4 Unusual Ways of Using Bread Not for Food

When it comes to food, bread is present in almost every situation. But it turns out that bread can be used not only for food but for other things too.

5-Minute Crafts would like to tell you about 4 unusual ways of using bread that may surprise you.

Method 1: Removing dirt

Rye or wheat bread can assist you in cleaning your apartment. To do this, separate the crust and roll the crumbs into a ball. The gluten in the bread will absorb dirt and stains. You can clean greasy fingerprints, stains, and dust from walls, cabinets, countertops, and other surfaces. Just apply the ball of bread to the dirty spot.

This cleaning method isn’t all that new. When the first graphite pencils appeared, wet bread crumbs were used as an eraser.

Method 2: Giving marshmallows a new life

If your marshmallows have become a little dry, you can make them soft again using bread. Put a piece of soft bread in a plastic bag along with the marshmallows and leave them this way for a couple of days. It’s a good life hack for those who don’t have enough time to go buy more at a moment’s notice.

Method 3: Deterring tears when chopping onions

There are 2 ways you can use bread to avoid tears when chopping onions.

  • Place a slice of fresh white bread in your mouth, leaving half of the slice on the outside.
  • You can also cover the blunt side of the knife with it.

This will allow bread to absorb the tear enzymes secreted by the onions before they reach your eyes. You can use both options at once.

Method 4: Refreshing old paintings

If your oil painting on the wall has collected a lot of dust, you can remove it with a piece of fresh bread. And If breadcrumbs remain on the surface of the painting, you can use a soft brush to brush them away.
