it in nylon stockings.
If you have spilled egg on the floor, sprinkle it with salt (heavily), wait 10 minutes and the wipe it with paper.
