House-keeping Tips

1. Sometimes while lighting the burner of the gas stove, there is a sound like air is blowing across the holes. In such situations, if we blow air into the holes from outside, the sound subsides.
2. Summers are the time, when there are a lot of flies buzzing around food. They have no discrimination in sitting on dirty stuff as well. When they sit on dirty stuff they pick up micro-organisms, which are often transferred to edible stuff. To keep these pests away from the dining table and the kitchen platform, you may want to wipe these places with a wet cloth and follow it by sprinkling camphor powder on it. After 5-10 minutes wipe it again first using a wet cloth and then with a dry cloth.
3. Often dals and flour attract beetles particularly weevils at home. To avoid these pests, rock salt can be sprinkled inside the container and then the dals can be stored in them.
